Qualcomm revealed the Snapdragon 888 Plus 5G SoC for the upcoming flagship devices. The newly announced SoC will come with a slightly higher clock speed and improved AI performance than its predecessor. It also comes with a built-in modem for 5G technology.
The said SoC is slightly more powerful than the regular Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 which was released in December last year. The regular Snapdragon 888 was used in all the flagship smartphones released in the first half of 2021.
The Plus model of the flagship SoC comes with one powerful cortex-X1 core with a 2.84 GHz frequency. It also has a triple Cortex-A78 core and Quad Cortex-A55 cores. All the cores are slightly clocked higher than the regular version of the silicon. It comes with Qualcomm’s Adreno 660 GPU which handles all the graphics-intensive tasks and Qualcomm’s X60 5G modem for the 5G technology. The X60 modem can achieve a data transfer rate of 7.5 gigabytes per minute.
This silicon is clocked at a maximum frequency of 3.0 GHz. For the graphics required for games and apps, it is equipped with all the relevant support like OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0 FP, Vulkan 1.1, and DirectX 12.

It is the flagship chipset that will be released on the high-end devices from top OEMs so it will come with all the top features. There is also the support of NFC technology, a receiver of satellite navigation system GPS, USB 3.1, GLONASS.
OEMs can also use the 4K display with the support of a 60 Hz refresh rate and QHD+ resolution with up to 144 Hz higher refresh rate. It also has the ability to support 200 megapixels of camera quality.
Snapdragon 888 Plus 5G SoC is built on the 5nm fabrication similar to its regular version. The first official smartphone to use this silicon will be released in Q3 of 2021. So we have to wait a little bit to see which OEM will use this newly announced SoC first.
