A Chinese source at DigitalChatStation says Qualcomm is developing a new single-chip system to be produced by TSMC using a 7-nanometer process. The new single-chip system will use Cortex-A77 and Cortex-A55 processor cores. It is reported that this platform will be more productive than the Snapdragon 865+, but will not be comparable with the upcoming Snapdragon 875.
As for the chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 875, it must be produced using a 5-nanometer process TSMC. The source reports that the code name of the processor Snapdragon 875 is Lahaina. In addition, he claims that the manufacturer is preparing two models: SM8350 and SM8350AB (Lahaina and Lahaina Pro).
These single crystal systems will differ in the configuration of the processor cores. Only Lahaina Pro will receive the latest Cortex X1 core, which will provide significant performance gains as well as an improved graphics processor.
It is expected that the manufacturer will present the new products by the end of this year.
