Qualcomm has yet to announce the Snapdragon 8150 (aka Snapdragon 855) mobile processor, but that hasn’t stopped some early leaks. Now, today, the upcoming mobile processor’s benchmark score on AnTuTu (via Weibo) has been leaked online. The chipset has scored 362,292 points on AnTuTu, making its the first fastest mobile chipset to power Android smartphones.
On AnTuTu Benchmark database, the highest rated Android smartphone is Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which is powered by the Kirin 980 processor. The handset has an average score of 309,682. The iPhone XS comes closer with a score of 352,405, but still falls slightly behind the Snapdragon 8150.
The Snapdragon 8150’s GPU score of 156,328 is roughly around 20 per cent higher than the Snapdragon 845’s GPU score, which is a welcome move. The Weibo source also reveals that the Snapdragon 8150 will have an unusual core configuration, one with one high-performance core, three medium cores, and four-energy efficient ones. GSM Arena notes that the configuration is totally different from what we have previously heard about the chipset.
It’s too early to start speculating about the Snapdragon 8150 chipset, which is yet to be confirmed by Qualcomm. The word in the street is that Qualcomm might announce the new silicon sometime later this year, most probably at the company’s annual Snapdragon Technology Summit. From what we have heard so far, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8150 is going to be a powerful processor that could put the competition to shame.
