“The Titanium M6 5G is first officially confirmed handset to rock the upcoming flagship chipset, which is expected to launch in December”
Chinese luxury smartphone and watchmaker 8848 could be among the first OEMs to rock the rumoured Snapdragon 865 SoC. The phone maker will reportedly launch smartphone dubbed as Titanium M6 5G with the next-gen flagship SoC from Qualcomm soon. As the name suggests, the handset will offer 5G connectivity for high-speed internet. While there is no word on the launch date yet, the Titanium M6 5G is the first officially confirmed phone to rock the upcoming Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. Chipmaker Qualcomm is expected to take the wraps off the successor of the flagship processor Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC in December.
The chipset is likely to be Snapdragon 865 that will support both LTE and 5G connectivity. The SoC will compete against the likes of Apple A13 Bionic chip and Huawei’s Kirin 990 mobile platform that powers iPhone 11 series and Mate 30 Pro, respectively. The Snapdragon 865 is said to be manufactured by Samsung using the 7nm extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV) process, which is “more competitive and advanced than the TSMC’s 7nm process.” Of course, the chipset will be more powerful and energy-efficient than ever and will most likely rock next year’s high-end flagship smartphones.
Talking about the Titanium M6 5G, the handset is confirmed to sport a 6.01-inch AMOLED screen. The phone is said to be equipped with impressive 12 gigs of RAM and 1TB internal storage. For photography, the handset is slated to feature a 64MP sensor that will be capable of clicking images in 100MP resolution
Apart from 8848, Samsung is also expected to be among the first OEMs to launch a smartphone with the latest Qualcomm chipset. The handset will most likely be Galaxy S11 series, which is rumoured to launch in February – ahead of MWC 2020 in Barcelona, Spain.
