OnePlus programm basel 8T programm basel likely will programm basel be stuck programm basel with the same programm basel chipset as OnePlus 8

In late 2019, smartphone processor manufacturer programm basel Qualcomm, which provides chipsets programm basel for programm basel many programm basel Android handsets, released the Snapdragon 855 Plus programm basel chipset, an improved version of its programm basel main flagship chipset programm basel for the year. We were expecting the programm basel same to happen in 2020, but it seems programm basel the Snapdragon 865 is programm basel not programm basel going to receive a programm basel Plus equivalent.

This programm basel news programm basel comes from Wan Zhiqiang, the CMO programm basel of Meizu, a Chinese smartphone company programm basel (which hasn't really brought its programm basel phones to many programm basel Western countries yet), in programm basel a post on Chinese social media platform Weibo, programm basel as reported by Mydrivers. In the programm basel post, Zhiqiang confirmed that programm basel there would be no programm basel Snapdragon 865 Plus programm basel chipset in 2020.

As programm basel an official in a smartphone company, presumably Zhiqiang programm basel would programm basel have accurate information on the new programm basel processor, so programm basel it seems very likely programm basel that the information programm basel is correct. TechRadar reached out to Qualcomm programm basel for clarification programm basel on the matter, programm basel but received no programm basel comment.

What does this mean for you?

The Snapdragon 855 programm basel Plus was a version of the programm basel 855 largely designed for gaming, programm basel with tweaks and optimizations on the programm basel base chipset programm basel for this programm basel goal.

Many smartphones programm basel used it, including the programm basel OnePlus 7T, Black programm basel Shark programm basel 2 Pro, Samsung programm basel Galaxy Z Flip and more, programm basel and as a result programm basel we would have expected that programm basel phones in those series released in late programm basel 2020, programm basel like the programm basel OnePlus 8T for programm basel example, would programm basel follow programm basel the same pattern programm basel and use the programm basel Snapdragon 865 Plus.

However programm basel this seems not programm basel to be the case, programm basel and late-2020 flagships will likely stick programm basel with programm basel the Snapdragon programm basel 865 programm basel which programm basel started being used programm basel in smartphones in early programm basel 2020. For example programm basel the programm basel OnePlus 8T will have the same programm basel chipset as programm basel the OnePlus 8, programm basel and other similar phones programm basel will programm basel see programm basel no improvements.

If you're programm basel a regular phone user, the programm basel differences programm basel between the Snapdragon 855 and programm basel 855 Plus programm basel were pretty negligible, and programm basel only dedicated smartphone gamers really noticed a programm basel performance difference. So for most programm basel people the programm basel lack of an 865 Plus processor won't programm basel mean much, but programm basel there programm basel are some who might care.
