Qualcomm announced Snapdragon 888 plus processor that is based on 5-nanometer technology with clocks up to 3 GHz and 20% improved AI than its predecessor.
Snapdragon 888 Plus comes with the 6th Generation Qualcomm AI Engine, it also equips Kryo 680 CPU with prime core clock speed at up to 3.0 GHz. That’s actually 2.995GHz which Qualcomm is marketing as 3.00GHz.
Snapdragon 888 Plus is about to dive into the flagship smartphone processors category in android smartphones. Qualcomm is one of the oldest and most reputable companies that is supplying its hardware to many smartphone companies and recently Nuvia has also join hands with Qualcomm.
Snapdragon 888 was the predecessor of this Snapdragon 888 plus. The difference between 888 and 888 plus is that it comes with a 20% better AI task than its predecessor which makes both processors a bit identical which’s bothering many tech analysts. We were expecting something extraordinary. It’s the same old update that we have seen in Snapdragon 865 Plus. Still old school?
AI is the true hero of the Snapdragon® 888+, working diligently and seamlessly to improve every on-device passion and pastime. Real-time translation of in-game chat enables seamless collaboration for cutting-edge global competition. Video upscaling boosts video resolution without increasing data consumption. Plus, AI can auto-enhance your photography, including semantic segmentation in video capture, recognizing, isolating, and optimizing individual aspects of footage, such as subjects and backgrounds. This is intelligence like never before, catapulting the 8-series into a whole new category of excellence.Qualcomm stated while discussing AI
