The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 comes out swinging on Geekbench
A new Geekbench 5 entry shows that Vivo is working on a smartphone with the model number 'V2056A'. According to the listing, the V2056A has a next-generation Qualcomm chipset. Based on previous leaks, it seems that the V2056A has a Snapdragon 888, which Qualcomm announced yesterday. There are now several listings on Geekbench with 'lahaina' motherboards, of which the V2056A is one. Additionally, the chipset can be identified as the 'ARM implementer 65 architecture 8 variant 1 part 3396 revision 0'.
Geekbench also tells us that the V2056A has 12 GB of RAM and is running Android 11, which one should expect from a new flagship smartphone. The listing offers an insight into the performance of the Snapdragon 888 too, albeit only a limited one at this stage. The new chipset appears to have a 25% faster single-core performance than the Snapdragon 865, for example, along with an 11% advantage in multi-core tasks.
According to Geekbench, at least Vivo, OnePlus and Samsung have Snapdragon 888-powered smartphones in development. Realme and Xiaomi have confirmed that they do too, as has Motorola. Qualcomm has confirmed that 13 OEMs have already pledged to release smartphones containing the Snapdragon 888 though, as we have also reported.
