There probably won’t be a mobile device with Snapdragon 820 that consumers can buy this year, but at least we already know what to expect. A device called Green Orange X1 Pro and powered by Qualcomm’s chip has been spotted in the AnTuTu rankings and reached an incredible score of 83,774.
By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S6 (which AnTuTu claimed to be the most powerful in July) and its Exynos 7420 chip can reach a score of more than 68,000. The HTC One M9 and OnePlus 2, both powered by Snapdragon 810, can reach more than 56,000 and 63,700, respectively.
The Green Orange X1 Pro was reportedly able to reach such a high score with the following specs: Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 4GB of RAM, 1080p resolution and 16-megapixel main camera. Announced last month, the Snapdragon 820 features the 64-bit Kryo processor, Adreno 530 graphics, and a new image signal processor called Qualcomm Spectra. The chip promises to be more powerful while at the same time more efficient in its power consumption.
The Snapdragon 820 is meant to become Qualcomm’s next-gen high-end chip, superseding the Snapdragon 810 (which is prone to overheat). The first commercial smartphone to take advantage of the chip is said to be the Xiaomi Mi5, which will apparently arrive in March 2016.
