    Overall, the benchmark scores give a promising picture of the new chipset. Note that synthetic tests do not necessarily tell how a device will perform on a day-to-day basis as users’ preferences and behaviour vary. Qualcomm also suggests the same as it says, “Benchmark results may vary between the Snapdragon 888 reference design and future commercial devices due to differences in performance settings, storage components, display refresh rates, timing of software updates, and more.”

    Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processors are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2021. Already a bunch of smartphone companies have confirmed plans to launch devices with the latest chipset. These include Xiaomi’s Mi 11, Realme Race, and Oppo Find X3.
