Snapdragon 855 vs Exynos 9820 vs Kirin 980

By Robert Triggs

Three major smartphone SoC designers have now detailed their next-generation designs, which will power smartphones throughout 2019. Huawei was first with its Kirin 980, already powering the Huawei Mate 20 series. Samsung followed, announcing its Exynos 9820. Now Qualcomm’s just announced the Snapdragon 855.

As usual, a selection of performance improvements are on offer in both the CPU and GPU department. There’s also a continued focus on “AI” processing capabilities and faster 4G LTE connectivity, but no out-of-the-box 5G chip on the market just yet. If you’re thinking about an expensive smartphone purchase next year, here’s everything you need to know about the chipsets that will power them.
