Qualcomm has announced the launch of its first smartphone called ‘Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders.’ The company has partnered with Asus for this project. The smartphone is designed for Snapdragon Insiders which is a community of Snapdragon enthusiasts and fans who follow new developments in Qualcomm mobile processors. The gaming smartphone was created as a token of appreciation for the community.
The specifications on the new phone are as follows: Snapdragon 888 chip, 16GB RAM, and a 144Hz AMOLED display. The Snapdragon smartphone was designed for customers who are aware of what specifications they need to have on their phones.
However, the company did not include the Snapdragon 888 Plus processor which was recently launched. The company commented stating that the development for the smartphone began last year while the latest processor was just released early this year. However, there isn’t much difference between the original and the Plus processor.
