There?s a lot of great things that are coming in next year. Recently, there has been consistent leaks regarding the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8 over the past couple of weeks. And apparently, Qualcomm?s Snapdragon 835 will not let itself be shadowed by these devices.

The year 2017 will definitely bring a lot of innovation on our current technology. It is the year where we?ll finally see 10nm technology mobile processors. And as a result, it will have significant performance boost, as well as further power efficiency. For processors, the first quarter of the year will bring the Samsung Exynos 8895 and the Snapdragon 835.

Both of them appears to be highly anticipated. Furthermore, the first benchmark that belongs to the Snapdragon has now surfaced on the Internet. As can be seen below, the Snapdragon 835 appears to have faster than Snapdragon 821 in multi-core performance.

On the other hand, the 835 appears to be behind the 821 when it comes to single-core scores. According to reports, it is due to the fact that 821 contains only four cores while the 835 has eight. Furthermore, the 1.9GHz octa-core CPU is accompanied by 4GB of RAM while running an Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

Snapdragon 835 Failed To Impress?

All in all, the score appears to have failed to impress given that the current generation 821 already achieved close to it. As a matter of fact, recently released smartphones such as Huawei Kirin 960 and OnePlus 3T?s chip have surpassed the 835 in single-core tests.

OnePlus 3T and Huawei Kirin 960?s chip have managed to achieve 6439 points in multi-core and 1949 in single core tests. In this case, there?s quite a difference. However, it is also possible that the test device is somehow restricted in performance.

In other words, the device might not be able to showcase the processor?s true potential. It kinda doesn?t make sense given that we?ve already seen the 835 outperform powerful chips like Apple A10 using the AnTuTu benchmark. Hence, the score should be bigger than what?s shown in the image when it finally hits flagship devices.
