These Are First Two Smartphones To Feature New Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC

These two smartphones will be the first two to come with the new Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC, alongside other advanced specs.

Yesterday (9/7), Qualcomm has officially launched its latest processor, called Snapdragon 865+. This is a high-end chipset and arrives as an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 865 chip that was released late last year.

In addition to introducing new features and performance of the Snapdragon 865 Plus, Qualcomm also revealed the names of the first two smartphones that will use this chipset, namely the ASUS ROG Phone 3 and the Lenovo Legion. It is easy to see that both are gaming smartphones, so it is not surprising that they are equipped with the latest processors from Qualcomm.

As expected, ROG Phone 3 will be released on July 22nd. Like its predecessor, the next ASUS gaming smartphone will come with impressive specs to attract gamers - those looking for a smartphone with the strongest hardware configuration.

Besides the Snapdragon 865 Plus, the ROG Phone 3 is also said to have up to 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, and at least a 120Hz display. These will make it one of the most powerful Android flagships of 2020.

Although the camera is not a very important element on gaming smartphones, ROG Phone 3 is rumored to have a much better camera setup than its predecessor, including a 64MP main sensor.

Previous leaks have suggested that the phone will support 90W fast charging, two USB-C ports, a 5,000mAh battery, and a pop-up selfie camera on the side.

Moreover, Lenovo Legion is also expected to come with a Full-HD display with a 140Hz refresh rate and a 64MP main camera on the rear. It is expected to launch in September and come with Android 10-based ZUI 12 out of the box.
