Qualcomm announced a new mobile processor, Snapdragon 870, located between its current flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC and its previous flagship Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC.of Arrivals The appearance of the Snapdragon 870 is also quite interesting because it has a smaller upgrade than its predecessor, but this may be a selling point for a “lite” OEM that plans to launch its next-generation flagship product. To be clear, smartphone brands like to show off new technologies and new hardware on their devices, especially when it comes to their latest premium smartphones. In the launch event, you may have encountered terms such as “faster”, “more advanced” or even “better”, which fundamentally shows their commitment to provide a higher experience than traditional devices.
Therefore, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 870 For users who plan to upgrade their Snapdragon 865-enabled phones to faster and more powerful Android devices but are not too keen to pay high prices for smartphones that support Snapdragon 888, this processor is a suitable answer. Recall that Snapdragon 865 Plus (or even Snapdragon 865) is by no means a weaker chipset. It is equipped with several high-end smartphones, such as ASUS ROG Phone 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 20 (in some regions) and Lenovo Legion Phone Duel. The vanilla Snapdragon 865 feature is even available on smartphones that have been extensively reviewed (such as the Mi 10 series, OnePlus 8 series, Motorola Edge Plus, etc.).
In terms of functionality, the high-end CPU core of the Snapdragon 870 SoC has a higher clock speed of 3.2GHz, which is 100MHz faster than the old chip. Otherwise, it will retain the same three-tier CPU settings (one Cortex-A77 core at 3.2 GHz, three Cortex-A77 CPU cores at 2.4 GHz and four lightweight Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8 GHz), Adreno 650 GPU, external Snapdragon X55 modem (supports mmWave and frequencies below 6GHz), and a 7-nanometer design as Snapdragon 865 Plus.
However, although the Snapdragon 865 Plus has similar options, this will not prevent OEMs from adopting the latest chipsets on their new non-flagship devices. In the iQoo of smartphone brands Xiaomi, Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo and Vivo, new devices with Snapdragon 870 have been confirmed-but many details were not revealed. When talking about the cooperation with Qualcomm, OnePlus said: “We look forward to providing more users with lightning-like 5G speeds and ultra-smooth mobile experience.” On the other hand, Xiaomi said that its smartphones supporting Snapdragon 870 will “in 5G, cameras, artificial intelligence and other aspects will bring more surprises to consumers around the world.” The nicknames of these smartphones have not been made public, although past leaks have given us a clear understanding of next-generation devices using the latest Qualcomm processors.
