Samsung is manufacturing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chipset

Samsung is manufacturing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chipset

Qualcomm usually unveils its next-generation flagship silicon in December, and we’re expecting the latest chipset (SM8350) to be called the Snapdragon 875.

Taiwan’s TSMC has largely manufactured Qualcomm’s last few generations of flagship processors, but Business Korea and Hankyung report that the Snapdragon 875 will now be manufactured by Samsung Electronics.

The former publication notes that the Snapdragon 875 will be manufactured on a 5nm process, making for a smaller size than the current-generation Snapdragon 865 series. The likes of Apple, Huawei, MediaTek, and Samsung are also expected to adopt 5nm designs for their flagship processors.

Business Korea reports that the contract to manufacture the new Qualcomm silicon is worth $1 billion, and that mass production of the new chipset is already underway. It adds that the Samsung Galaxy S30 series, as well as phones from Xiaomi and Oppo will use the new processor, which is generally par for the course for flagship Snapdragon hardware.

This wouldn’t be the first time Samsung produces a Snapdragon flagship chipset, as it previously manufactured 2016’s Snapdragon 820. It would nevertheless represent a big win for Samsung if confirmed.

We’ll need to wait for more Snapdragon 875 leaks and the official reveal for more information, but we’re expecting the chipset to be equipped with Arm’s Cortex-X1 and Cortex-A78 CPU cores, as well as the Snapdragon X60 5G modem.
