Later this year, Qualcomm will launch the successor to its more powerful Snapdragon 855 processor. We've already seen some leaks from the SM8250, which is the codename for the next Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. The company has already announced that the next Snapdragon Mobile Platform will come with an integrated 5G modem.

Apart from the built-in 5G modem, Qualcomm has not disclosed any other details about its next flagship chipset.

However, the latest @rquandt tweet indicates that the next Snapdragon chipset will come with an external 5G modem.

If this turns out to be true, we may see two variants of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 mobile platform.

While the first Snapdragon 865 smartphones will not be launched until early 2020, the rollout of 5G networks will still be in its initial phase. While several 5G smartphones have already been announced, the number of commercially available devices is very small.

With the integrated 5G modem, manufacturers will have extra space to add a slightly larger battery, a better cooling system or anything else.

The Snapdragon 865 with integrated 5G modem should be the chipset of choice for markets such as the United States and South Korea, where adoption of 5G will be higher. In other countries where penetration will be lower, manufacturers will be able to launch their flagship smartphones with the latest Snapdragon mobile platform without the cheaper 5G modem.

Just as Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 has the Snapdraong X50 5G modem, the Snapdragon 865 with integrated 5G will use the latest Snapdragon X55 5G modem.

Qualcomm has already confirmed that the next Snapdragon 5G Mobile Platform will use the 2nd generation sub-6 GHz and mmWave antenna modules. It will also feature the new PowerSave 5G technology that increases the battery life of 5G smartphones.
