On Monday, 19th of July, tech giant Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 888 Plus, the upgraded version of the flagship Snapdragon 888 processor. It has also boosted its AI capabilities.

The Upgrades

Snapdragon 888 Plus’ CPU, a.k.a the brains, has been upgraded to 3GHz. It will make a noticeable difference in the performance of phones when streaming videos or playing games. 

Qualcomm has also improved the AI capabilities, allowing for a more immersive gaming and video experience. Statistics show that gaming accounts for 43% of smartphone use, so this is great news for gamers.

Device manufacturers are now working on over 130 devices with the Snapdragon 888 and the new 888 Plus. They will be available in Q3 of 2021. 

Cristiano Amon, the incoming CEO, said: “It’s all designed to bring the most premium mobile experiences to flagship Android devices across the globe.”

It’s the beginning of a new era for gaming phones.

Beyond Phones

Qualcomm also revealed its attempts to expand 5G beyond phones. As their cellular tech can be found in most smart and wireless devices, the company is looking to maximize every prospect. 

Amond explained: “Qualcomm is really… capitalizing on the potential that we have now for our technology to move beyond mobile.”

Teodora devoted her whole life to words – reading, writing and trying to be original on social media. She got certified in digital marketing but still feels she’s not cool enough to be an influencer. (We all disagree – she influences the team pretty well.) She finished a master’s degree focused in Literature, Publishing, Mass Media. Her hobbies include traveling, and reading. Teddy hopes that yoga will be the thing to finally teach her some patience and show her the path toward world domination. Maybe modern tech can also help her with that.
