Qualcomm has tuned its top chip and offers a little more performance with the new Snapdragon 888 Plus. In which phones will it be used first?
At MWC 2021, Qualcomm presented the Snapdragon 888 Plus, an even more powerful version of its previous top chip. As in previous years, Qualcomm will give its current top chip another performance peak in the middle of the year and then make the system-on-a-chip (SoC) available to smartphone manufacturers as a plus version. So far, five manufacturers have announced that they will be using the chip in new flagship devices.
Snapdragon 888 Plus with up to 3 GHz performance
The previous performance limit of the CPU for the basic Snapdragon 888 is 2.84 GHz. Qualcomm now gives the computing brain even more fire with around 3 GHz. The graphics unit remains unaffected by the increase in performance. The Adreno 660 GPU continues to deliver 840 MHz. At 20 percent compared to the 888, however, the AI performance of the Plus version has increased significantly.
Will you notice the difference? Hardly likely. If you have a current top smartphone with a Snapdragon 888, you won’t notice any difference in performance compared to a device equipped with an 888 Plus. It looks different, of course, if you switch from an older cell phone to one with the Plus SoC. Then you get the maximum performance that is currently possible with Android smartphones and you will also be on the move for the next few years.
Which smartphones use the new chip?
So far, five smartphone manufacturers have announced that they want to use the new Snapdragon 888 Plus in their devices. Including Xiaomi, Vivo, Motorola, Honor and Asus. The latter two have already confirmed the devices in which the chip is used: Asus will equip their new gaming smartphone ROG Phone with the 888 Plus and Honor uses the chip in the Magic 3 series, which, according to Leaks, will probably be used for is planned for late summer.
