The Snapdragon 865 is a chipset that does not have a directly built-in 5G modem. The hardware vendor decided to offer manufacturers its new SoC in conjunction with the 5G modem external Snapdragon X55 in order to offer a more powerful product. This means that any manufacturer that wants to incorporate the Snapdragon 865 you must purchase it in a combo with the modemThey are not offered separately.
There may be 4G phones with the Snapdragon 865
Therefore, it was thought that every phone with the S865 is necessarily compatible with 5G, but it is not. iQOO has shown that you can have a 4G phone powered by Snapdragon 865 processor. The iQOO 3 has a 4G version powered by Qualcomm's flagship processor. The explanation presented is that 5G support was simply disabled on the device. It remains to be seen whether other manufacturers will do the same to provide an option for markets where 5G is not yet available, and thus be able to make its price a little more affordable as well.
The OnePlus 8 series will be the first of the manufacturer to count with support for 5G networks. In addition, they are also expected to be the first OnePlus to support wireless charging. Finally, the devices will also come with AMOLED perforated screens and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
