A few days ago, Qualcomm introduced a slightly renewed version of its high-quality Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. With the name Snapdragon 855+, upgrading media generation brings the clock speed of lone Kryo 485 prime CPU to 2.96 GHz. The 7 nm chip produced by TSMC retains some of the other features of the current Snapdragon 855, it includes three cores Kryo 485 silver CPU low power consumption 1.8 GHz and four cores high-performance Kryo 485 gold CPU with a clock speed of 2.42 GHz. it is also getting a boost from the Adreno 640 GPU, which will increase the yield by 15%. Snapdragon 855+ will keep the X24 multigigabit 4G LTE modem and the X50 5G modem.
When Qualcomm announced yesterday that devices using the Snapdragon 855+ will be available in the second half of this year. And considering that we are already at that time, it was assumed that the known Samsung Galaxy 10 series would use the new chipset to further differentiate the current Galaxy flagship S10 Sammy line; After all, the new range will be released on August 7th and could be launched a couple of weeks later. But it doesn’t have to be. The Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ will have the old Snapdragon 855 mobile platform under the hood in the US. And the Exynos 9825 SoC almost anywhere else.
As a result, the sequel to the Asus ROG Phone II will be the first phone with the new chip. Taking into account the improvements introduced in the graphic capabilities of the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, a gaming phone is a perfect option to present Snapdragon 855+. And although the phone is not the centerpiece of this story, we must point out that the screen will include a 120Hz refresh rate that corresponds to the Razer Phone 2 and that exceeds the 90Hz frequency in the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Samsung Galaxy S11 Line To Be Powered By Unannounced Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform
Sticking to the current Snapdragon 855 instead of using the Snapdragon 855 + could be disappointing for some potential buyers of Galaxy Note 10 in the US, but it’s unlikely that it will pay Samsung any business in the states. We hope to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 with 4G LTE connectivity with a 6.3-inch dynamic AMOLED curved screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3040.
The base model will come with 256 GB of storage space, twice what most star models are starting these days. The triple camera configuration will be on the back (12MP with three-stage variable aperture + 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom, + 16MP wide-angle). A 3400mAh battery will keep the lights on. The 256 GB model will cost $1,000, while the 512 GB storage unit will cost $1,150.
The Galaxy Note 10+ and the Galaxy Note 10 5G will feature a 6.75-inch AMOLED dynamic curve display. We could see three different storage options (256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB) for both models. In addition to having the same triple camera, you will find on the back of the Galaxy Note 10, the Galaxy Note 10+ and the Galaxy Note 10 5G will have a sensor Time of Flight (ToF). This will provide better depth calculations that should produce better bokeh effects in portraits. Since the S Pen case takes up some space, Samsung had to settle for a 4170mAh battery in these two models. While both will support the 45-watt charger, the manufacturer will include a 25-watt adapter in the box, although it will sell the fastest charger.
The Galaxy Note 10, the Galaxy Note 10+ and the Galaxy Note 10 5G will have a punch-hole selfie snap centered on the front. This will help to reduce the frame size on the Infinity O screen. The three will also offer the PowerShare reverse wireless charging function, the IP68 dust, and water resistance and will be pre-installed with Android 9 Pie together with the One user Samsung UI. The latter positions click options at the bottom of the screen so users don’t have to swipe their fingers to reach certain buttons once they are positioned at the top of a phone’s display.
If you are still wondering, it is very likely that next year’s Samsung Galaxy S11 series will be launched in the US with the Snapdragon 865 Mobile platform still to be announced inside.
