4 monthes ago   |   By Phandroid

The overclock likely doesn't just come from...

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 Plus aims to take mobile gaming to the next level this year

4 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

Qualcomm typically unveils only one new high-end smartphone chipset a year, but even though we still expect a proper Snapdragon 855 sequel to go official in the next few months for use on premium mobile devices in 2020, the semiconductor giant has surprisingly taken the wraps off an early upgrade of its latest flagship today.
This is obviously not called Snapdragon 865 or even 860 or 856, which makes it pretty clear off the bat that we're not looking at life-altering performance improvements here. Nonetheless, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus promises to "raise gaming to the ...

Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855 Plus: A Higher Bin SKU

4 monthes ago   |   By Anand Tech

Today Qualcomm is announcing a new small refresh of the Snapdragon 855 SoC: the new Snapdragon 855+. In the past Qualcomm had the habit of sometimes refreshing their flagship SoCs in the middle of their product life and give them a small performance boost, probably the most known chip fitting this pattern was the Snapdragon 821 from a few years ago. The S835 never got an upgrade, however the S845 last year did get a higher bin variant which ended up in a few vendor's products, including the renamed Snapdragon 850 product that featured the same specifications.
