It is claimed that US technology company Qualcomm will launch a new flagship processor in the third quarter of this year. It is alleged that the name of the new processor to be released by the company will be Snapdragon 865 Plus.
The first smartphones using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor have been announced, and in the future, more and more smartphones using this processor will be released. However, the subject of this news will not be the phones using these processors, but the new processor to be released by the company.
A Weibo user called a digital chat station claimed that Qualcomm will announce an enhanced version of Snapdragon 865 in the third quarter of this year. The name of the new processor will be Snapdragon 865 Plus.

The digital chat station also said that the prototypes of Snapdragon 865 Plus will be ready in two months. The company, which announced two flagship processors last year, went to a similar naming strategy and named its chips Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 855 Plus.
The company, which released two flagship processors in 2016, then determined the naming of the chips as Snapdragon 820 and Snapdragon 821. There were no plus versions of the Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 845 processors from Qualcomm.
There are no big differences between the two chips. However, in plus variants, CPU and GPU clock speeds are higher than non-plus versions. A similar policy is expected in the new Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. It is possible to learn more about the features of the new processor as the release date approaches.
