2021 Qualcomm flagship phones will be more expensive than current high-end phones

The document showed that the SoC including the upcoming Snapdragon X60 5G modem comes with a USD 250 price tag.

Reportedly, the chipset will feature the Cortex-X1 Super-Core which promises a 30 percent higher peak performance than the Cortex-A77. It will be paired with 3x Cortex-A78 cores and 4x efficiency cores.

The USD 250 price tag means that it the Snapdragon 875 will be about USD 100 more expensive than the USD 150 to 160 price of the Snapdragon 865.

This year, we saw the rise of smartphone flagships with Snapdragon 865 versus Snapdragon 855 and 855+ 2019 flagships.

Currently, one of the cheapest SD865 phones is from Xiaomi-backed POCO, the POCO F2 Pro with a PHP 26,990 starting price. Last year, the Mi 9T Pro with SD855 comes with a much affordable PHP 18,990 starting price.

If true, the major price hike for SD875 suggests that the upcoming 2021 Qualcomm flagships will be even more expensive.

The source also reported that deliberations are on-going at Xiaomi regarding the price of their future flagships.
