Speaking of the new Xperia, the small version Xperia 1 II, also known as the Xperia 5 II.
So far, there are rumors that it will be equipped with an upgraded version of SD865, SD865 +, but it is still unclear.
Meanwhile, some interesting information was posted about the CPU to be installed in the new Xperia in 2020 next year.
This is what the readers of this site found and sent to Weibo’s private post.
As the content“It is quite possible that the next Xperia version of 2021 will be equipped with SD865 or SD865 +, but I do not know if the model equipped with this chip is Xperia 1 III.”something like.
Needless to say, the SD865 / SD865 + is the current latest chip installed in most high-end models in 2020, but if this information is true, Xperia smartphones will use the same chip (or upgraded same generation chip) for two generations. That there is a possibility of doing.
Xperia certainly adopted the same chip even in different generations in the Z series and XZ series era when new generation models were released every six months, but this is just a story because it is a “half year cycle”.
It is unprecedented that not only Xperia but also other manufacturers are equipped with the same chip as the previous model one year ago, and it is suddenly unbelievable information.
Speaking of which, last year, the famous leaker Zackbucks leaked that the chip could be adopted for Xperia for two generations about the Snapdragon 865, which was not officially announced at that time. Provided information.
At this point, this meaning was not clear, and I thought that it meant that the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 II were equipped with SD865, but from this information, the 2020 version and 2021 version flagship (part of) SD865 It may have meant that / SD865 + would be used.
However, according to this poster,Even if the new Xperia with SD865 / SD865 + is released in 2021, it is unknown whether this will be the Xperia 1 III, And that.
So this model is probably not the “next generation”Derivative model of Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 IIIt may be released early next year.
Speaking of which, there was leak information that Samsung considered installing SD865 in “some models” of the Galaxy S21 series, and then eventually installed Exynos 1000, which is neither SD865 nor SD875, in all variations. (Although the authenticity is unknown)
Qualcomm’s high-end chips are increasing in price from generation to generation, which is said to be one of the reasons for the increase in the selling price of smartphones (and especially high-end).
As a result, it is said that some manufacturers are switching chips for the midrange, but this is the reason why they dare to use old high-end chips instead of the latest high-end chips. It may be as.
