Regardless of whether the real name will be Snapdragon 895, the successor of Snapdragon 888 will be the latest processor built by Samsung for Qualcomm. We learned about the Snap 888 thanks to Xiaomi Mi 11, the first smartphone in the world to integrate it. It will then be equipped by Meizu 18 Pro e OnePlus 9. It is a very powerful SoC, currently the first in its class. However the research is always active and Qualcomm will produce its heir. According to the information reported by Digitimes however, this could be it the latest product from Samsung.
Snapdragon 895 (this is its possible name) will be the last product from Samsung: next year Qualcomm will switch to the Chinese TSMC
La situation of microprocessors it is thorny and it would take days to eviscerate all the useful information in order to have a clear overview. This is not the place. However, the one related to the next top of the range must be connected to this discourse, that is Snapdragon 895. Based on the information that emerged from authoritative sources, this new processor could be heir to the current top of the range the latest product from the Korean Samsung
The choice apparently fell on TMSC, a Chinese brand that is undoubtedly the the world's largest manufacturer of microprocessors. The current workload weighs heavily on the company but it seems that production is continuing smoothly, only with some slowdown due exclusively to the increase in demand.
Lo Snapdragon 895 will continue to be produced with lithographic process at 5 nm and not at 4 nm as we hoped. Qualcomm will switch to TSMC's 4nm in 2022 and will announce several products built this way. There is no information on 4nm products but it is expected to be an improved version of 5nm + (N5P), which is itself an improved version of 5nm (N5) adopted by Apple's Kirin 9000 and A14 Bionic.
