Qualcomm in the working process to bring its new flagship chip allegedly to be called Snapdragon 865. Recent reports pointed that new chip will arrive with a model number SM8250 and the internal codenames to become as “Kona” and “Huracan”.
Today, a device with model number “QUALCOMM Kona” surfaced on GeekBench listing, suspected to be Snapdragon 865 chipset. The listing shows 4149 points for the single-core results, which, goes up to 12915 points for the multi-core results. The listing also reveals 6GB RAM, Android 10 OS, and Octa-Core CPU with 1.8 GHz base frequency. Although the chipset in the development process, final results could be different. In the meantime, we have compared it with Snapdragon 855 Plus-powered Black Shark 2 to understand the exact gap between these two SoCs.
The Black Shark 2 Plus gets 3538 points for the single-core, while, the multi-core points further increase to 11415. Based on the points, it doesn’t seem to be gained much, but there are many more factors for a smooth experience, which we will experience once the SoC goes official. Furthermore, the Snapdragon 865 will have an integrated 5G modem to be called X55. It is speculated to bring LPDDR5X Memory and will be built on TSMS’s next-generation 7nm process.
When it comes to availability, Qualcomm has scheduled its commercial availability to happen in the first half of 2020. There is no dubiousness that next year’s most of the Flagship smartphones will be using the Snapdragon 865 chipset except Huawei and some specific Samsung flagships because they are producing their own chipsets, HiSilicon Kirin for the Huawei and Exynos for the Samsung.
