Qualcomm has scheduled to hold the Snapdragon Technology Summit on December 1. If nothing unexpected, the new flagship SoC Snapdragon 875 will be unveiled officially.

Except for Huawei, almost all top Android phones in the first half of next year are eager for this processor to debut. But we should admit this is not surprising. We mean Qualcomm 8 series chips are the best on the market. So for smartphone makers, it is the main SoC they can rely on when designing their flagship phones.
The latest news from a Weibo blogger says that the Snapdragon 875 has a single-core score of 4900+ and a multi-core score of 14000+ in GeekBench 4. As it is an engineering machine, first the results are for reference only. And of course, there is room for debugging, and secondly, the updated GeekBench 5 is temporarily unable to run.
Compared with the Snapdragon 865 (4300+/13000+), the single-core and multi-core tests improvements of the Snapdragon 875 are only 13% and 7%. Agree this is relatively limited.
Compared with A13 (5472/13769), the single-core gap is still obvious, and the multi-core lead is small.
The Snapdragon 875 super core is based on the Cortex-X1 magic modification, and the large core is based on the Cortex-A78 magic modification. Both have astonishing enhancements. But we should see those improvements in work not on paper only.
Apple has already launched the A14 processor on the iPad Air 4. And we saw that the performance improvement is already limited. It seems that we are entering the 5nm era this year. But we should also note that improvements with every new gen chip will become smaller.
