The Snapdragon 870 5G mobile platform, an updated version of the 2020 flagship, was launched by US processor manufacturer Qualcomm.
The architecture is nearly identical to the Snapdragon 865 and 865 Plus 2020; the Kryo 585 CPU and the Adreno 650 GPU cores are included.
The Snapdragon 870, however, is clocked at 3.2 GHz, 10 percent higher than the original 865’s 2.84 GHz, and 3 percent faster than the 865 Plus’s 3.1 GHz.
According to the manufacturer, by integrating gaming upgrades and support for mmWave (millimeter wave) and sub-6Ghz 5G networks, the Snapdragon 870 is designed to provide greater efficiency across the board.
You will experience high speeds, improved bandwidth and widespread connectivity with 5G and Wi-Fi 6 capabilities, the firm said.
What differentiates it from the 888 Snapdragon?
The platform will be available on Motorola, iQOO, OnePlus, OPPO and Xiaomi phones in the first quarter of 2021.
While the Snapdragon 870 was later introduced, the Snapdragon 888, announced in December 2020, is Qualcomm’s next-generation chip.
This mobile platform provides more features and major changes in performance and equips smartphones such as the Galaxy S21 series from Samsung.
The Snapdragon 870 was designed to meet the demands of the mobile industry and original equipment manufacturers, the company said (OEMs).
The Snapdragon 870 is actually built for businesses who want to deliver a top-tier processor, but don’t need the best features that the Snapdragon 888 entails, and the higher price.
Qualcomm has announced that a series of devices from companies such as Motorola, iQOO, OnePlus, OPPO and Xiaomi, which could be announced during the first quarter of 2021, would control the mobile platform.
