Qualcomm announce the Snapdragon 855 Plus - destined for the Google Pixel 4?

"The primary change is the overclocked Kryo 485 CPU Prime core, now clocked at 2.96GHz".

Gamers, rejoice. Qualcomm's newest mobile processor has been built for speed - just in time for the rollout of ultra-fast 5G cellular networks. ASUS has already confirmed the Snapdragon 855 Plus will be included in its upcoming ROG Phone 2. While we've all been expecting flagship specs, and hopefully some insane gaming-oriented features from the smartphone, which included the Snapdragon 855, Asus has now announced that it'll in fact be using an even better processor in the ROG Phone II - the Snapdragon 855 Plus.

Qualcomm claims that Snapdragon 855 Plus will raise the bar for elite gamers and elevate experiences for 5G, gaming, AI and XR.

What this means is that it Realme could possibly be embracing the new chipset incidentally or it could be a start to speculations of the next device from Realme that will likely power the new Snapdragon 855+ SoC.

San Francisco: Aiming at mobile gaming enthusiasts, Qualcomm has unveiled the Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset with a higher central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) clock speeds. All the other features are similar to the Snapdragon 855 SoC.

The new chip is aimed at gaming phones and other devices that will tap into 5G, the new cellular standard that promises download speeds in the multi-gigabits; artificial intelligence; and augmented and virtual reality. And with Apple rumoured to release a new A-series chip later this autumn, a small bump in performance for the chips installed in competing Android phones certainly won't hurt. The Snapdragon 855 Plus is created to offer a tangible boost in performance for power-hungry mobile games like "Fortnite" and others in the Google Play Store. Thus this part still needs a separate chip, the Qualcomm X50 modem, to enable 5G connectivity. All Qualcomm will say is that it's 15 percent faster than the 640 in the Snapdragon 855.
