Snapdragon 898 and Dimensity 2000 specs revealed

The battle is on. Which side are you? Which side are you?

Qualcomm and MediaTek are both slated to release their next-generation flagship products later this year. The two processors, rumored to be called the Snapdragon 898 and the Dimensity 2000, have been making the rounds on the internet for a while now. Digital Chat Station, a well-known Chinese tipster, just disclosed the essential specifications of both future chipsets, which reveal some fascinating features.

The Snapdragon 898 will be built on Samsung’s 4nm fabrication node, according to the report. It will have a single 3.0GHz ARM Cortex-X2 Super Core. Three mid-tier performance cores running at 2.5GHz and four power-efficient CPU cores running at 1.79GHz will be available from Qualcomm. Multiple rumors have stated that these will be ARM’s new Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores based on the V9 architecture. The Adreno 730 GPU will be found in the Snapdragon 898.

The identical CPU core layout will be used by MediaTek. In actuality, the Dimensity 2000 will have the same 1.8GHz base frequency and 3.0GHz maximum frequency as the Snapdragon 898. However, it has a significantly higher clock speed of 2.85GHz for the three Cortex-A710 center cores. The Mali-G710 MC10 GPU will be used in the Dimensity 2000, which will be manufactured on TSMC’s 4nm architecture.

In terms of CPU performance, these figures show that MediaTek will have a tiny advantage over Qualcomm. However, current estimates suggest that the Dimensity 2000 could be 20 to 25% more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 898. If the reports are genuine, MediaTek might give its American competitor a run for their money.

Qualcomm didn’t have a serious challenger in the top smartphone SoC market a few years ago. Samsung’s Exynos chipsets have historically underperformed Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets, and MediaTek’s products are no exception. The Taiwanese company had stepped away from the flagship market for a few years before returning in 2019 with the Dimensity range.

However, in recent years, things have begun to shift. Samsung made a few tactical changes, such as switching from bespoke Mongoose CPU cores to stock ARM cores. It also announced a collaboration with AMD to utilize AMD’s rDNA 2 graphics architecture in mobile chipsets. Things are looking up for the Korean corporation currently. With its next Exynos 2200 flagship CPU, it may finally be able to compete with Qualcomm.

However, MediaTek, the world’s top smartphone chipset provider by market share, could become Qualcomm’s true rival. Since re-entering the flagship market a few years ago, the Taiwanese company has drastically reduced the performance gap between itself and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon competitors. And, if rumors are to be believed, the difference between the future Dimensity 2200 and Snapdragon 898 could be insignificant. Perhaps the balance will shift in MediaTek’s favor.

Nonetheless, the chip battles are heating up, and we’re looking forward to seeing what the businesses have planned. In the coming weeks, you can expect to learn more about Samsung, Qualcomm, and MediaTek’s future solutions.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: Here’s what you need to know

Is this the best option if you want a phone that also functions as a small tablet?

Published

on

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was revolutionary when it was originally introduced in 2019. Even though the overall formula hasn’t altered dramatically three generations later, Samsung has greatly improved it. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the most advanced foldable produced by the firm to date thanks to those years of improvement.

On August 10, 2022, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 was released as part of the summer season of Galaxy Unpacked events. The general sale date was set for August 26 and preorders began that day. At the same event, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Watch 5, and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is simply a more refined version of the company’s already-proven formula. The new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC upgrades both the processor and cameras. The design has been slightly modified to provide a little bit more screen real estate, better durability, and an all-around more attractive grip. The experience is further enhanced by some new software techniques and new colors.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 doesn’t significantly change from its predecessors overall. As usual, it seems to be a “regular” smartphone when folded, although a rather thick one. However, if you open it up like a book, a sizable foldable display is revealed. When you need more space, the inner display lets you use it like a tablet, while the outer display lets you use it like a regular smartphone.

There is hardly any competition for Samsung in the foldables market. The competition it does have—from Motorola, Oppo, Xiaomi, and a few other companies—cannot compete with Samsung’s global presence. In North America, you have two options if you want a foldable phone: a Samsung “fold” type phone or a Samsung “flip” style phone.

In light of this, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is currently the greatest foldable smartphone available worldwide. It has many advantages over the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and is more powerful and capable than the Galaxy Z Fold 3 from a year ago. If you want a folding smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the best one you can get right now.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 not only has some of the best hardware on the market, but it also boasts the best software commitment of any foldable available. Samsung will send security updates for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 for five years and four Android upgrades, making it a good long-term investment.

Obviously, this phone is pricey. A used or refurbished Galaxy Z Fold 3 could be a better choice if you can’t afford the minimum price of $1,799. A Galaxy Z Flip 4 is another option and starts at $999. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is now the best option if you want a phone that also functions as a small tablet.
