Mobile chipset giant Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 888 Plus 5G Compute Platform, an evolutionary step up from its previous flagship chipset.
“Snapdragon is synonymous with premium Android experiences,” Qualcomm senior vice president Christopher Patrick said. “Our latest flagship Snapdragon 888 Plus 5G Mobile Platform will help deliver the premium entertainment, connectivity, and gaming experiences users deserve. We’re excited to see OEMs launch with products based on our highest performing platform.”
This is the second year in a row in which Qualcomm has announced a so-called “Plus” version of its previous flagship mobile chipset, and as with last year, the gains are modest. The Snapdragon 888 Plus runs at a clock speed of 3 GHz, up from 2.84 GHz in the original 888. And the firm says that AI performance is up almost 20 percent.
