The $1,500 phone will be more broadly available later in the year.
Qualcomm and Asus are releasing a Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders, a 5G and Wi-Fi 6E-compatible phone for the Insiders program, which has around 1.6 million members worldwide. The phone will be available for everyone after Insiders get early access.
The $1,500 phone will include a set of Master & Dynamic earbuds, and run on Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 888 5G chipset with a 2.84GHz octa-core processor and the Adreno 660 GPU. The phone will also include an 8K video camera.
Qualcomm didn't immediately respond to a request for further comment.
