Well, you might not have to wait that long because we already came across a listing on GeekBench which revealed the score obtained by the chipset. The listing reveals the chipset to score 1844 in single-core whereas 5426 in the multi-core process. On comparing it with the latest Snapdragon 821, its multi-core score has considerably gone up, however, the single-core score stays same.
But it is advised to take this information with a pinch of salt as the device used for the test is just a development board which are used for testing purpose. It is listed as Essential FIH-PM1” with 4GB of RAM and running Android Nougat 7.0.
The company previously revealed that the chipset will be made of Samsung’s 10nm FinFET technology and will also come with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 technology support. The Quick Charge 4.0 is said to provide five hours to battery backup just with a charge of five minutes. Some rumours also claim the Samsung Galaxy S8, HTC 11, and Xiaomi Mi 6 to be powered by Snapdragon 835.
