Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 Benchmark Leak Shows Beastly Performance For 2019 Flagship Phones

Performance figures for the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 SoC for flagship Android smartphones have been dripping from a leaky faucet in recent weeks. We've seen AnTuTu figures -- which even manage to outpace the might Apple A12 Bionic -- along with impressive AI scores thanks to the dedicated neural processing unit (NPU).

Today, we're getting a look at raw CPU performance thanks to Snapdragon 8150 benchmarks that have been posted to Geekbench. WCCFTech was the first to discover the figures, which shows the Snapdragon 8150 pulling down a single-core score of 3505 and a multi-core score of 10608.

Those figures lay waste to just about any other mobile SoC for Android devices (in both single- and multi-core), but still comes up short compared to recent smartphone silicon from Apple. Compared to last year's Apple A11 Bionic chip, the Snapdragon 8150 comes up short on the single-core benchmark by about 700 points, but outpaces it by 300 points in the multi-core benchmark.

However, compared to this year's A12 Bionic processor, the Snapdragon 8150 is outgunned by over 1000 points in the single-core benchmark and by about 900 points in the multi-core benchmark. Of course, these are likely prototype reference boards that are making the rounds, so we can expect to see some improvements to these scores once OEMs begin shipping the first flagship phones with the Snapdragon 8150 early next year (we’re looking at you, Samsung Galaxy S10).

Both the Snapdragon 8150 and the A12 Bionic are manufactured on the 7nm process node and will likely be among the fastest mobile chips available for flagship smartphones for the next year.
