Snapdragon 898 made everything better! Less is most important

We are approaching the end of 2021, so the rumors about the new generation of Android smartphones are already in the majority. We are talking about devices like the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Xiaomi 12 Pro or of course the Oppo Find X4 Pro (the successor to what was for me the smartphone of the year, the Find the X3 Pro).

In short, any device that must have one essential component in common, the SoC, which, as you can imagine, is the sole responsibility of Qualcomm. Do you know what’s going to change with the Snapdragon 898? Apparently a lot, but the most important thing seems to have been overlooked.

So, as you can imagine, the Snapdragon 898 is expected to bring some improvements, especially in the area of ​​performance. In fact, from what we already know, the SoC will bring improvements in almost all categories, but one of the biggest flaws in the current Snapdragon 888 will remain very present according to one of the most active leakers in the industry.

We are talking about the Snapdragon 898 CPU, which according to the “Leaker” will have a tri-cluster that is very similar to the current Snapdragon 888 and will apparently suffer from overheating problems again. In other words, the only difference is in the base of the Kryo 780 cores, which supposedly bring some architectural improvements aimed at energy efficiency, which in turn could lead to an overall temperature drop. In addition, the SoC will also be based on Samsung’s 4nm process instead of the previous 5nm process. But is that enough? According to Ice_Universe, it is necessary to take a close look at the problem.

However, it is also expected that Samsung will launch its own SoC with the Exynos 2200. This in turn already has a GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture. However, the new Galaxy S22 smartphone series does not seem to want to be based on these “guys” yet … Samsung prefers to rely exclusively on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898.

In short, we have to wait and see what happens from here.
