Another new extra-fast Snapdragon chip leaks - could it be on smartphones soon?
posted by Stephen S. / Jun 07, 2016, 6:57 PM
Stick with us for a moment, as this gets a little complicated: see, there's already been a rumor bouncing around that the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe could arrive in certain markets running a Snapdragon 823.
But now we're looking at some actual physical evidence claiming that the ZenFone 3 Deluxe will be available in versions running both the Snapdragon 820 and a mysterious Snapdragon 821 – that's a chip we haven't really heard about before.
Based on what little evidence we can see here, the 821 sounds a lot like the 823 – just an 820 operating a little faster.
This leaves us with a few possibilities: could the chip we've been talking about as the Snapdragon 823 actually be called the 821, instead? Could Qualcomm be planning to release both chips, possible with slightly different capabilities? And as we're forced to acknowledge, could the ZenFone 3 Deluxe actually be getting the Snapdragon 823 as first reported, and all this mention of the 821 in these documents (as professional as they look), be some sort of typo?
There's an answer in there somewhere, but for the moment it remains just out of reach.

So the 821 is just a slightly higher clocked 820, and the rumoured 823 up to 2.6Ghz which can get you at least a 145k score...ok

BTW it could be from Samsung's 14LPP process maturing, allowing Qualcomm to reduce voltages and increase clocks without increasing power consumption But increasing to 2.6GHz is a big increase and 14LPP should have been pretty mature since its Samsung's second 14nm process Hopefully that means its also improved Kryo cores, not just overclocked Like the improvement from 600->800 or 801->805 Instead of 800->801

Hopefully. Enough A9 A9x A10 A10x A11 A11x etc etc dominating the mobile SoC department for the years to come. Lets here some different headline for once.

Agreed. Also benchmarks are not precise measurement as they would need to run on identical OS to get result thats matter. If you run android on Apple A serie soc its will lag like hell. But apple iOS would fly on current gen SOC used in android. Dont forget both are ARM based and compatible with each other OS or could be with appropriate firmware. Unordinary is just a troll.

It's the ugliest phone I've ever seen and the priciest, it has the worst performance/price ratio from all the phones the world. Even average Android phones have better hardware. Apple remains faithful to its good old slogan: "Yesterday's technology at tomorrow's prices". But for the brainwashed isheep, even a brick with an apple on it is like pure gold.
