Now, what you would be interested in is the fact that how is the Snapdragon 845 as compared to the Snapdragon 835 processor which is on the phones of 2017.

As a reminder, Samsung usually puts its own Exynos chipset in the global version of its flagship, while the USA variants are traditionally flaunting Qualcomm's top chipset. The new chip also shows substantial gains around 14-31% in most GPU performance tests, showing particularly impressive leaps in the domains of texturing and ALU performance, along with reduced driver overhead. The Galaxy S9 can be seen running on Android 8.0 and the SoC is coupled with 4 GB of RAM. They're both 10nm chipsets, but the 9810 uses four custom Samsung cores, four smaller ARM Cortex-A55 cores, and an ARM GPU, while the Snapdragon uses four ARM Cortex-A75 derivative cores, four A55 derivatives and a custom GPU.

According to Anandtech's testing, future smartphone buyers can expect performance boosts of 17-44% in most CPU-bound tasks when compared to the Snapdragon 835.

Qualcomm unveiled its latest SoC Snapdragon 845 back in December previous year. Notably, the new chipset will feature 4k HDR video capture and improved AI processing. Since the new Chipset is created to power in the high-end smartphones, it has to offer the best of GPU. Apple's latest flagships also come with the same GPU which offers rich graphical interface on the device.

The upcoming flagship devices from different smartphone makers are anticipated to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

Samsung is now the biggest smartphone manufacturer on the Android side of things so having it under partnership with Qualcomm means that the company is going to stay relevant in the market for years to come.

The company has used MWC to launch a number of its flagship devices in the past - with one exception in last year's Galaxy S8. In particular, the rumor mill predicts that Samsung will probably show off its Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9 phones in Barcelona.

Not surprisingly, a new benchmark has surfaced and it reveals the performance of the Exynos 9810 and to add a little spice to the entire result, it has faced off against the Snapdragon 845.

Apart from the speed of the Snapdragon 845, it is also interesting to note that the Snapdragon 845 is also very power efficient which is very helpful in consuming battery life.
