Qualcomm Launches Snapdragon 865, OEMs rush to announce their Phones with 5G but there is a catch

Qualcomm very recently launches is new chipset Snapdragon 865 which is supposed to be an upgrade over SD 855+.

You you should expect a lot of phones especially Flagships in 2020 to launch with it as immediately after the launch we could see multiple companies and their Social Media Handles active with announcements of 5G phones with SD 865.

But there is a catch , SD 865 does not come with an integrated 5G model built right in to the chipset.

For 5G capabilities it can be paired with newer Snapdragon X55 Modem with 5G capabilities. It can assumed that this model will require more power from your juice pack.

So you can expect most of the TOP FLASHIPs requiring more processing with SD865 and extra battery if 5G modem is added.

However for other you can expect SD 765.
