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... Read more...
When it comes to modern smartphones, AI performance is becoming increasingly more relevant to everyday tasks. In addition to offloading tasks usually handled by the main processor, dedicated AI engines are empowering computational photography allowing today’s flagship phones to capture amazing images.  To that end, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8150 is shaping up to be an AI powerhouse, at least according to leaked numbers that have shown up at AI-Benchmark. The AI-Benchmark site notes the benchmark consists of 9 Computer Vision AI tasks performed by 9 separate Neural Networks that are running on smartphones currently. The tasks include Object Recognition and Classification,... Read more...
The chip wars are heating up and there is evidence to suggest that Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 8150 processor is allegedly quite the fire breathing part. Leaked benchmarks purportedly showing how the Snapdragon 8150 performs in AnTuTu, a benchmark we use ourselves in our smartphone reviews, indicate it will give Apple and its mighty Bionic A12 chip a run for its money. If the benchmarks are real, of course. No small feat, Apple bills the Bionic A12 found in the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max as "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone," and with good reason—it's a capable slice of silicon. AnTuTu's official benchmark database shows the iPhone XS leading the pack with an overall... Read more...
If you were to gut just about any flagship Android phone, you would find Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC) sitting inside. It's still the top mobile part in Qualcomm's stable. That will change with the introduction of the Snapdragon 8150, which apparently has not been certified by SIG Labs for Bluetooth connectivity. There are a few things to unpack here, starting with the name. Qualcomm's past naming convention suggests its next flagship mobile will be called Snapdragon 855. That might be still be true, though more recently it was reported it will instead be called Snapdragon 8150 as part of a rebranding effort. That is reinforced by its Bluetooth certification, which lists the... Read more...
Qualcomm is being light on details, but it today announced that its next-generation Snapdragon Mobile Platform is now shipping to customers. We had heard earlier this year that the chip was in production, so it makes sense that the first samples would be heading out so partners could qualify the chip for use in their upcoming products. The next-generation SoC is built on a 7nm process after staying at 10nm for two generations (Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 845). It was initially reported that the chip would carry the designation Snapdragon 855, but a recent report suggests that it will instead be called the Snapdragon 8150. Qualcomm is reportedly switching up its naming scheme to differentiate... Read more...
While Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 may be the "new hotness" for 2018 smartphones, many are already turning their attention to the next chip in the pipeline. Up until this point, it's been rumored that the next entry into the flagship SoC line would be the Snapdragon 855. However, we're now learning this might not be the case after all and that Qualcomm is adopting a new naming scheme. While the chip still carries the codename "Hana", WinFuture is reporting that it will actually be called Snapdragon 8150 when it first hits smartphones in early 2019. So why the name change? Well, it's surmised that Qualcomm is switching things up to avoid confusion with Snapdragon SoCs designed for Always... Read more...
