We are approaching 2021 which, as always, will see a very busy start to the year with new consumer electronics devices, especially with regard to smartphones. We all know that the start of a new calendar year means the renewal of the smartphone series by manufacturers, and although we have had a different year 2020, due to the pandemic, the year 2021 will not be any different in terms of launches.
The Snapdragon 875, which has yet to be officially announced, is expected to be the most coveted chip of 2021, and it is expected to be the main driver of the best smartphones. And like every year, Qualcomm will not have stock to fill all orders immediately, so some manufacturers receive some units at an early stage, and others at a later stage.
It is in this sense that it is revealed that Xiaomi should be the manufacturer who will be entitled to the first shipment of chips, and will keep it for a while, in the form of exclusivity. Thus, the Xiaomi Mi 11 should be the first smartphone to hit the market with the Snapdragon 875 and at a later date, Samsung will receive part of the stock, to equip its Galaxy S21.
Snapdragon 875 could be an exclusive Xiaomi
It is not yet known how long Xiaomi will keep the “exclusive”, but some reports point to one month.
For those who do not know, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 will be officially presented next December, and should have 8 cores (with 1 + 3 + 4 configuration), 5nm technology and the Snapdragon X60 5G modem. For its market debut, however, we’ll have to wait until the first few months of next year, when it starts arriving on some high-end Android smartphones. In addition, according to some rumors, this chip, although technologically more advanced, will cost roughly the same price as the Snapdragon 865+, so it alone will not be a reason for the increase in prices of new smartphones.
