Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 has been already announced a few weeks ago, and it is the flagship chip of the American Chip maker as we step closer to 2018. This new high-end silicon will be running under the Hood of all major Android flagships in 2018, and there’s a list of devices leaked on Weibo, which mentions all the possible devices that will use the Snapdragon 845. And not only that we also got a sneak peek into various variants of the flagships that we’ll be seeing next year.

  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
  • LG G7/G7 Plus
  • Moto Z 2019
  • HTC U12/ U12 Plus
  • LG V40
  • Galaxy Note 9
  • Google Pixel 3 XL
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
  • Xiaomi Mi 7
  • Xperia XZ 2
  • Xperia XZ Pro-A
  • Samsung W2019 Probably that luxury Flip phone
  • OnePlus 6 and 6T
  • And other devices, from Chinese OEM possibly from Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo.

Starting with the Samsung which is reported to have three variants the standard Galaxy S9, the plus variant and a mini variant, and in this list, the mini option is missing, which means it will be using a lower tier SoC; well Note nine is also mentioned. Next up is very interesting the device is referred as Moto Z 2019, while the current one is the 2017 edition, so a year skip means that Motorola might be using something else? No so, because the Moto Z 2017 which was launched in China is named as Moto Z 2018, so this should mean that the 2019 variant is the 2018 version only.

Furthermore, we have the HTC U12 as well as a Plus variant of the device, OnePlus 6, and the OnePlus 6T is also here, along with LG’s top-tier Android devices. Other names are mentioned in Chinese, so we guess where it says MiX 3 belongs to Xiaomi and so is the 4th numbered device, which is probably the  Xiaomi Mi 7. Google’s Pixel 3Xl is present, but the standard variant is not. If you figured out any other devices in that list, do comment down their names.
