Some interesting information about the non-plus successor to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC has been offered up by a noted tech leaker. It appears the chip will be called the Snapdragon 898, and it will sport a prime core based on the ARM Cortex-X2 architecture that will be able to hit clock rates of above 3.0 GHz.

For quite a while now it has been presumed that the proper successor to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (if we regard the 888+ as simply an extension) would be known as the Snapdragon 895. However, the tipster Ice Universe has decided to throw a spanner in the works by posting about a “Dragon 898”.

It appears the potential Snapdragon 898 will come with an X2-based prime core that will enable the chip to record frequencies of up to 3.09 GHz. In comparison, the maximum clock rate for the Snapdragon 888 with its X1-based prime core is 2.84 GHz, while the SD 888+ gets a boost to 3.0 GHz.

If the previously expected Snapdragon 895 is actually the Snapdragon 898, then there have already been plenty of specs leaked in regard to this particular chipset. Apparently, an Adreno 730 GPU part is incorporated for graphics duties, while the 8-core CPU part is made up of 1x prime core (Cortex-X2), 3x big cores (Cortex-A710), and 4x little cores (2x high-frequency Cortex-A510 + 2x low-frequency Cortex-A510).
