OnePlus celebrates 8 years since its founding next year.
Qualcomm officially unveiled the next-generation Snapdragon 888 flagship SoC at this week’s Snapdragon Technology Summit 2020.
Qualcomm has officially explained why the Snapdragon 888 name was chosen over the Snapdragon 875. The main reason is that 888 is one of the lucky numbers in China. 8 means infinity, success, and inner wisdom. Also, the number 8 is always present in Qualcomm’s flagship platforms, and this is the manufacturer’s best single-chip system at the moment.
Liu Zuohu, founder and CEO of OnePlus, spoke to Weibo users after the Snapdragon 888. He stated that next year OnePlus would celebrate 8 years since its founding. The OnePlus leader asked how they would feel about a new flagship smartphone coming out under OnePlus 888. Of course, this is not confirmation that the company wants to rename the OnePlus 9 to the OnePlus 888. Still, usually, Chinese companies turn to fans for opinions when they think about something like that.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 specifications were revealed yesterday. This platform uses the Arm Cortex-X1 super-core, which runs at 2.84 GHz and three Cortex-A78 and four Cortex-A55 cores. The platform also received an integrated Snapdragon x60 5G modem and an Adreno 660 graphics processor.
According to the latest reports, OnePlus may postpone presenting the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro from April to March next year.
