Qualcomm usually unveils its flagship 800-series chipset in December, so this time as well, it is expected that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 will be announced next month. While there is still a month left for the expected unveiling, we now have got the specifications of the Snapdragon 875 that were shared by Digital Chat Station, a very reliable source on Weibo. Recently, we also got the Master Lu benchmark score of the Snapdragon 875, which revealed that the chipset beats the Kirin 9000 when it comes to the CPU performance.
Coming to the leaked specifications, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 is built on the 5nm process just like the A14 Bionic & the Kirin 9000. The CPU architecture remains the same as the previous generation, i.e., 1+3+4. In fact, the clock speeds remain unchanged as well. So there is one core clocked at 2.48Ghz, three cores clocked at 2.42GHz & finally four cores clocked at 1.8GHz. We don’t yet have any confirmation on the type of CPU Core, but rumours suggest the Cortex-X1 is the main core here which offers up to 30% & 23% higher peak performance than the Cortex-A77 & A78 respectively.
There is the Adreno 660 GPU this time & as per Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 875 offers better low-power consumption.
A few days ago, the alleged AnTuTu Benchmark score of Snapdragon 875 (847,868) surfaced as well, which is 25% better than what the Snapdragon 865 Plus scores (629,245). We cannot say if the AnTuTu Score is legit but in case it is, the Snapdragon 875 absolutely blows every flagship chipset currently in the market whether it is the Apple’s A14 Bionic or the Kirin 9000 by Huawei.
It is being reported by many sources that the Xiaomi’s Mi 11 is going to be one of the first smartphones to launch with the Snapdragon 875 chipset. But since the Galaxy S21 series is coming in January next year, it is hard to say exactly which phone would be the first to launch with Qualcomm Snapdragon 875.
