Does the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 have chances to upgrade from SDM845 to SDM855?
YenneferTNS Yea. It could also be that.

So many people trying to compare apples soc to Android's. The snapdragon 835 is more than enough to do anything and everything after is overkill. There is nothing my S9+ can't do with an 845. Don't bring up that stupid encoding 4k video shit because I never have nor will I do that.
Flare78x future proofing. I mean my 835 is fine indeed but heavy apps will improve just like the processors so... 4k encoding is just an example that shows how powerful processors are. Think of it as benchmarking.

I am buying a phone with with Snapdragon 855 because of the audio. I wish people would talk more about it since it will change the audio market. Anyone who manufactures headphones/earbuds can release a new model with APTX-Adaptive.

The 855 supports: Qualcomm Aqstic audio technology; Qualcomm aptX support, including classic aptX, aptX HD and aptX adaptive; Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus.

Crazy news with Huawei! The Canadians have arrested a top Huawei executive to be extradited to the USA! War will be on the cards shortly if this is not sorted out! The Americans claim that because THEY have sanctioned North Korea and Iran, and Huawei has dealings with them, then they are eligible to lock her up, Her being the CFO of Huawei, The founder of Huawei's daughter! Huawei work hand in hand with the Chinese government and military, They are the pride of China, The second biggest mobile phone company in the world The real truth is that, they have surpassed the old blocks technological capacity for spy communications, The old block being the classic five English speaking countries: Canada, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand... This last stunt by the Americans is as if a temper tantrum... Their only rebuttal in a lost technological war... The Chinese have surpassed the West in nearly every way now, and the loss of that hold on global power will cause these scuffles, and that, unfortunately, will probably inevitably lead to war, I'm afraid

Sony XZ2 from Feb,18 records in HDR
Gary Explains (8 days ago)
And HDR10+???
ZeeC (8 days ago)
01:04 so basically it means that SD845 is faster than SD855 coz it has 845 has 4 cores at 2.8GHz and while 855 has only one core at 2.8GHz. Only good thing about it has 5G.
Miguel Ángel (21 hours ago)
Yes!!!! And the old 805 is faster too!!!! It can reach 2.85Ghz!!!!11111 /s
RivaZA1 (2 days ago)
No those 3 2.4ghz cores in the 855 are more advanced than the 2.8ghz cores in the 845. So they will be able to do more work at the lower clock than what's in the 845.
Gary Explains (8 days ago)
No, it doesn't work like that. The Cortex-A76 has a higher performance than the Cortex-A75 etc.
RishabhOne (8 days ago)
That's not how it works Idiot. 855 is way ahead in performance compared to 845 despite having only one 2.84 Ghz prime core. You know why? Cos this chip is *7nm!* as compared to 10 nms 845.

everydayfun (8 days ago)

Vhsss Tv (8 days ago)
4x 3ghz & 4x2.0 GHz would have been preferred.
Miguel Ángel (21 hours ago)
+Vhsss Tv The process offers you two things: better efficiency at the same clock (if everything else remain the same including the arch) _OR_ more performance at the same power consumption of the previous node. This 855 and kirin 980 uses new cores that are wider than last year, meaning they use much more power already. The process node just compensate a bit of that, but both Huawei and specially QC are clocking them really high so in the end the process advantage isnt enough and your battery would suffer "when needed"...
Vhsss Tv (8 days ago)
+Gary Explains 4000 should be enough. You don't always need to access that power so it wouldn't consume more but if you need the power its there also its 7nm so its more energy efficient than your previous phone so you wouldn't notice a difference in battery drain :)
Gary Explains (8 days ago)
Yeah, but what size battery would you need!!! 6000mAh???

A12 bionic is better?
azrul nizam (8 days ago)
With single core clocking higher than the rest for maximum single threading performance which is pretty similar to TurboBoost technology in desktop cpu, we're reaching the day where soon (maybe) all portable PC will be equipped with a much more efficient processor with a pretty much similar processing capabilities to that X86 based cpu.
I want a x86 core.

A better CPU,and A LOT better GPU than the Kirin.Actually Kirin only wins in the NPU.The only thing where A12 only prevails over 855 is the CPU,and not by large.
Critique Truth (8 days ago)
Apple is still way ahead of the game.. I hope Samsung make significant improvement to exynos, cause earlier it was better than Snapdragon.. Due to which I think it has potential to come close to Apple.
Raymond Liu (8 days ago)
I think Samsung will be forced to make their chips very similar to QUALCOMM as long as they are still in the deal where Samsung phones must use the QUALCOMM chips in America or else no one would buy the QUALCOMM version :/

The chip can record in HDR+, but can the camera? That's the question. I think this potential will go unused in cheaper SD855 phones.
Miguel Ángel (22 hours ago)
+Z RiX That's not what he meant. You need that the sensor on the camera could capture enough light to merge 3 frames (at different exposures) into one. That's 180 fps. And remember that as you increase the framerate your final video is actually dimmer. Try to shot one at 30, 60 an 120 to see the difference.

Umesh Benake (8 days ago)
Tell me garry 2* 2.84 + 2*2.42+ 4*1.80.. Will this configuration required more power? (Obviously yes but it will hugely affect battery life ?)Why they didn't go with this configuration? What you think which number we can achieve with above configuration?
Umesh Benake (8 days ago)
+Gary Explains Thank you sir
Gary Explains (8 days ago)
Ah, I see, sorry for the confusion. Well, the Kirin 980 went with the 2+2+4 setup and because of that it has this "Performance Mode" which is off by default (please see my Speed Test G videos for more practical insights into that). So from that one could conclude that it doesn't work as well as 1+3+4. Ultimately we will only know when we start to see SD855 devices.
Umesh Benake (8 days ago)
+Gary Explains I know sir.. But i am asking you what will happen if its 2+2+4 type.
Gary Explains (8 days ago)
It isn't 2+2+4, it is 1+3+4.
