The flagship smartphones of 2021 will not be much faster

A new Snapdragon 875 processor is expected to be unveiled in December. The platform’s performance tests are already available online. Apparently, the flagship smartphones of 2021 will not be much faster than today. Of course, the Snapdragon 875 outperforms its Snapdragon 865 predecessor in both single-core and multi-core tests. In the first case, the novelty scored 4,900 points, and in the second – 14,000 points. For comparison: in Snapdragon 865 the results are 4300 and 13 000 respectively. In general, the gap is small. And the Apple A13 Bionic processor, which is installed in the iPhone 11, tests show 5472 points and 13 769 points, respectively. That is, the Snapdragon 875 could not even overtake the platform of modern iPhones.

It is worth noting that now the flagship processors on Android are made, in fact, only Qualcomm. Huawei has selected chip suppliers, and MediaTek does not create processors of the same level. There is, of course, Samsung with the Exynos platform, but the company’s flagship smartphones still come in two versions, one of which runs on the same Snapdragon.
