The flagship SoC for 2017 (SD 835) does 180k on AnTuTu


Qualcomm make some of the most kickass mobile SoCs, and for 2017 the fabricator has prepared the Snapdragon 835 for this year. A phone with this SoC has yet to be launched, and according to what’s being said about it, it’s going to be rather powerful.

Benchmark scores of the Snapdragon 835 have been revealed, and based on what the numbers are like, the 835 is… nothing short of a powerhouse. Keep reading for the scores.

While the it’s true that synthetic benchmarking isn’t anywhere close to real world stress tests, it still does give us an idea of the kind of potential the SoC holds.

According to benchmark numbers, the 835, as expected, trumps the 820 and 821 in single- as well as multi-core tests. On popular (arguably the most popular) benchmarking app AnTuTu, the 835 scores upwards of 180,000 points.

The scores come from a reference design phone, which features near-life like specs – a 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440p resolution, 6GB of RAM, and a 2,850 mAh battery.

    Hmm… I hope the price of the phones rocking this baby ain’t gonna be sky high. Though I think I’ll get an SD 821 phone for now to be backed up by my current Coolpad Cool 1 Dual (4GB RAM, 64GB ROM model).

    Disappointing. Should have hit 250k at least. Sounds like a minor incremental update.
