Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 was announced last year, and so far, it’s only shown up in a few different smartphones including Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series. In the next month or two, though, a lot more Snapdragon 865 phones are on the way, and now, Qualcomm is teasing just how many.
In a press release, Qualcomm reveals that there are currently over 70 different devices set to be released using the Snapdragon 865 platform. This, of course, makes sense, given Qualcomm supplies most flagship smartphones in the Android industry. As 5G grows, too, Qualcomm’s chips become even more attractive thanks to the X55 modem.
Companies producing Snapdragon 865 phones in cooperation with Qualcomm include the likes of Samsung, Sony, Xiaomi, ZTE, ASUS, Black Shark, Fujitsu Connected Technologies Limited, iQOO, Lenovo, Nubia, OPPO, Realme, Redmi, and Vivo. In the press release, Qualcomm also mentions by name a handful of these upcoming devices, even though a handful of them haven’t been officially announced yet.
