In a surprise announcement, Qualcomm have officially announced that they will holding a new Snapdragon product launch conference at 10:00am on June 17, Beijing time.
At the press conference, Qualcomm President An Meng, Qualcomm Global Vice President Hou Mingjuan and other company executives will share the latest developments from the company, as well as tease us with future products coming soon.
The announcement makes a big note of 5G development within the telecommunications industry, so we can expect to see that be a big part of the conference. Think things like new and better 5G integration and performance for upcoming Snapdragon SoCs.
As for what else we’re likely to see, we expect some new mid-range smartphone SoCs and the flagship Snapdragon 875, as well as some Snapdragon laptop CPUs. Qualcomm have been fairly quiet on the laptop front, and it’s about time they made a bigger splash in the market.
Although we can speculate endlessly about what products we’ll see there, we’ll still need to wait for June 17 to find out what’s coming. We’re hoping to see something exciting, and not just some simple throwaway event for small announcements.
