On the other hand, it takes some time to polish new technologies and processes. For example, the under-screen camera, which was very popular last year, has reached mass production, but it still faces many problems, such as stacking and reconstruction of rear lenses. cooling, etc.
Therefore, in addition to February and March, August and September are the most concentrated time for new technologies to be unveiled. While looking forward to it, let’s take a look at Mobile Update’s July Android mobile phone cost-effectiveness list, and take a look at the upcoming new technology. The flagship release, which models are on the list in the first half of the year.
The time for data statistics is from July 1st to July 31st, 2021. The results in the list are the average scores instead of the highest scores, and the data statistics of a single model are > 1000. If a single model has multiple The storage capacity version is on the list, and the version with the highest score is the main one.
In terms of flagships, the No. 1 Black Shark gaming phone 4 Pro is still “not about martial arts”, with an average score of 854439. Those who are familiar with the performance list should know that the reason why it is not about martial arts is because the The memory performance of the phone is really strong, and this time is no exception. It is the most prominent among all mobile phones, and has been ranked first on the list for several consecutive months.
The reason is the hardware advantage. The Black Shark 4 Pro is equipped with a combination of SSD+UFS 3.1 flash memory. It is quite rare to plug an SSD into a mobile phone. Such a radical must increase a lot of cost and body weight, and the main function is to improve the game. The loading speed does not seem to be of great practical use. At present, only the Black Shark 4 Pro adopts this scheme.
The Red Magic gaming phone 6 Pro followed closely behind, with an average score of 831163. Like the Black Shark, this phone is also a model that takes a different approach for performance. Although the configuration is basically the same as other phones, the Red Magic 6 Pro There is a real small fan built in, and the internal structure of the fuselage is completely for fan service, dissipating heat as much as possible.
This unconventional cooling solution fully utilizes the performance of the Snapdragon 888. In exchange, the CPU and GPU of the Snapdragon 888 are at the forefront of all mobile phones. It can be seen from this that gaming phones pursue absolute performance. In order to achieve their goals, they do not hesitate to sacrifice body weight and beautiful appearance, so it is normal to be in the forefront.
The third place is OnePlus 9 Pro, with an average score of 822338. As early as the beginning of the release, the author found that after the phone was replaced with ColorOS for OnePlus, the performance algorithm has also been readjusted. It is not obvious in daily use, but it starts to run points. After that, the performance scheduling seems a bit “violent”. For example, when the Mobile Update Review is opened, the system will automatically clean up the background and restore it to the best state regardless of whether the score is running or not.
Others on the list are all powered by the Snapdragon 888. Overall, there is not much difference. For the current Android performance, apart from overclocking and finding new ways, the highest running score is around 810,000.
Next is the performance ranking of Android mid-range mobile phones. There are no new phones released recently, and the ranking has not changed much compared to the previous issue. However, in terms of processors, compared to the flagship Snapdragon 888, the mid-range is more optional. Qualcomm , MediaTek, and Kirin are on the list.
In terms of mid-range, the top one is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition, equipped with Snapdragon 780G, with an average score of 531,960. In the previous official publicity, Snapdragon 780G was called “Little 888” because it followed the flagship product Snapdragon. The characteristics of the 888, such as the same 5nm process, is also a 1+3+4 architecture, with stable performance.
However, such a chip is currently out of print, and the news has also been confirmed by Xiaomi executives, confirming that the production capacity of the Snapdragon 780G is not enough, and no new phones will be equipped in the follow-up. It is a pity that this chip is, after all, the mid-range Not much, not to mention the 5nm flagship process.
The second and third places are the Honor 50 series, both of which are equipped with the Snapdragon 778G processor. The average scores are 507095 and 500637 in order. Comparing the results, the gap between the Snapdragon 778G and the Snapdragon 780G is not big. Both have the A78 core blessing. The main difference is the process technology, which in turn affects the power consumption. From a theoretical point of view, the Snapdragon 780G with the 5nm process consumes less power and saves more power.
From the current point of view, there should be few new mid-range chips launched in the second half of the year. The reason is still lack of cores. In this case, we have to give priority to ensuring the flagship production capacity.
Speaking of flagships, in addition to Qualcomm’s annual update of the Snapdragon 8 series, MediaTek’s high-end flagships are also scheduled, announcing the launch of the first 5G flagship chip at the end of this year, using ARM’s latest flagship core and TSMC’s 4nm process, which is expected to be compatible with the Snapdragon 898. Wrist wrestling.
In the past two years, MediaTek has turned around with the Dimensity series for all to see. After the mid-to-high-end has an advantage, it is a matter of course to develop to the flagship. Let’s make a bold guess. Next year’s Android mobile phone performance list is no longer the world of Qualcomm processors, and maybe there is still a place for MediaTek. .
In terms of mobile phones, different from the silent July, many new phones will be released in August, such as Xiaomi’s annual flagship that has been rumored, as well as the iQOO 8 series and the Honor Magic 3 series that have begun to warm up, will all debut one by one.
