It has not yet been officially presented but we can already advance all the features of the Snapdragon 855 that will star in next year’s range stops. From the (American model) to the Xiaomi Mi 9 , passing through terminals such as the OnePlus 7 or the LG G8 ThinQ , it is expected that the smartphones that supply the market next year will have the latest processor manufactured by Qualcomm in your insides
There are still a few hours for the chip to see the light officially, but we already know all the specifications of which aims to become the best mobile processor of the year, as long as allow it. Finally it seems that the smartphone will be called Snapdragon 855 and not Snapdragon 8150 , as it seemed that it would be until a few hours ago. The reason is none other than following the line marked by the previous 835 and 845.
Precisely to face the Huawei chip, Qualcomm’s new processor has an additional neural processing unit that adds new calculation functions to improve the AI of the mobiles where this CPU is housed. As for the purely technical characteristics , we have the following:
- TSMC manufacturing process of 7 nm TSMC
- Configuration of 4 cores at 1.8 GHz + 2 at 2.4 GHz + 1 core at 2.8 GHz
- Adreno 640 GPU with optimizations “Snapdragon Elite Gaming”
- X50 5G Modem Snapdragon X24 LTE + Modem Snapdragon X50 5G
- 3D ultrasonic sensor
The four low-profile 1.8 GHz cores will take care of everyday tasks, while the three that reach speeds of 2.4 GHz are used in the execution of heavy tasks. To this is added an extra core that enhances the operation of the chip up to 2.84 GHz. All accompanied by an Adreno 640 GPU that has the new technology of the brand “Snapdragon Elite Gaming” designed to optimize the operation of GPU turbo style games.
Beyond these expected technical improvements, perhaps the most surprising thing about Qualcomm’s first 7 nm chip is that the Snapdragon 855 is equipped with two modems. On the one hand we have the classic X24 for the current standard of the 4G LTE network while on the other hand we have an X50 that can take advantage of the deployment of the 5G.
It is expected that all these features of the Snapdragon 855 become official throughout the day, confirming all the secrets of the processor.
