Qualcomm Just unveiled a New Member of the Flagship Snapdragon-800 Series named Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. That is the Boosted version already boosted Snapdragon 865 Plus. Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Specification sheet world highest Mobile Processor CPU clocked speed. Like Snapdragon 888 it will not comes with all the next-generation innovative hardware, but it is still a powerful Mobile Processor that going to targeted budget flagship smartphones in 2021.
Because of this Processor companies like Motorola, iQOO, OnePlus, OPPO, and Xiaomi will launch budget flagship smartphones that they forget in 2020. To be clear that doesn’t mean you will see flagship killer smartphones like Poco F1 or OnePlus One. When it comes to performance changes we will also be going to check Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Antutu score and Geekbench Score for better understanding.
Smartphone with Snapdragon 870 will comes in the first quarter of 2021 with the top Android manufacturer. Let’s check out Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Specification, benchmark, and key features. Also, check its Ranking in the Best mobile processor list 2021.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Specification sheet is a lot like Snapdragon 865 Plus but there is still some difference between them. Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 comes with ARM based octa-core Kryo 585 CPU. It Doesn’t have ARM fastest X1 Prime core or A-78 insist that Qualcomm is using last year’s A-77 Primary core that is clocked 3.2 GHz and able to beat Kirin 9000 3.12 GHz Performance score and reclaim the crown. This Cloaked speed is higher than Snapdragon 865 Plus 3.1 GHz, Snapdragon 865 2.94 GHz, and the latest Snapdragon 888 2.84 GHz. So it doesn’t mean it is powerful than Snapdragon 888.
Snapdragon 870 Kryo 585 based octa-core CPU is 1x Cortex-A77 @ 3.2 GHz, 3x Cortex-A77 @ 2.42 GHz, 4x Cortex-A55 @ 1.8 GHz. Despite this is the new Mobile Processor launched in 2021, it is still based on a 7nm Architecture.
Qualcomm always the leader of GPU in the Android Market with its custom Adreno GPU. So the new Processor comes with last year’s Adreno 650 GPU. That Support Vulkan® 1.1 API, API Support: OpenGL® ES 3.2, OpenCL™ 2.0 FP. It also supports HDR gaming (10-bit color depth, Rec. 2020 color gamut) and HDR Playback Codec support for HDR10+, HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision.
Snapdragon 870 Specification Sheet has 5th Generation Qualcomm® Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine that has Hexagon™ 698 with Hexagon Tensor Accelerator, Vector eXtensions, and Hexagon Scalar Accelerator. Because of this they able to achieve 15 TOPS performance like last year’s processor with incredible efficiency.
Qualcomm® Sensing Hub has an Ultra-low-power hub for audio, voice, and sensors, Supports AI algorithms at low power, Support for fusing contextual data streams including sensors, audio, and voice, Supports multiple voice assistants, Multi-mic far-field detection, and echo cancellation.
It is Comes with Qualcomm Spectra 480 Image Signal Processor that supports a 200MP Single camera and a Dual camera up to 25 MP. It is also able to 4K Video Capture @120 FPS, 8K Video Capture @ 30 FPS, and Slow-mo video capture at 720p @ 960 FPS. It also supports Video recording in HDR10+, HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision.
On-Device Display Support:
• 4K @ 60 Hz
• QHD+ @ 144 Hz
• Maximum External Display Support: up to 4K @ 60 Hz
• 10-bit color depth, Rec. 2020 color gamut
• HDR10 and HDR10+ CPU
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Specification Sheet has Snapdragon™ X55 5G Modem-RF system. That supports 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz, standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes, FDD, TDD. This Modem able to achieve peak download speeds up to 7.5 Gbps and upload speed 3 Gbps. It also supports Global 5G multi-SIM.
It is comes with FastConnect 6800 Subsystem that support Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), 802.11ac Wave 2, 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.2. It supports Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS, Dual-frequency GNSS, NavIC enabled, GPS, GNSS, QZSS, SBAS GPU.
There is a big Mobile Gaming market in the world with over 2.6 Billion gamers in the world and this market grows very fast. Qualcomm also committed to gives users a smooth Mobile game experience with the support of high 144fps, 10-bit color depth and 2020 color gamut, and true HDR gaming with its powerful GPU.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Specification Sheet is very strong and it has packed with a powerful CPU, GPU. To find out how powerful is this Processor s we will be going to run some Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Benchmark test on Antutu and Geekbench Platform. Here is Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Benchmark score
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Antutu Score is as usual going to very high like its predecessor Snapdragon 865 Plus has because of new Powerful CPU. Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Antutu Score is 647784.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Geekbench Score is for Single Core is 963 and Multi-Core Score 3394
For Now, they are no Smartphone With Snapdragon 870 5G. But Qualcomm confirms first Smartphone With Snapdragon 870 5G will be available in Q1 2021 from Motorola, iQOO, OnePlus, OPPO, and Xiaomi.
