The Snapdragon 865 is the latest high-end mobile processor launched by Qualcomm. Equip most smartphones premium launched these days, like the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Galaxy S20 (in some regions).

But at a time when the first models with this processor start to arrive on the market, we are already talking about its successor. According to one leaker, the Snapdragon 865 Plus is expected to launch in the third quarter of the year (between July and September).

This rumor was advanced by Digital chat station on the social network Weibo, and we must face it for now as just the speculation that it is. Still, Qualcomm will only be consistent with the previous year if it does so.

It is good to remember that Qualcomm had two top processors last year – the Snpadragon 855 and Snapgragon 855 Plus. However, both Snapdragon 845 and Snapdragon 835 did not have a Plus version.

We must go back until 2016 to the previous year in which Qualcomm had adopted the same strategy. Then he launched the Snapdragon 820, with the Snapdragon 821 later on the market that year.

Unsurprisingly, Qualcomm’s future processor should offer better CPU and GPU performance. This is also the processor that we should see launched on devices in the second half of the year, from brands such as OnePlus, Samsung or Xiaomi.
