The Snapdragon 835 is expected to be the best Android smartphone processor in 2022, according to all of the indicators, and we just recently learned which manufacturers will be the first to market with phones based on the new chips.
According to Digital Chat Station (via Phandroid), both Xiaomi and Motorola are attempting to get their Snapdragon 898 products in front of buyers before anybody else, with the potential for these phones to appear before year’s end (even if on-sale dates are a few weeks later).
Moto’s Snapdragon 898 machine is also confirmed to debut at the end of the year. It is said that they are still preparing to cooperate with Xiaomi grabs the start…November 5, 2021
That’s about what you’d expect from Xiaomi, as the Mi 11 is the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chip. But Motorola, a more well-known maker of budget phones, is a bit of an unusual inclusion.
What will happen now that you’ve completed this task?
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 is a good bet for the Xiaomi 12. We expect it to be released somewhere in late 2021, roughly one year after its predecessor. Motorola’s release plans are more difficult to predict.
There have been rumors about a Moto G200, but it will most likely use the older Snapdragon 888 processor and will not be as affordable as Motorola refreshes its other G series phones every January.
At this stage, all we can really do is wait and see how the release schedule plays out. The Snapdragon 898 SoC is expected to be included in some models of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series, but they won’t be released until later in 2022.
Should we be concerned about the Snapdragon 898?
The big concern surrounding the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 is how much extra performance it will provide over the Snapdragon 888 and how quickly we can expect flagship Android smartphones in 2022 to be as a result.
Ice Universe, a well-respected leaker, has just posted some unofficial benchmark results for the Snapdragon 898 processor, suggesting that we’ll have a chip that’s around 15% quicker than the one that is currently available.
However, take this number with a grain of salt because the technology may still need further optimization.
Qualcomm is expected to utilize a 4nm manufacturing process for the Snapdragon 898, as we reported in September.
According to those leaked specs, the chip will be built on a 4 nanometer process. That should result in superior performance and a lower-power drawer than previous generations’ 5nm processes.
Given Apple’s difficulties to develop 3nm chips and may be compelled to stick with efficient 4nm options, it follows that the new Snapdragon will at least match the design in terms of performance and power.
The Snapdragon 898 is expected to launch in the following few weeks, according to reports. Because Qualcomm typically unveils its latest processors at the end of the year in December, it shouldn’t be long until the Snapdragon 898 becomes official. We’ll keep you updated on all important announcements as soon as they happen.
