Google, LG Could Ditch Qualcomms Snapdragon 865 for Their Flagships

Google, LG Could Ditch Qualcomms Snapdragon 865 for Their Flagships

Tue, 24 Mar 2020 17:52:15  

Google and South Korean tech major LG are likely to skip the top tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform this year for their smartphones as the cost of the chipset is too high, a report claimed. The Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL don't actually use Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 865 as per the Android code base.

Both are running the Snapdragon 765G, a chip that's one step down from the 865 in Qualcomm's lineup. There isn't actually a Snapdragon 865 Google phone in the Android repository, ArsTechnica reported on Monday.

LG is taking a similar approach to its 2020 flagship, the LG G9 ThinQ: instead of shipping the Snapdragon 865, the company is also opting for the cheaper 765G, according to website Naver.

HMD Global also did the same thing recently with the launch of the Nokia 8.3 smartphone.

There are several reasons for the higher price.

First, the Snapdragon 865 has taken a step backward in terms of SoC integration from previous years. The chipser features no onboard modem -- instead, it offloads the 4G and 5G connectivity to a separate chip called the X55 Modem, the ArsTechnica report added.
