The new Snapdragon 860 is just a copy of the Snapdragon 855+ and that’s a good thing. The platform will make inexpensive smartphones much faster

Qualcomm seems to have made a point to keep using its top platforms for as long as possible. Previously, every year a new flagship SoC replaced the old one, and the old one was retired. This sometimes created huge performance gaps.

For example, last year the Snapdragon 865 SoC was the top-end, followed by the Snapdragon 765G, and there was a chasm between these platforms.

Everything changed this year. First we got the Snapdragon 870 SoC, which is just a slightly accelerated Snapdragon 865+, and now the Qualcomm range has been expanded with the Snapdragon 860 SoC. It is already included in the basis of the new Poco X3 Pro, and we already said that this is actually an update to the Snapdragon 855+.

Now you can turn to the Qualcomm website to clarify all the details. There you can see that Snapdragon 860 and 855+ have one page, which already indicates the minimum of possible differences. Actually, the Qualcomm website does not indicate at all that there are at least some differences between the platforms. Third-party sources talk about adding support for 16GB of RAM and several new camera features, but these are probably purely software differences that could have been added if necessary by the Snapdragon 855+.

As a result, the Snapdragon 860 is simply a renamed Snapdragon 855+ with its seven-nanometer process technology, 4G support and optional 5G support when using a separate modem, as well as still very decent performance. At least the popular Snapdragon 72x and 73x, as well as the Snapdragon 765G, are significantly less productive.

In particular, many smartphones in the 200-300 euro price range are equipped with the platforms mentioned above, while the new Poco X3 Pro offers the Snapdragon 860.

Previously, the Nothing Phone (1) smartphone was tested in the AnTuTu benchmark, where it unexpectedly showed the best result in its class. At the same time, the smartphone endured the drop test worse. It is noteworthy that the screen can withstand drops in the presence of a film, but the back panel suffers much more.

The price of the smartphone is from 469 euros for the basic memory configuration.

Insiders have repeatedly noted that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in terms of design is not much different from the current generation model. They don’t expect a revolution in terms of technical parameters either – the main innovation will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, but the camera sensors, apparently, will remain 12-megapixel. However, it is expected that the battery capacity will increase to 3700 mAh.

Roland Quandt is a well-known informant. Previously, he completely declassified the GoPro 9 Black and GoPro 10 Black action cameras before their announcement, and also named their exact cost.

The frame is narrower but the camera protrudes much more

The official premiere of the iPhone 14 smartphones will take place in September, and a comparison of the current iPhone 13 Pro and the promising iPhone 14 Pro has already been published on the Web. And the comparison is live.

Usually, production of a new generation of iPhone starts in early summer, so theoretically these photos could be a production iPhone 14 Pro, although it is more likely that this is a prototype or even a mock-up. Be that as it may, in terms of dimensions and layout, it should not differ from the retail version.

The photo clearly shows how different the front cameras and screen cutouts are in the current and future models. The screen bezel on the iPhone 14 Pro is also smaller. The main camera block in the iPhone 14 Pro is larger than the similar block in the iPhone 13 Pro, and the lenses protrude more out of the body.

In the new lineup, only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to receive the Apple A16 SoC. Also, the Pro versions are credited with a 48-megapixel module in a block with an ultra-wide-angle lens and support for 8K video recording.
