This confirms the previous leak that revealed the specs

Last month, a leak on Weibo revealed the specifications of Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 & the MediaTek Dimensity 2000 chipsets. That leak revealed that both of these chipsets have almost the same specs, and the Dimensity 2000 even gets a better CPU performance, at least on paper. Now, today, another leak on Weibo has confirmed the specs of the Snapdragon 898 as a photo of the device powered by this SOC has leaked.

As we can see, the model number of Snapdragon 898 SOC is SM8450, and there is an octa-core CPU with 8 cores. There is one main performance core clocked at 3.0GHz, which is said to be the Cortex-X2. Then there are three performance cores clocked at 2.50GHz. Finally, there are four efficiency-based cores clocked at 1.79GHz. The SOC has Adreno 730 GPU. So yes, this confirms the specifications leaked earlier.

Last year, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 launched at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit, and this time as well, we are expecting the announcement of the successor to be made at the same event. The event will start on the 30th of November and will go on till the 2nd of December. So, we still have almost a month left for the launch of Qualcomm’s flagship SOC for 2022.
