Support for 100W fast charging will cost you

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn claiming that the Snapdragon 875 will be significantly more expensive than its already pricey predecessor.

Leakster Digital Chat Station claims that the full package - including the hardware needed for wireless connectivity - will cost $250, up from $150-160 for the Snapdragon 865. The chip alone will go for $130 vs $80 for the 865.

A key selling point of the Snapdragon 875 will be its support for 100W fast charging, which means that gaming phones with large batteries will not have much downtime between gaming sessions.

Qualcomm is expected to introduce the 875 in December and to have it ready for phones in Q1 next year. The chip is reportedly already being mass produced by TSMC on a 5nm node. It may use the new Cortex-X1 as its prime core, plus three Cortex-A77 for the big cores.

Qualcomm is expected to release a Snapdragon 865+ next month. It will increase its prime core to 3.09 GHz, quite a boost compared to the 2.84 GHz clock speed of the current S865 chips.
