Qualcomm reportedly has a lower-end variant of its new Snapdragon 888 flagship processor within the works.

According to WinFuture’s Roland Quandt, the Snapdragon 888 variation would sport the mannequin quantity ‘SM8325’ versus the 888’s ‘SM8350.’ The foremost distinction, in keeping with Quandt, is that there’s no built-in 5G modem within the SM8325 chipset.

In different phrases, that might imply producers will be capable to leverage 888-like efficiency in smartphones destined for markets which have restricted or no 5G.

Android Police notes the chips may very well be a preferred selection in Europe or India, however I’d think about it’d make an incredible inclusion in some non-5G telephones coming to Canada too.

While we don’t know rather more concerning the chip aside from it’ll be a spinoff of the Snapdragon 888, and it gained’t have built-in 5G, Qualcomm will doubtless strip another flagship options from the rumoured chip.

That may imply limiting the pace, the variety of cores or different options to make sure there’s extra motive to go for the Snapdragon 888 than simply 5G.

Quandt additionally confirmed in a submit on WinFuture that Qualcomm was engaged on a successor to the Snapdragon 888 for 2022.

It’s value noting that Qualcomm typically creates derivatives of its flagship chips, most notably with its ‘Plus’ chips. Last yr, Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 865 and later a sooner variant, the 865 Plus. Qualcomm even launched a Snapdragon 870 chip earlier this yr that’s a suped-up 865+.

We’ll doubtless be taught extra concerning the new, non-5G Snapdragon 888 variant within the coming months.
