Here’s Why the Upcoming LG Nexus 5X Comes with Snapdragon 808
You may be aware that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810 processors were announced last year. Since then the processors have been slowly making its way into smartphones, with LG G4 being the first smartphone to use the Snapdragon 808. The recent China-only Xiaomi Mi 4c also sports the 808 as its SoC and the upcoming Nexus 5X will feature the same.
But what exactly does the Snapdragon 808 deliver? We’ve decided to provide a deeper understanding into the specs of the processor to show just what it is capable of delivering.
Right off the bat, the Snapdragon 808 features a high performing CPU that clocks in around 2000 MHz, with 6 cores that result in faster mutli-tasking. The processor is also able to reduce energy consumption as it couples slower, low power processor cores with faster, high-power processor cores. The big or faster cores are used for computation-intensive tasks such as gaming.
The GPU is a significant upgrade from the previous 801 processor. While the 801 had an Adreno 330 GPU, the 808 features an Adreno 418 GPU, which delivers better graphics by creating larger blocks of data. Some of the devices that feature the Snapdragon 808 are LG G4, LG Nexus 5X, Xiaomi Mi Edge, and Xiaomi Mi 4c to name a few. Here’s a spec table that will tell you all you need to know about the Snapdragon 808 processor.
