This new Snapdragon is better than the 865 in numerous ways. A new mobile phone processor has been announced by Qualcomm, which is called the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, this new processor is being deemed as a successor to both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 as well as the 865 Plus. This new processor is not the flagship processor, that flagship title goes towards Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which ultimately increases the performance and is also accompanied with the newest features.
The design of the 870 is the same as the designs of 865 and the 865 Plus. The design is so similar that it has the same cores. 870 has a 3.2 GHz, and because of this it is 10% faster as compared to the 865 which gives 2.84 GHz, whilst it is 3% faster as compared to the 865 Plus, which gave 3.1 GHz of speed. It is kinda like a plus version of 865 Plus.
Qualcomm’s main purpose of creating the 870 was to cater to the demands of the market as well as the manufacturers. The 870 is for top-tier performance, but it won’t have the same features as the flagship one, which is the 888. Since the 888 is higher price as compared to the 870, it will have better features, but Qualcomm wanted to find a middle ground therefore, they produced the 870. It could just be that the companies just wanted a new name for their new 2021 phones, with just a little bit better performance that the 865 Plus, it doesn’t make much difference, therefore, it will help change the minds of the customers thinking that it is a new technology, a new model, which will make them buy the phones that have this chip in it, instead of the 865 models.
