The latest news mentioned that the SnapDragon 860 will use the 7nm process and is also a 5G full-network, in terms of baseband configuration in line with the SnapSnapdragon 865 and SnapSnapdragon 865 Plus.
Details of the SnapDragon 860 are unclear, though sources say it could be a slimmed-down version of the SnapDragon 875, and the OPPO will make its debut and be the first to be in its next generation of lightweight flagships.
Sources said Qualcomm’s launch of the SnapDragon 860 may be considering the SnapDragon 8 series and the SnapDragon 7 series, the increasing price fault, so the SnapDragon 860 will have to stand in this one, to ensure performance at the same time, there is a certain guarantee of price.
Earlier, it was reported that Samsung 5nm process problems, for the sake of insurance Qualcomm will be the corresponding processor orders to TSMC.
Qualcomm made an urgent request to TSMC last month for help, hoping the latter could contract x60 basebands and SnapDragon875G processors because of problems with Samsung’s 5nm process. If according to the previous Qualcomm plan, the previous SnapDragon875G orders are mainly for Samsung, the subsequent transfer of a portion to TSMC.
This is not the first time such news has been reported, but TSMC 5nm production capacity is now full, mainly Apple’s A14 processor and Huawei’s new Kirin Core.
