One of Qualcomm’s trademarks is the introduction of an upgraded version of its processors shortly after its launch. One of the most famous of these enhancements is the Snapdragon 821 processor, but the Snapdragon 835 was out of the question, and Qualcomm did not upgrade it. This process was upgraded, but again resumed with the Snapdragon 845 processor, and Qualcomm released the upgraded version of the processor named Snapdragon 850.

The flagship processor of the company, Snapdragon 855, has now come to the forefront of its upgraded version, called Snapdragon 855 Plus. Read on to check this processor and compare it with the Snapdragon 855 processor.
Snapdragon 855 Plus; Improvements for gaming
This upgraded processor is optimized for Gaming, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and 5th generation network (5G). The overall design of the processor has not changed compared to the Snapdragon 855, but according to Qualcomm, the Plus version of the chip works at a clock speed of 2.96 GHz.
The most important part for gamers is the improvement of the 15 percent performance of the Adreno 640 graphics card. It looks like a new wave of gaming handsets (like Razer and Asus phones and so on).

On the other hand, the processor has advanced in terms of artificial intelligence and augmented reality, and with the fourth generation of artificial intelligence engine that can handle more than 7 trillion runs per second.
According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor delivers superior performance, superb coverage and high battery life (for the entire day) for 5G devices. The processor is still composed of two separate modems, one of the Snapdragon X24 LTE 4G modem and the other Qualcomm X50 5G modem on the board, and what we guess is that we will not see any better performance until the Snapdragon 865 comes in.

The Snapdragon 855 is still awesome
The Snapdragon 855, which is currently being used on flagship handsets like the Galaxy S Plus, Phone 7, Peru, etc., is an extremely powerful, functional, and non-slippery processor for Android phones.
It’s unlikely that the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor will be used on phones in the second half of 2019, and even the Galaxy Note 10 specs and Pixel 4 might be the first smartphone to go on the market with this processor. Ref: anandtech
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Next Flagship Test Results Released at Geek Bunch
As we all know, currently, the Snapdragon 855 processor posted above is the most powerful mobile processor used in smartphones this day. The processor, which was the first 7nm mobile processor, was introduced in December 2018, about 8 months ago. Less than a month ago, however, Qualcomm introduced an upgraded version of the processor called the Snapdragon 855 Plus, and of the processor clocked at 2.96 GHz (while the Snapdragon 855 had a clock speed of 2.84 GHz), only Two gaming smartphones (ROG Phone 2 and Black Shark 2 Pro) were used.
It is now rumored that by the end of 2019, the next Qualcomm processor will be announced as the Snapdragon 865. Rumors and speculation about the processor started in August last year, and now the first benchmark of the processor has been released by the famous Ice Universe ID on Twitter.
Performance of the New Snapdragon 865 processor in Geek Bunch
The device on which the Snapdragon 865 processor is tested is called Qualcomm Kona. According to the tech-savvy techie, the Geek Bench test results showed that the Snapdragon 865 performs better than the Snapdragon 855 in both single-core and multi-core modes. In fact, the Snapdragon 855 gained about 3500 points in the single-core segment, but now the new processor in the family has gained 4160 points.
In multi-core mode, the Snapdragon 865 also performs much better than the current version. In fact, the SD855 had a score of around 11000 in the multi-core segment, while the SD865 scored 12946 in the same segment.
However, it is clear that the performance of the new version of the Snapdragon processor is about 20% better than the current flagship.

SD865 processor performance in two single-core and multi-core components
The result of this benchmark is precisely in the single-core and multi-core sections and they are as follows:
Specifications of the device on which the SD865 is tested
So far we’ve only talked about the performance of the Snapdragon 865 processor, but specifics about the device on which this processor is mounted and tested have also been released. It runs on Android 10 but is not the next version of Android Q. It also comes with 6GB of RAM and has a frequency of 1.78 GHz, but the frequency is mentioned for single-core mode but 1.8 GHz for multi-core mode.
We expect the Snapdragon 865 processor to support LPDDR5X RAM, UFS 3.0 memory, and the HDR10 + standard. This processor could be the second generation of Qualcomm’s 7-nanometer chipsets after the Snapdragon 855.
SD865 processor introduced
Qualcomm is said to unveil the processor in December of this year’s event. Unless otherwise, the powerful processor will be used on the Galaxy S11, the next flagship of the Samsung Galaxy S family, according to the same discloser.
