Qualcomm announced their latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform at Snapdragon Tech Summit Digital 2020. Here are the companies that will officially use this chipset.
I am sure that many other companies will use the Snapdragon 888 chipset when it is launched. As of today, I received Press Releases from the two companies supporting it. They are OPPO and realme.
OPPO has a more specific target. Their new product, the new OPPO Find X series will be launched in Q1 2021 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform.
