Qualcomm has made a schedule with its last few flagship Snapdragon chipsets. The standard version is released in December while a Plus model usually arrives later in July. While are getting closer to the launch of a new chipset believed to be the Snapdragon 888+ and it appeared in a Geekbench listing.
The Snapdragon 888+ will be the next chipset that will be the successor to the vanilla 888. It is the secondary model before the next big flagship. Now recently, as the launch of the 888+ is near it has appeared on a Geekbech listing.
Twitter user Abhishek Yadav stumbled upon the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ on the benchmarking platform. It bears the same codename as its non-Plus sibling (Lahaina). The big change compared to the regular SD 888 is the overclocked X1 performance core which goes at 3.0Ghz compared to 2.84Ghz on the old model. The test reveals four low-power A55 cores running at 1.8GHz and three additional Cortex-A78 clusters running at 2.4Ghz. Along with this, the SD 888+ scored 1,171 single-core points and 3,704 points on the multi-core test.
The difference between both the models aligns with the difference of previous variants for example the 865 and the 865+. The differences between the overall scores may not appear that big, but they do make a significant difference. Other differences can also be seen in the image compression and HDR segments and those processes will get a little faster. One can say it’s the Snapdragon 888 but on steroids.
If we talk about the devices that might use the SD 888+, we see the probability of the Samsung Galaxy Z fold 3, The Galaxy Note 21 (if they launch one) and maybe other Chinese phone developers like OnePlus etc.
So what do you guys think of the 888+? Will, you ever change your device to get a device with the + model of the chipset, or the difference doesn’t matter that much to you? Share your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.
