Snapdragon 855 processor GPU is powered by Adreno 640, which is said to be 20% faster than its predecessor Snapdragon 845, Its GPU is capable of playing Volumetric VR video playback, and 8K 360 VR video playback, and can handle high-end 3D games easily.

The Snapdragon 855 comes with faster LPDDR4X RAM clocked at 2133MHz, 
Yes, the processors also needs RAMs too. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Supports 5G, but it needs external 5G modem to work, because it doesn’t have any inbuilt 5G supported modem. 

It Comes with X24 4G Cat.20 LTE modem that supports up to 2Gbps download speeds and up to 316Mbps upload speeds.

Snapdragon 855 chipset features an integrated dual-14-bit Spectra 380 ISP which can support up to 20MP dual-camera setup or up to a 32MP single camera. This ISP can also record videos up to 4K resolution at 60fps with HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG HDR formats. It also supports slow-motion videos resolution of 720p recording at 480fps.


Snapdragon 855 have various Connectivity options which includes Wi-Fi ad/ay/ac/b/g/n (Wi-Fi 6-ready), Bluetooth 5.0 (aptX, aptX LL, aptX HD), GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS and USB 3.1 Type-C port. It also supports Quick Charge 4+ fast charging technology. It also comes with dedicated AI cores which is going to process all future AI based feature to run and process Smoothly.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Performance analysis

Snapdragon 855 processor’s CPU design arrangements is very interesting, its cores are divided there three segments that is 1+3+4. This is because, while switching from one core to another core there is a slight lag or stall can be seen in devices, to strike out that problem this design comes into existence.

This design also helps in very low power consumption, because one Prime core is there to handle most of the tasks, the others remain inactive to consume less power. The other three cores come into work only when the load exceeds, and to perform lag free heavy gamings all cores work together if needed.

By this method of the core division helps in best smooth performance and very low battery consumption by Snapdragon 855 processor.
