According to leaked new details, Qualcomm’s new high-end Android processor called Snapdragon 875 (codenamed Lahaina) will be unveiled later this year, though it won’t be present on devices until the first quarter of 2021
New details have just been revealed regarding the upcoming high-end processor that will shape the biggest Android phone launches in 2021, which is Snapdragon 875.
- Android devices will record calls through the Phone app
- Coronavirus outbreak will drop smartphone sales to half
- Qualcomm introduced Snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460
As usual, Qualcomm will present its new Snapdragon processor aimed at the high-end of Android devices in the last quarter of the year, to start being present in devices such as the next Samsung Galaxy, in the first quarter of 2021.
Pretty sure Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 (SM8350) is called "Lahaina" internally. Named after a city on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

Roland Quandt has revealed that the impending Snapdragon 875 (SM8350) has adopted the internal codename of Lahaina, a name based on a city in Maui, one of Hawaii’s six islands.
Until now we know that the next Qualcomm processor for the high-end will be called Snapdragon 875 and will be manufactured in the 5nm process, which represents a significant advance in terms of efficiency and energy savings.
The Snapdragon 875 would feature a high-performance Cortex-X1 core architecture combination ideal for demanding gaming and application execution; another block with three Cortex-A78 cores for the rest of the processes and finally another high-efficiency block with four Cortex-A55 cores.
It remains to be seen what is the new graphics processor that accompanies this configuration of the Snapdragon 875, and which would be designed to offer much higher performance in games and applications.
Obviously the Snapdragon 875 will be compatible with the new 5G connectivity under a new modem that will succeed the current X55. All of this will be announced at a presumably online event in the last quarter of the year.
