According to reports, the inside of the chipset is called "Project Kona." Kona is the name of an area on the Hawaiian Islands. Even now 855 is also known as HANA, which is also a place in Hawaii. Qualcomm has some connection with Hawaii, which is usually hosted here at the Technology Summit.
The report did not reveal any details about the clock speed or the new chipset architecture. However, a new feature of Snapdragon 865 is support for faster memory. According to the source, the new chipset will support LPDDR5 memory. The current Snapdragon 800 series processors support LPDDR4 memory, which means the new chipset will be faster or more expensive. The company has tested samples of some new chipsets internally.
In addition, Qualcomm is also developing a new chip codenamed "Huracan." The chipset model is SDM55, using the same development test platform as the Snapdragon 865. This may be the 5G modem of the new chipset. There are rumors that Qualcomm will embed a 5G modem into the chipset, but this may not be the case. Instead, it can release non-5G versions of the Snapdragon 865 chipset by not including a 5G modem.
Snapdragon 865 will definitely have a built-in 64-bit processor, but we are not sure about its specific architecture. Snapdragon 855 is currently manufactured on a 7nm process, so Qualcomm may continue to use the same manufacturing method. However, TSMC may also use the 5nm process to produce the Snapdragon 865.
