Qualcomm explained the name of the new Snapdragon processor
In recent years, everyone has become accustomed to the fact that the flagship Snapdragon processors received the model number 8x5. Therefore, after the Snapdragon 865, everyone expected to see the Snapdragon 875, but instead the Snapdragon 888 was introduced. Qualcomm decided to explain why this name was chosen.
As explained by representatives of Qualcomm, Snapdragon 888 uses a new naming method, which was announced before the official presentation, but then almost everyone thought it was a joke. However, the bottom line is that the name "888" was chosen for the reason that in China this number is considered very lucky and happy.
It is now unclear what Qualcomm will name the next flagship processor. It is possible that it will be Snapdragon 999. It is no less interesting what the company will do when it reaches the "thousand". Perhaps the manufacturer will completely change the approach to naming its chips.
The first devices based on Snapdragon 888 are expected to appear as early as next month. Some manufacturers have even announced their flagship smartphones. For example, Xiaomi announced the Mi11 and realme showed the new Race.
