A San-Diago based company claimed that upcoming future Smartphones would provide improved performance in AI processing, at a rate of 26 tera operations per second (TOPS). The Snapdragon 888 Soc comes with the Snapdragon Elite Gaming Engine with updated and improved drivers and frames up to 144 Frames per second.

The Snapdragon 888 SoC includes the next-gen Spectra ISP, capable to take photos up to 2.7 gigapixels per second. Which is almost 40% faster than the previous ISP given on the Snapdragon 865 SoC.

Co-founder of Xiaomi, Lei Jun confirmed that they will be using this Snapdragon 888 SoC on their Mi 11. More highlights and announcements will be shown on the second day of the tech summit on Wednesday, 2nd December.
