OnePlus 9T, Xiaomi Mi 11T and more could use this new super-powerful chipset

While most top-end Android phones from the first half of 2021 have used the Snapdragon 888 chipset from Qualcomm, a new Plus version of that processor has been launched, and we could see it in the likes of the Xiaomi Mi 11T and OnePlus 9T.

This is the Snapdragon 888 Plus, which is – as the name suggests – a tweaked version of that aforementioned chipset that was used in the OnePlus 9 and Xiaomi Mi 11 (and more phones like the Oppo Find X3 Pro and Realme GT). Qualcomm announced the new chipset via a post on its blog.
