Year after year, Qualcomm has proven to deserve the title of Android performance king. The most powerful mobiles that we find in Spain usually carry Snapdragon 800 series processors, and although Huawei, Samsung or MediaTek are making great progress, it seems that finally Californians are still the top option.
After a year in which the Snapdragon 865 and 865+ have prevailed, it seems that the new models are already around the corner. Although they will not reach mobile phones until 2021, the Snapdragon 875 will be able to meet them before the end of the year.
Qualcomm announces its annual event where it presents its best Snapdragon
The Qualcomm Tech Summit is usually the most important event of the year for the Californian manufacturer. At this event we meet the greatest innovations, among which the Snapdragon 800 series processors stand out, chips that year after year raise the bar of what a mobile is capable of.

The event, traditionally held in Hawaii this year will have only modalityon-line, something that most of us will not affect (since we followed the event in streaming from before). The start date is next December 1, 2020, practically in two months.
On what we expect from the new Qualcomm processor, perhaps the most important change is in the improvements aimed at 5G. Despite the fact that the Snapdragon 865 and 865+ are processors that are sold together with a 5G modem (which makes practically the entire high-end of 2020 have 5G) this was large and was not inside the processor itself, but as an external module.
Integrate the modem back to theSystem on a Chip It can have a positive impact on energy consumption, since our experience with 5G in 2020 has not been as positive as we expected due to the increase in energy consumption, which has required more weight and batteries without autonomy improvements.
Another improvement we expect is the improvement in the manufacturing process. With the iPad Air, Apple has already shown that the A14 processor is in a 5-nanometer manufacturing process, a palpable improvement over the current high-end 7-nanometer.
All the news about the latest from Qualcomm will be revealed on December 1, a date that we look forward to with great enthusiasm.
