Qualcomm is about to launch the Snapdragon 875 chipset in December, and we expect a “lite” version of the flagship platform to tag along. It would be the logical successor of the Snapdragon 765 series and would act as a more affordable chip that can offer pretty similar performance.

The leakster that goes by the (machine-translated) name Digital Chat Station revealed Oppo is developing a smartphone that will have that new chip with a working name Snapdragon 870.

The new chipset by Qualcomm will be able to reach 3.2 GHz speed of the CPU, and we assume this will be only one super-powerful core and not a cluster of units. Theoretically, the leakster says it will be more powerful than the Snapdragon 865 but still won’t be a match in raw performance to the SD875.

During the weekend we posted our hot take on flagship chipsets – you don’t need the latest and greatest platform for basic everyday use – it should stick to people willing to shed over $1000 for a device and who are power users, getting everything done on their phone.

It appears that the Snapdragon 870 (if real at all) is a chipset for exactly this type of scenario – it will offer performance and proper battery life without going overboard with the price tag.
