Smartphone companies don’t want the expensive Snapdragon 865

Qualcomm made the decision to base all sales on its new flagship system with the Snapdragon 865. The decision to do this utilizing the external X55 5G modem may discourage many smartphone designers. Qualcomm made a surprising decision to leave the integrated modem behind, thus causing many consumers to be surprised. Being that this is the company that decided to increase energy efficiency in its new designs. Along with this, Qualcomm wanted to free up extra space in their smartphones by building the modem right into the processor.

Google, Nokia, LG, and others have decided they don’t want to invest in the new and expensive processor. Within the last few years, many companies have been promoting the 5G network. They also introduced modems in many mid-range processors. But, at the same time, those that want to use the new chip need to pay for the additional modem that is sold separately, thus causing most companies to avoid investing in the new chip.

This affects more, in particular, the new upcoming phones. These phones include the LG G9 ThinQ along with the HMD and Nokia 8.3. And least not forget the upcoming future phones from Google, the Pixel 5, and 5 XL. Meanwhile, Qualcomm has already begun preparations for the next modem, the X60.
