It is not a top of the range. This title belongs to the Snapdragon 888 in 2021. Even so, the new Snapdragon 870 will be one of the best processors on the market this year, being a slightly more powerful version of the Snapdragon 865.
Surprising the market, the North American Qualcomm today presents (19) a new processor for high-end mobile devices. It can be had as a double reinforced Snapdragon 865, not rivaling the Snapdragon 888.
Qualcomm unveiled the new Snapdragon 870
North American Qualcomm announced its latest mobile processor. It’s called Snapdragon 870 and emerges as a successor to the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus chips, both chips launched in 2020.
The new SoC is virtually the same as the two predecessors in the core architecture with the Kryo 585 CPU, as well as the graphics or GPU cores, the Adreno 650. It is, therefore, an older generation processor that uses the current model from last year.
The new chip – Snapdragon 870 – has a maximum frequency of 3.2 GHz in the high performance core. IT’S 10% more powerful than the original SD 865 whose maximum frequency reaches 2.84 GHz. The SD 865 Plus has a maximum frequency of 3.1 GHz, so the new SoC is about 3% more powerful than its direct predecessor. Marginal improvements in processing power.
The Snapdragon 870 consists of eight processing cores. It has a high-performance core with a maximum frequency of 3.2 Ghz, three cores with a maximum frequency of 2.42 GHz and, finally, four Cortex A55 cores at 1.80 GHz.
Why the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870
The American giant justifies the launch of the new processor with market forces. According to the same, the new SoC appears to respond to the great demand from the manufacturers that want to reinforce this market segment.
The Snapdragon 870 is designed for companies that want to put an excellent smartphone on the market, but not necessarily the best in all aspects. “Almost high” range mobile devices, without reaching premium.
In practice, we will see the Snapdragon 870 on smartphones whose selling price should start at 600 to 800 euros, with large margins for success, especially in excess.
The new “almost” high-end processor
For manufacturers that want to use this high-end SoC there are also real performance improvements. Something that they can naturally use as a real advantage for users, something that they can use in the marketing department.
In other words, the Snapdragon 870 has real improvements over the “old” processors from 2020 like the two generations of the Snapdragon 865.
Qualcomm expects the first smartphones equipped with the Snapdragon 870 to reach the market during the first quarter of 2021. Among the first manufacturers to use the new SoC we have the Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo and Xiaomi.
