Qualcomm-Snapdragon-875

Qualcomm upcoming flagship processor Snapdragon 875 will launch soon, the official event is set for December 1. it will come with faster performance, the new chip will also bring support for 100W fast charging thanks to the latest Quick Charge 5.

Leakster Digital Chat Station says that there will be 5 new flagship smartphones in the first three months of 2021 that will offer the potent combination of the 875 chip and a 100W power brick.

These phones might be Samsung's Galaxy S21 Series, OnePlus 9 Pro, Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Pro, a Meizu phone.It’s not clear which – if any – of these will leverage the 100W charging support of the chipset. The latest leaks suggest that Samsung will stick with 45W for the S21 Ultra, OnePlus and Xiaomi will probably want to promote their own charging solutions as well.

Of course, at this point it’s all about marketing and brand recognition, all these phones will support USB Power Delivery in one form or another (in fact, Quick Charge 5 itself is built on top of USB-PD). Could there be other S875-based phones from other makers? We'll have to keep an eye on the rumor mill.
