Snapdragon 888 overheating

Fred Chen


At the beginning of December last year, Qualcomm announced the launch of the high-end flagship processor "Snapdragon 888," emphasizing the performance of the top specifications, using Samsung's 5nm process production.

However, the first Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphones to introduce the "Snapdragon 888" processor experienced many overheated problems and power consumption issues. Qualcomm then launched the 7nm "Snapdragon 870", to make up for the correction of the shortcomings of "Snapdragon 888." It was then adopted by OPPO, OnePlus, Xiaomi, iQOO, Motorola and other brand mobile phones in the first quarter of this year.

From chip gate to SD888, it seems Samsung processes have a long history of poor power consumption. What could be the possible causes?
