The first appearance of Qualcomm snapdragon 860 is an improved version of snapdragon 855

Recently, Millet's overseas sub brand poco released its new model poco X3

Pro。 Normally speaking, there is not much to see about a mid-range mobile phone facing overseas. However, this mobile phone is the first one equipped with Qualcomm snapdragon 860 SOC, which has aroused many people’s curiosity.

From Xiaomi’s introduction, we can see that the essence of Qualcomm snapdragon 860 is the new version of snapdragon 855 two years ago, similar to the transformation of snapdragon 865 into 870. Like snapdragon 855, the Qualcomm snapdragon 860 has four arms

Kryo 485 core of cortex-a76 architecture, with a frequency of 2.96 GHz, and four efficiency cores of arm cortex-a55 architecture, with a frequency of 1.8 GHz

GHz, integrated with Adreno 640 GPU, still manufactured in 7Nm process.

According to XDA developers, snapdragon 860 has some improvements compared with snapdragon 855. For example, it supports up to 16GB of memory and many new camera functions such as ultra wide angle lens night view mode, self shooting night view mode and dual video. Qualcomm hasn’t described its features in detail, and we don’t know if there will be other improvements or differences.

In the past, according to the high, medium and low-end market, Qualcomm will release more than 400 series, 600 series, 700 series and 800 series models respectively. As a high-end 800 series, there is only one product. However, recently, it seems that Qualcomm has changed its strategy. In addition to its flagship snapdragon 888, it has also launched 870, and now it has added a new member, snapdragon 860. Probably, Qualcomm thinks that compared with the new middle and low-end models, the old high-end models may have better basic performance after appropriate improvement, and this method is faster and more convenient, which can reduce the cost. For example, the snapdragon 765G, which can support 5g, has the same performance as the snapdragon 845, but the time difference is two years.

Perhaps in the future, this strategy of Qualcomm will become the norm.
