The new Samsung Galaxy S8 is said to be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, the most powerful microprocessor for an Android phone. Samsung runs a benchmark test of the Snapdragon 835, as a result, it shows that it works quite well than the previous processor that Samsung used.
According to WCCF Tech, with the codename MSM8998, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is powered with 8-core microprocessor. This microprocessor tends to run an optimal power consumption that will let the battery run for a longer time.
The Snapdragon is manufactured with the new 10nm technology that is said to run a virtual reality applications and programs smoothly as before. Since Samsung is reportedly using the Snapdragon 835 exclusively, it is pretty safe to say the Galaxy S8 could be the most powerful Android phone ever made.
The Snapdragon is designed to resolve the issues of heating up chipset and the power consumption issues that results in a problematic battery performance. The Snapdragon 835 was tested using a 4GB RAM while using the Android Nougat and according to the Geekbench chart, the Snapdragon outscored the performance of the Samsung Galaxy S7.
A chart revealed by the Phone Arena shows that the Snapdragon 835 uses a 1.9GHz core clock speed and haven't used its maximum power, yet it clearly dusted off the Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S7 used the Snapdragon 820 with 1.6GHz got a 1785 score just right below the 2004 score of the Snapdragon 835.
The new Samsung Galaxy S8 is confirmed to use the new Snapdragon 835, this ensures that the its performance will be way too good compared to the previous versions of the phone. It will offer a massive chipset power that provides better graphics and response. The best feature of all so far is, the less power consumption and the less heating time that will preserve the phone's durability for a longer time.
It has been said that these results are just for preliminary benchmark testing only, we still need to wait until the official benchmark by Samsung is announced. The only thing that matters now is that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a better performance significantly compared to the Galaxy S7.
