Qualcomm will reportedly unveil the Snapdragon 865 Plus sometime in July, according to a Weibo post by Ice Universe. The chip is expected to make its debut alongside the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Fold 2, and the ASUS ROG Phone 3. It is billed to power most flagships released in the latter half of 2020 as well.

A report from earlier this year stated that Qualcomm would not release the Snapdragon 865 Plus. However, the rumor mill has been abuzz with several mentions of the chip. Seasoned leaker Ice Universe has now confirmed that the Snapdragon 865 Plus will be released in July.

Ice Universe further adds that the Snapdragon 865 Plus will ship with most flagships released in the latter half of 2020. The upcoming Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Fold 2 are expected to be one of the first phones to run the new silicon. ASUS's ROG Phone 3 is a likely candidate as well.

The exact specifications of the Snapdragon 865 Plus are still shrouded in mystery. Based on the one appearance it made on AnTuTu, the chip outperforms its predecessor by roughly 12%. That number will be much higher, as the test was very likely performed on an engineering sample of the smartphone.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus will likely follow the tried and tested 1+3+4 design of its predecessor. We can expect to see one prime Cortex-A77 core clocked at 3.1GHz, three high-performance Cortex-A77 cores, and four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. Unfortunately, we will have to wait until next year to see ARM's newest Cortex-A78 and Cortex-X1 super core, as Qualcomm will debut it on the Snapdragon 875.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
