If you are not a tech-enthusiast, then the chances are that you are probably confused by all that's available in the market and the choices are indeed plenty. This list will help you find the most powerful processors on offer. On the other hand, even if you are a tech-enthusiast, you would appreciate this list as AnTuTu has finally revealed the chipsets that are on the top of the food chain. Keep in mind that most of the processors that are used in mobile phones today were put through the benchmark multiple times before the conclusions were drawn.
As expected, the latest Snapdragon 820 chip from Qualcomm leads the pack with a whopping score of 136383. The Apple A9 chip lags behind ever so slightly at the second position with 132657. The Exynos 8890 chipset powering the international variants of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is in the third position by an even narrower margin with a score of 129865. After that, the difference between the chipsets become much more obvious as the Kirin 950 scored 92746, followed by the older Exynos 7420, which scored 86652. Last year's troubled but powerful flagship processor, the SD 810 still holds its own at the 6th position over the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset. The Apple A8 is in the 8th position with 79100, but the difference between the A8 and the SD 650, which is at number 9 with 78979, is negligible. The Snapdragon 808 from Qualcomm just makes the cut at the last position with a respectable 68508.
As you can see from the list, Qualcomm is absolutely dominating the smartphone market with its mobile CPUs and have even managed to dethrone the mighty Apple A9 chip from its number one position. We will just have to wait and see if Apple can come up with something even better when they release the iPhone 7 later this year.
The S7 will probably be unveiled next month at the MWC, but we still know nothing too definitive about it. There have been multiple rumors and some of them even sound quite convincing, while others are downright conflicting. Amongst this secrecy and confusion, a new report has come in about two Exynos versions of the Samsung flagship being spotted at an Indonesian certification site, which lists the model numbers as Samsung - SM-G930FD and Samsung - SM-G935FD.
The S6 had the model number G920, while the S6 Edge was branded as G925. Therefore, the G930 and the G935 are most likely to be their future counterparts. The letter "F" in G930FD and G935FD almost certainly stands for "Exynos" versions as "A" has traditionally stood for AT&T models and the AT&T models are probably going to sport the Snapdragon 820 chipset. "FD" in the model numbers represent dual SIM capabilities as we saw with the SM-G920FD edition of the S6 last year; which were sold in certain Asian countries like Philippines and Pakistan.
The other rumoured specs of the Galaxy S7 series remains the same as before with alleged Quad High Definition Super AMOLED displays, three screen sizes (5.1", 5.7" and 6"), two screen variations (curved and flat), 12 megapixel Britecell rear cameras, 4GB of RAM, waterproof body, beefier battery, Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and may be even expandable memory!
