There are plenty of powerful chipsets in the smartphone business right now - with several contenders for the top spot. You could pick the more common choice, being the Snapdragon 865 and 865+, or go with Samsung and the latest Exynos chipset. Even Huawei’s Kirin chipsets were giving a tough time to the other top picks. However, Snapdragon is the main choice for most manufacturers, as it’s not only powerful, but efficient as well.
However, it’s been a tad bit too long since we’ve been riding the Snapdragon 865+ train. We needed a change, and we’re getting it soon - as the Snapdragon 875 is expected to release in the month of December of this year itself. But, as the new chipset from Qualcomm is about to be unveiled in a month or two, an important question remains - which phone manufacturer is going to be the first one to get a Snapdragon 875 in their phone?
Well, turns out, it’s going to be Xiaomi that will beat everyone to the race - once again. If you’re wondering why we’re saying “once again” - then it’s because this isn’t the first they’re coming out on top in the Android race. First, the Chinese brand was the first to actually get the Qualcomm Quick Charge 5.0 in their phones - with the Mi 10 Ultra rocking it, as it has an absurd 120W fast charging capability. Moreover, their Redmi K30 Racing Edition 5G still is the only phone in the world to be rocking the Snapdragon 768G chipset.
However, according to reports, this is only going to stand true inside of China, as globally Samsung is going to be the first phone maker to use the Snapdragon 875, inside its S21.
The Snapdragon 875 chip is based on 5nm, and will be running along the Snapdragon X60 5G modem.
