According to the information received from the authoritative source Sleepy Kuma, the future SOC Snapdragon 875 from Qualcomm could be as much as $ 100 more expensive than the current top-end creation of the company Snapdragon 865.
While the Snapdragon 865 SOC costs $ 150-160 for smartphone makers, the Snapdragon 875 will cost a crazy $ 250 (rumored).
According to Sleepy Kuma, Xiaomi is currently discussing how much their next flagship should cost, and given the extremely high cost of the Snapdragon 875 chip, the price of a top-end product based on it could be $ 100-200 more than the current flagship.
If these rumors are confirmed, then in 2021 we can expect an increase in the price of flagship smartphones on Android. However, this event is likely to make the 2020 lineup more profitable and attractive in terms of price/performance.
