Qualcomm is all set to unveil the latest-gen Snapdragon chip at the upcoming annual Tech Summit next month. But as it happens with almost every company nowadays, leaksters are always faster at revealing the details.
The expected specs of the Snapdragon 865 SoC have leaked out on the internet via the Chinese leakster @Digital Chat Station (via GizmoChina). If these are to be believed, the octa-core chip will follow the 3 CPU design like its predecessors SD855 and SD855+.
SD865 is expected to pack 1 x Cortex-A77 2.84Gz Gold Prime core, 2 x Cortez-A77 @ 2.42GHz Gold cores, and 4 x Cortex-A55 @ 1.8GHz low-powered Silver cores. An Adreno 650 chip will handle the graphics department, and the SD865 is also expected to come fitted with a 5G modem as well.
The leak further reveals that the unreleased Snapdragon 865 could be around 20% faster in CPU performance, and between 17-20% faster in GPU performance.
Here, we should note that Qualcomm has maintained the same clock speed for the performance cores, but the jump from Cortex A76 (on the SD855) to Cortex A77 is going to make all the difference. Anyway, it’s still a leak and things could change at the launch event.
Snapdragon 865 is definitely going to be the powerhouse for the many flagships releasing in 2020. It’s more than expected that Samsung Galaxy S11 and OnePlus 8 would be among those getting a piece of the cake.
