Our phones are getting faster with every generation, and in 2021, it is largely expected that the majority of flagship smartphones will end up being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. Now thanks to benchmarks shared on Twitter, it seems that the Snapdragon 875 will have massive performance gains over the Snapdragon 865+.
Assuming that the benchmarks are accurate, the Snapdragon 875 managed to score a very impressive 847,868. This is versus the Snapdragon 865+ which scored 629,425, meaning that the Snapdragon 875 managed to beat out its predecessor by over 200,000 points! How that translates to real world performance, but on paper it is mighty impressive.

We want to point out that benchmarks only tell one part of the story and that unless you’re using your smartphone to power very resource-hungry apps, for the most part a lot of chipsets, including entry-level and mid-range models, will be more than enough to get the job done for surfing the web, going on social media, using messaging apps, and playing games.
That being said, there is a reason to be excited for high-performing SoCs. Apple is expected to debut their own Apple Silicon powered Mac computers this year, and if companies like Qualcomm can put out equally powerful, if not more powerful chipsets, we could be looking at a future where more computers will end up being powered by SoCs versus more traditional processors from Intel and AMD.
