There are four more Snapdragon 888 phones, 888+ would have come in H2 in 2021

Xiaomi Mi 11 is the first phone powered by Snapdragon 888 and Xiaomi will enjoy a short period of exclusivity. However, this will soon end as a leakster Digital chat station reports that there are a few more on the way.

The first is iQOO 7, which is officially set for a January 11 presentation. Vivo X60 Pro + follows, after the launch of X60 and X60 Pro, both using Exynos 1080. According to DCS these will be the three 888-powered phones that will be available in China in January (the flash sale of the Mi 11 is scheduled for January 1).

Then it’s Realme Koi (codenamed Race), the company’s executives have officially confirmed the 888 chip, but have not yet revealed the release date. DCS adds another phone to the list – Redmi “K11” (code name Haydn). This is probably the Redmi K40 Pro and will be one of the most affordable Snapdragon 888 phones. But the 888’s hegemony won’t last forever – there’s an extra version on the way.

Snapdragon 888+ is tentatively scheduled for launch in the second half of next year, the filter says, adding that Qualcomm capped the vanilla chipset at 2.84 GH.

This is to prevent manufacturers from trying to overclock the chip. 888+ will definitely come with higher frequencies for both processor and GPU. 865+, for example, brought a 10% increase for both. A clock boost should be fairly easy, as the 888 has returned to its original clock speed of 865 (at least for the CPU).


All its performance gains come from the new core architecture. Qualcomm does not officially reveal GPU clocks, so it’s harder to say how much of the boost is overclocking and how much the architecture is improving.
