Snapdragon 865/765 for 2020 models

This is a revolutionary processor if there is one. It makes possible 8k recording, 4k/120 , 960fps at 720 and even Dolby video which is the first time in a consumer video. This is actually much needed update for camera and the screen. The screen resolution will be either 4k/60hz or 3200-1800/144hz. It must have been at least 5 years of 12 megapixel camera and 1440 pixel screen which is too little. I am having trouble reading it and there is lots of text overlap in my phones. There is also 5g which I would call experimental at this point and some new possible features like storing driving licenses. Snapdragon 765 is really like an old processor with 5g.

Meh.

Features I do not care for.

Whether phones will take advantage of the capabilities is another matter entirely. As for the cameras, 108 megapixels is nice until you shoot in low light - at which point noise becomes a big issue. 8k video recording will be pointless as well, given the storage requirements.

Every year, Apple, Qualcomm, Huawei, etc. say the same thing year after year.

1) Announcement: this CPU is our best ever. You'll get X times faster performance, Y% more battery times, etc.
2) A year goes by.
3) Announcement: this year's CPU is so much better, so much faster, so much more power efficient than last year's model, etc.

Dual frequency GNSS is perhaps something that I would be interested in when it comes to new generations of CPUs. Other than that, I'm perfectly okay with SD835 with my phone (Pixel 2).

... And every year, the only time we might see battery life gains is when manufacturers go the brute-force method and just cram a bigger battery in there!

Batteries are the same size or smaller but with better chemistry so there is more energy and less cost and it will continue for at least a decade.

Here is a geekbench 5 which shows significant improvement compared to last model . Compared to Apple Iphone , it gets beaten in single core and it's the same on multi core. I think single core is only relevant for gaming if anyone does that on a phone.

If that was true then the milliamp hour ratings for the same size of batteries would be increasing. We haven't really seen any significant increase in phone battery storage capacity over the past decade.

S11 + could be 5000 mah . while S10 + was 4100 mah. A Note 4 of mine had 3000 mah . I think it's the same size .

Either way, it makes the efficiency gains of the platform a moot point. Those 4k or high refresh displays that the SoC supports? They'll eat up way more power!

Previous 8xx processors have supported more than 12MP camera resolution as well, so it's not the SoC that was limiting resolution there.
