If you are wondering which is the fastest mobile processor in their world, here are some insights based on the benchmark performance.

There is a new mystery Qualcomm processor that was recently tracked on the Geek Benchmark website. It is most likely the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Octa-Core Processor.

The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 posted some impressive benchmark scores on the Geek Bench.

It is codenamed as “KONA”. The processor is fastest in the world in the multi-core score (12,915) even ahead of the Apple A12 and the Snapdragon 855 Plus.

Qualcomm has recently released the successor the Snapdragon 855, the Snapdragon 855 Plus.

The test was done on 7th August and on an unnamed smartphone running Android Q (10).

The smartphone used to test it has 6 GB of ram and the base frequency is 1.8 GHz.

However, the highest clock speed for the Snapdragon 865 is going to be over 3.0 GHz as the current Gen Snapdragon 855 Plus has a 2.96 GHz clock speed.

Also, it is unlikely that Qualcomm will start using the 5 Nm process for the production of SD 865, they will continue with the 7 Nm process.

The SD 865 will come with the Adreno 650 GPU for gaming.

The Adreno 640 was 20% faster than the predecessor, Adreno 630 and we can see a similar performance boost from the upcoming GPU.

Every year the new Flagship Qualcomm Processor debuts with the Samsung Galaxy S series. This year is also not going to be different.

Samsung S11 and the S11 Plus are going to be first mobiles to ship with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
