Qualcomm surprised the world with its Snapdragon 888, not only because of the incorporation of the X1 core customized by the company itself, but also because of the strange jump in nomenclature, being the main successor to the Snapdragon 865. As leaked WinFuture this processor will not be alone, there will be a Snapdragon 870.
This processor will be oriented to the high end “low cost”. That is, some proposals from manufacturers such as Xiaomi or OnePlus to compete in the high-end, but far from the more than a thousand euros that some of the current proposals in traditional brands cost. It is an improved version compared to the Snapdragon 865, with several elements shared with its predecessor.
This will be the Snapdragon 870, according to WinFuture
The Snapdragon 870 will be an improved version of the 865, but without as much power as the 888. In this case the CPU is the same, with a small overclock from 3.1GHz to 3.2GHz. Similarly, the GPU is the Adreno 650, the same as the Snapdragon 865. The modem, the Snapdragon X55 5G, is also identical.
Thanks to this modem the 870 will be compatible with 5G in sub-6GHz and mmWave networks, the full spectrum. As you can appreciate, it’s just a Snapdragon 865 with a little higher clock frequency, depending on the filtration.
It remains to be seen if there are improvements in image processing, artificial intelligence and support for certain types of hardware but, since CPU and GPU are identical, few changes can be expected in this future processor, if this information is confirmed. WinFuture points to the first models with this phone will come out this quarter, at the hands of manufacturers such as OnePlus, OPPO, Motorola, Xiaomi and IQOO.
