A new message appeared on the Web about the most important component of the most productive Android flagships of the next year – the chipset. Presumably known already – and how it will be called and what the main technical characteristics will delight connoisseurs of premium smart phones. First of all, we are not talking about Snapdragon 855, since Qualcomm’s approach to the name of its flagship mobile platforms is likely to change. What opportunities will the new chipset bring to the users of the 2019 flagships?
Many of the flagship smartphones in 2019 will be based on the new top-end chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150. He received the Bluetooth certification under this name. Probably, Qualcomm changes the approach to the name of its chipsets, says Ro (Ro) on the resource pages gsmarena.com with reference to mysmartprice.com.
Specifications of the processor, which will replace Snapdragon 855?
Should Note that the somewhat unusual name of the flagship chipset was previously hinted at by the Android 9.0 Pie OS system files, which was already reported on the Web. The upcoming main component of the most impressive smartphones of the next year is already known that it will be manufactured in accordance with the 7-nanometer process. The certification listing states that the chipset will support Bluetooth 5.0, which is undoubtedly a significant advance.
The flagship chipset also supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac 2 × 2 MIMO, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy. The WCN3998 chip in this chipset is characterized by support for the new generation standard – Wi-Fi 802.11ax. The chip provides for a reduction in energy consumption by 67% (as a maximum).
As previously reported on the Web, TSMC will become the new chipset. Manufacturers of smartphones will be able to choose to use it in conjunction with the 5G-modem Snapdragon X50.
Comparison of previously appearing Geekbench listings of the most powerful chipsets showed that Snapdragon 8150 is approximately at the level of Huawei Kirin 980 and Apple A12 Bionic. The Snapdragon 8150 prototype reportedly scored 3,697 points in a single-core test and 10,469 points in a multi-core test.
However, the message in question is only one of the steps that precede the appearance of a new chip in real products that will see the light in the future. And it remains only to hope that the advantages of the chipset in question will have a noticeable positive effect on users on the performance and energy efficiency of the most powerful and expensive smart phones in 2019.
