Popular benchmarking software Antutu’s July 2023 performance rankings for the Chinese market are in, listing the best-performing Android phones in the flagship and sub-flagship categories.
American chipmaker Qualcomm has introduced a 5G chipset that’s meant for smartphones that cost $200 (around P11,097) or less — and we might just see it commercially launched soon.
Qualcomm has announced a new chipset for sub-flagship or upper-midrange devices, the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 2. Curiously, the chip maker has skipped the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 1 and Snapdragon 7 Gen 2 monikers for the Snapdragon 7 successor, which it says is its “most powerful 700-series yet.”
In December 2022, iQOO units dominated Antutu‘s lists of best-performing flagship, sub-premium, and midrange Android smartphones released in ChIna. Which models made it to the January 2023 rankings?
Antutu has released its latest rankings of flagship, sub-premium, and midrange Android smartphones released in China that performed well on the platform.
Qualcomm has announced the successor to 2021’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, following the launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform for flagship devices.
Popular benchmark app Antutu has posted the most recent lists of best-performing Android smartphones released in China. So, which flagship, sub-flagship, and midrange devices figured in the September 2022 rankings?
Antutu’s most recent performance rankings of Android smartphones released in China, which feature the best-performing handsets in the flagship, sub-flagship, and midrange categories, is now out.
Qualcomm has unveiled the follow-up to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, aptly calling its latest — and now, most powerful — chipset yet, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1.
MediaTek remains the top mobile chipmaker for the fourth and final quarter of 2021, according to market-research firm Counterpoint Research.
MediaTek did it again. Counterpoint Research recently posted its quarterly report on smartphone chipset shipments, and the results showed MediaTek leading Qualcomm in the quarter July to September 2021.
New chip, new name. The latest and greatest Snapdragon chipset yet, which was announced at the Snapdragon Tech Summit, also introduces the brand-new naming scheme Qualcomm will be using in its chip business moving forward.
A Taiwanese company is still the biggest smartphone chip maker in the world.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 is easily the most powerful chipset we’ve ever tested to date. It can run anything you throw at it without really breaking a sweat. And as we’ve noted time and again in our reviews, such as our test of the ASUS ROG Phone 5, its benchmark scores are much higher than its flagship competition.
Apparently, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, which debuted on the Xiaomi Mi 11, won’t be the only Snapdragon 800 series chipset to get some love from smartphone manufacturers this year. Something less powerful — but possibly no less appealing — just dropped today.
A few days after sharing the Chinese market’s rankings for December, Antutu Benchmark this time revealed the list of best-performing flagship and midrange Android phones released globally.
Qualcomm announced its flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset earlier this month, and the 5nm chip is expected to power many of tomorrow’s top-end devices — some variants of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 series included. Xiaomi, OPPO, and Realme will launch their own Snapdragon 888-based devices as well.
Qualcomm’s next-flagship chipset is not called Snapdragon 765, as many expected; it’s Snapdragon 888, representing a number considered lucky in China.
Huawei‘s smartphone business is still in a pickle amid a trade dispute between the United States and China, which has left one of the world’s largest smartphone vendors without access to global chip suppliers, for one.
MediaTek and Kirin chipsets may be dominating in the midrange category, but the flagship space is still Qualcomm’s territory, as seen in the more recent Antutu Benchmark rankings. And it looks like its reign won’t end soon.
