A few weeks ago, Qualcomm unveiled its latest Snapdragon 835 chipset for 2017. Which is reportedly going to be manufactured by Samsung at 10nm process and featuring quick charge 4.0. As it’s just at the developmental phase the result of the final product will be different. Similarly, from various reports, it’s expected as if the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xiaomi Mi 6 would be the first smartphones to use the Snapdragon 835 chipset.
Today some of the benchmarks results pop up which are not yet in the benchmark database. The benchmarks results are of an unknown device which has 5.9″ Quad HD display, 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage, a 20MP rear camera which is capable of taking 4k videos, a 12MP front camera which is also capable of recording 4k videos, the device seems to be running on Android Nougat and features Snapdragon 835 chipset. From the data revealed it seems as the octa-core processor which is clocked at 2.2Ghz.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 uses the new Adreno 540 GPU which is 30% more efficient in terms of graphics performance compared to its predecessor. The benchmark number shows that it outperforms not only all current Android players but also the iPhone 7 plus. In some GPU tests which include Manhattan 3.1, it scores 2571 frames (45.1 Fps). In the Manhattan test, GPU scored 3839 frames(61.9 Fps) and in the T-Rex test, the snapdragon 835 achieved 6435 frames (115.2 Fps). The Snapdragon 835 easily outperforms when compared to Kirin 960 chipset. Besides that these tests were done on off-screen with standardized 1080p resolution but with on-screen and QHD resolution these screen frames(FPS) would gradually decrease.
So, it’s worth mentioning that Snapdragon 835 in the development unit performs very well. As it’s not the final product the results would be different in the final release. As there is an increase in GPU performance and a decrease in power consumption due to the 10nm process it’s a good indication of what we could expect in the upcoming year.
