mobile processor comparison, top smartphone processor 2019, qualcomm snapdragon, Exynos 9820

Basically, the mobile phone is made by ARM / CORTEX architecture. There are several manufacturers like Snapdragon, MediaTek, Exynos by SamsungNvidia Tegra, Apple, Intel and few. They manufacture the processors the type of the processors simply depends on the NUMBER OF CORES like dual, quad, octa. Mobile

Processor comparison is done to know about the performance and efficiency of the processor. We will be discussing and comparing top flagship processors including Apple A12 bionic, Huawei Kirin 980, Samsung Exynos 9820 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 in brief and listing top Smartphone Processor 2019.

Apple-designed CPU- Two performance cores tackle heavy computational tasks, and four efficiency cores take on everyday tasks. There newest performance controller dynamically divides work access to these cores, harnessing all six when a power boost is needed.


2 performance cores: Up to 15% faster than A11 Bionic.
4 efficiency cores: Up to 50% lower power usage than A11 Bionic.



Apple-designed GPU: A new fourth core and lossless memory compression big gains in graphics performance to games, video, editing, and visually demanding apps.
4-core GPU: Graphics performance Up to 50% faster than A11 Bionic.


Similarities between A12 Bionic and Kirin 980

There are many similarities between Apple A12 bionic and Huawei Kirin 980 processor. They both have got 7 nm processor. Both the processor have a neural-processing unit, and they both made a big thing about the power of this neuro-processing unit.  



Differences between A12 Bionic and Kirin 980

The big difference is Apple is using their own designed cores and Huawei is using cores designed by ARM, and Huawei Kirin 980 is an octa-core processor whereas Apple A12 bionic is a hexacore processor.
Apple also says that there are two higher performance cores in Apple A12 bionic chip that will actually work 15% better than A11 and it looks like the four energy efficient cores are remaining exactly the same, they are more efficient and that is mainly due to moving down to 7-nm.


Powered Smartphones 

Smartphones powered with A12 Bionic include iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR.

Smartphones powered with Kirin 980 include Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Huawei P30 Pro.

Exynos 9820 

  • The Exynos 9820 is manufactured using an 8-nm processor from Samsung which is expected to give a 10% power boost and efficiency boost as compared to a 10-nm chip. Exynos 9820 is an octa-core processor, with three different groups of processors that run at different speeds. It includes two custom-designed M4 processors, two Cortex-A75 processors from Arm, four energy-efficient Cortex A-55 cores.
  • The Exynos 9820 comes with a 12-core Mali-G76 GPU which is expected to have a 35-40% increase in gaming performance as compared to 18-core Mali-G72 that we find in Exynos 9810
  • Exynos 9820 is accompanied by the inclusion of an NPU a Neural Processing Unit.
