The biggest and baddest smartphone SoC on the market in Android land is no doubt the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Based on 7nm tech, the 8-core SoC comes mandatorily paired with the discrete Snapdragon X55 5G modem and powers current flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S20 family and the OnePlus 8 Series.

If you own an Android phone, there is a high chance it is rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor of some kind inside. Sometime in the not-too-distant future, Qualcomm will unleash a new flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 865, yet there is already talk of what comes after.
