Thanks to a trustworthy tipster on Weibo, and sometimes active on Twitter as well, the upcoming flagship SoCs from Qualcomm and MediaTek are partially revealed. Some of the specs have already been outed but the new information helps paint a fuller picture.
The Snapdragon 898 will be fabbed at Samsung using its 4nm manufacturing process and the SoC would employ an octa-core CPU that consists of a Cortex-X2-based main core clocked at 3.0 GHz along with 3x Cortex-A710-based performance cores running at 2.5 GHz. The energy-efficient Cortex-A510-based cores will be clocked at 1.79GHz while the Adreno 730 GPU will take care of the graphically-intensive workloads.
The Dimensity 2000 would feature an identical configuration but the cluster of three performance cores is said to be clocked at 2.85 GHz – considerably higher than the Snapdragon 898’s ones. The GPU is rumored to be Mali-G710 MC10. Notably, MediaTek’s flagship silicon will be based on TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process.
