The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 will be the processor who will bring life to Android devices next year and has just passed which GeekBench offers data on its capacity. It is expected that the chip will be announced in December of the same year, assuring the world its official name since Qualcomm will not change the name of its processors.
As reported from PCMag, The successor to the Snapdragon 845 processor will not be called 8150, it's just the code name. So far, the company's future chip is listed as SM8150, but it's easy internal identification name and it does not correspond to the name with which it will be placed on the market.
The truth is that it would not be the first time that Qualcomm changed its name to its own line of processors, which previously consisted of S1, S2, S3 and S4 and In 2013, the series was changed to 200, 400, 600, 700 and 800. The official name of the new processor is not known at this time, but it is likely that it will continue with the current numbering, so it can be called the Snapdragon 855.
The new processor could start a new series with 5
Rumors also claim that the company could start a completely new sequence of names and start a new series with 5, as it will be the first chip with an integrated 5G modem (X50) and maybe it ends up calling the Snapdragon 5000. Changes that could also occur due to the unusual configuration of three central clusters that recently appeared in some leakage conditions.
Qualcomm will announce its new processor, which will be part of the first 5G phones, next week, an annual three-day event scheduled for December 4th. What will be announced at this moment is the actual name of the processor and its properties, leaving behind the name of the Snapdragon 8150 code.
Right now, we have to wait for the company to officially announce the upcoming processor to find out all its features and official name, but it's clear that Qualcomm will continue or start a new series of titles, but it will not change them.
