Snapdragon 888 Pro is rumoured to release
Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 888 last year and now there are my rumours about a Plus variant. There's a rumour about a 4G-only variant, which is dubbed the Snapdragon 888 Pro.
Qualcomm plans to release a faster variant of the Snapdragon 888 (SM8350) without 5G support. Android Authority reported that the 4G-only variant would allow Qualcomm to bypass the US ban for Huawei. In fact, the so-called Snapdragon 888 Pro is expected to be equipped on the Huawei P50 series. Qualcomm is releasing a 4G only variant because the 5G isn't available in many parts of the world yet.
The Snapdragon 888+ (SM8450) could also be launching soon. This chipset is allegedly going to be a major upgrade to the Snapdragon 888. Not only is it manufactured on a new 4nm process, but it will also have more powerful CPU and GPU cores. Which makes it weird since such upgrades would usually mean it's a next-gen chipset with a new name like Snapdragon 889.
It's probably not a stretch to assume that there would be two new flagship-class chipsets on the way, but please take these news with a grain of salt..
