Later this year, the Qualcomm snapdragon 898 and mediaTek Dimensity 2000 flagship chipsets are scheduled to be released.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 898
The Snapdragon 898 would have an octa-core CPU with a cortex-X3 based main core clocked at 3.0GHz and 3x Cortex-A710 performance cores clocked at 2.5GHz. The cores based on the energy-efficient Cortex-A510 will be clocked at 1.79 GHz. To manage graphic demands, the chipset will be combined with the Adreno 730 GPU. What improvements it will offer over the Adreno 660, on the other hand, is yet to be seen.
MediaTek Dimensity 2000
Similarly, the Dimensity 2000 will have the same configuration as the Snapdragon 898, but the cluster of three performance cores will be clocked at 2.85GHz, which is significantly faster than the Snapdragon 898. For graphics, the chipset will be coupled with the Mali G710 MC10 GPU. The chipset will be built using TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process, thus performance should be consistent and similar to the Snapdragon flagship SoCs. Once the chipset is formally revealed and made accessible to OEMs, we should expect companies like Redmi, Realme, OPPO, and others to line up phones.
