Qualcomm has listed several upcoming flagship phones that will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 5G Mobile Platform. For the first time, we are seeing the Asus ROG Phone 3 and the ZenFone 7 getting an official mention. Surprisingly, the highly anticipated OnePlus 8 series and the LG V60 ThinQ do not feature in this list.

At the "What's Next in 5G" event, Qualcomm announced a list of devices to be released this year that would be powered by the Snapdragon 865 5G Mobile Platform. Since the announcement of the Snapdragon 865, more than 70 designs have been announced or are in development. According to Qualcomm, the following upcoming flagship devices are powered by the Snapdragon 865:

While we are already aware of many of the models listed, this is perhaps the first time that the Asus ROG Phone 3 and the ZenFone 7 are being officially named anywhere. Sharp has recently announced its Aquos R5G flagship, but it might be exclusive to the Japanese market alongside the Fujitsu FCNT arrows 5G. Vivo is all set to launch the Apex 2020 on February 28. 

Interestingly though, Qualcomm does not mention the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, which are expected to launch sometime in April. The LG V60 ThinQ also doesn't get a mention. That these phones are under development is not exactly any secret so we can only guess that the companies didn't want them to be listed here for reasons best known to them.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
