5G is becoming the centre play for Qualcomm this year with the chipmaker taking its 5G modems beyond the flagship level. We saw that happen with the Snapdragon 765 late last year, and now the Snapdragon 6-series will also reportedly include a 5G SoC.

Details about an sm6350 SoC leaked courtesy noted Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo which highlights a 5G chip inside. Notably, the chip could be a big push towards the China market where 5G connectivity is live and 5G smartphones are launching left, right and centre.

According to the tipster, the leaked 6-series Snapdragon SoC will feature an octa-core CPU design with two large cores clocked at 2.25GHz and six efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The chipset will feature the Adreno 615 GPU which also features in the Snapdragon 670. The chip is expected to launch in Q2 2020 and will sport a 5G modem.

The tipster also claimed Qualcomm is not alone in making low-end 5G chipsets. MediaTek and Huawei are also expected to announce similar mid-range 5G chipsets. The post included the name of MT6853 5G SoC and the Kirin 720 5G, which are also expected to be announced soon.

In other Qualcomm news, the OnePlus Z could also be coming with a Qualcomm processor. You can read more about that story here
