Starting yesterday, the Snapdragon 888 is on everyone’s lips. As you know, at the 2020 Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit, Qualcomm officially released the new generation of mobile flagship platform.
In 2021, no less than 15 smartphone manufacturers will launch products sporting the Snapdragon 888. The first batch list includes Xiaomi, OnePlus, Sony, VIVO, OPPO, Realme, Meizu, ZTE, Black Shark, Lenovo, Nubia, Asus, Motorola, Sharp and LG.
Unexpectedly, less than one day after the official announcement of the Snapdragon 888, the GeekBench running score of the new VIVO phone powered by the Snapdragon 888 has appeared on the net.
As we can see from the screenshot, the model of the machine is vivo V2056A. It scores 1135 points in the single-core and 3681 points in the multi-core tests.
Let’s compare its running points with the Kirin 9000 (1014/3715). We can see that the single-core score of the Snapdragon 888 is slightly stronger than that of the Kirin 9000. Plus, the multi-core score is weaker than that of the Kirin 9000. Since it is still an engineering machine, the running score will be slightly lower.
In addition, according to the news from a Weibo blogger, the new VIVO phone has the highest score among the currently exposed engineering machines. Also, it comes with OriginOS out of the box. The progress of the VIVO X60 Pro+ and the iQOO7 is relatively fast. They are going to hit the market as soon as next month.
VIVO Won’t Fall Behind
At the Qualcomm 2020 Snapdragon Technology Summit, Hu Baishan, executive vice president and chief operating officer of VIVO, said through a video that VIVO and iQOO smartphone products will be the first to come with the new Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform. They will bringing consumers more powerful performance and richer functional experience.
As Qualcomm’s most powerful mobile platform so far, the advent of the Snapdragon 888 also represents a new performance battle between major mainstream Android smartphone manufacturers in 2021. For consumers, there will be more choice.
