However, Qualcomm is confident that it will once again rely on 10-nanometer scale manufacturing. In addition, an upgraded graphics unit is practically guaranteed, while for the first time with 5G support and a correspondingly fast Snapdragon X20 LTE modem with downstream transfer rates around 1.2 gigabits per second is to be expected. In addition to smartphones and tablets, the Snapdragon 845 is also interesting in other ways, because Microsoft is probably also on board this evening.
