Most of 2019’s Android flagships are possible to make use of a brand new top-end chipset from Qualcomm, and primarily based on an early benchmark it may very well be extra highly effective than any current cell chipset.
Whereas we have been anticipating Qualcomm’s subsequent flagship chip to be known as the Snapdragon 855 (up from the Snapdragon 845 within the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and different handsets), this leak lists it because the Snapdragon 8150, including credence to earlier experiences from WinFuture that the naming scheme may be modified.
Extra importantly, the benchmark – which was taken from AnTuTu and shared on Weibo (a Chinese language social community) – reveals a rating of 362,292, which is much greater than some other Android chipset end result.
Merely the perfect
The iPhone XS with its A12 Bionic chipset comes nearer, however nonetheless falls barely behind with a rating of 352,405, which is the best rating of any gadget presently proven in AnTuTu’s rankings.
