Android flagships have been nearly ridiculously priced this year, with traditionally affordable premium phones from Xiaomi and OnePlus all seeing significant jumps in prices, relative to their predecessors. Based on the report, the "set" version of the Snapdragon 875 will cost $250, versus the Snapdragon 865 which is said to cost $150, meaning it'll be more expensive by $100. The chip alone will go for $130 vs $80 for the 865. The Snapdragon 875 will also be made by TSMC but the foundry will be using its 5nm process for the first time on a Snapdragon chipset. That is important since the higher the number of transistors inside a chip, the more powerful and energy-efficient it is.
The source reports that deliberations are on-going at Xiaomi regarding the price of their future flagships. This is one of the choices that Android phone manufacturers have. The increase in prices has also been pushing up the cost of flagship phones for end-consumers. However, OEMs won't have the option to buy the modem from another vendor.
