Today Qualcomm is disclosing a set of benchmark results for the new Snapdragon 888 SoC that’s set to power next year’s flagship Android devices. Usually, as years past, we would have had opportunities to benchmark Qualcomm’s reference designs ourselves during the chipset launch event, or a few weeks later during CES – however due to obvious circumstances this wasn’t possible this year.
As an alternative, Qualcomm is therefor sharing with the press a set of benchmark results on their new Snapdragon 888 reference design phone. Usually, the point of having the press benchmark the devices themselves is that it adds independent verification of the benchmark scores. This time around we’ll have to make a little leap of faith in the accuracy of Qualcomm’s numbers – of course we still pretty much expect the figures to be accurate and be reproduced in commercial devices.
