Rumors that Qualcomm is preparing the flagship Snapdragon 888 Plus platform have been fully confirmed. The company officially announced this single-chip system today. As it turned out, it has two differences from the Snapdragon 888.

The first concerns the frequency of the “super core” Cortex-X1 – it increased from 2.84 to 2.995 GHz (Qualcomm rounds the frequency to 3.0 GHz). The second is the increased performance of the Qualcomm AI Engine, which is responsible for accelerating AI tasks: if in Snapdragon 888 its performance is 26 TOPS (trillions of operations per second), then in Snapdragon 888 Pro it is 32 TOPS.

Snapdragon 888 Plus will go on sale in the second half of the year. Such smartphones are already being prepared by Asus, Honor, Motorola, Vivo and Xiaomi.

Along with this, the company also introduced two new Mali GPUs with many improvements. For example, they support Variable Rate Shading (VRS) and other technologies, and offer 15% better performance and improved energy efficiency than previous models.

Arm didn’t say much about ray tracing in the Immortalis-G715. So far, no tests or full-fledged comparisons have been presented, so it is not yet possible to assess the quality of work and the number of frames per second. At the same time, ready-made solutions will have to wait until 2023. However, Arm still shared a video that demonstrates the capabilities of the new graphics solution.

Previously, a new super-powerful Cortex-X3 processor core was reported. Less productive solutions were also presented.

iPhone users who for some reason don’t like Apple smartwatches will be able to use new models based on Wear OS.

If you want to buy a smart watch for the iPhone, but not an Apple Watch.  Wear OS 3 supports iOS even though the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 doesn't

The first and so far the only watch on Wear OS 3 is the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. And it doesn’t work with iOS. But apparently this is an artificial limitation on Samsung’s part, as it has now become known that Wear OS 3 itself can work with iOS.

Qualcomm confirmed this by saying that the upcoming Montblanc Summit 3 watch will be compatible with the iPhone. This watch will be the first with Wear OS 3 after Samsung devices. True, it will be an expensive $1,290 watch, but there should be many more Wear OS 3 models on the market this year, so iPhone owners will have a choice.

Apple has not been able to create its own 5G

Apple has yet to make headway in building its own 5G cellular modem for its smartphones and tablets.

Apple has not been able to create its own 5G modem yet.  The company will continue to use Qualcomm modems in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 lines

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Qualcomm will remain the only supplier of 5G modems not only for the upcoming iPhone 14 smartphones, but also for the iPhone 15 line. That is, Apple is clearly far from the final stage in its work on its own modem .

Kuo believes that Apple will not give up on this idea and continue development, but it is not yet clear when the modem will be ready. In any case, before the launch of 6G networks, Apple has many more years. In addition, a six-year agreement between Apple and Qualcomm obliges the former to use modems by the second minimum until 2024.

It is expected that this year Apple smartphones will use the Snapdragon X65 modem, and next it will be the Snapdragon X70.
