Qualcomm’s Lahaina test platform has been spotted in the Geekebench benchmark database. Lahaina, we recall, is the codename for the SoC Snapdragon 888, but the specifications point to another SoC – Snapdragon 888 Pro, rumors about which appeared several months ago. What is the difference between the Snapdragon 888 Pro and the regular Snapdragon 888?
By and large, the differences are minimal – in the spirit of Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865 Plus. It’s just that the frequency of the large Arm Cortex-X1 core was raised from 2.84 GHz to 3.0 GHz. The other seven cores work at the same frequency as the Snapdragon 888. Not surprisingly, the performance of the Snapdragon 888 Pro and Snapdragon 888 are the same – the overclocking is too low to have a qualitative impact on the performance of the entire SoC.
The official premiere of Snapdragon 888 Pro will most likely take place in the third quarter. This SoC is expected to be used in the new flagships of Honor and Xiaomi.
