Qualcomm just launched a new high-end Snapdragon 888 which powers Samsung's S21, smartphone processor, but it's already got another chipset available to power slightly cheaper phones. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 870 is expected to be used to power lower cost smartphones.
The Snapdragon 870 is not quite as powerful as the 888, but its CPU and GPU are about 10% better than the Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm's highest-end chipset for Android phones from the previous year. By comparison, the Snapdragon 888 provides a 25% improvement in CPU and a 35% boost in GPU over the Snapdragon 865. The new Snapdragon 870 "is designed to deliver increased performance across the board for geared-up gameplay," Qualcomm said.
