These mobile phone masters you are not familiar with are the real model workers in the industry

In the history of the development of smart phones, there has been a phenomenon of “core only” for a while. At that time, many manufacturers only used the number of CPU cores and the main frequency of mobile phone SOC as the basis for equipment performance publicity, and once made a lot of jokes. < p > < p > to tell the truth, the “core only theory” is of course wrong, because it deliberately ignores a series of factors such as CPU architecture, memory performance, system optimization, thermal design, etc., which have a great impact on the performance experience of mobile phones. However, the reason why core only theory became popular at that time was to tell us that consumers began to pay attention to the core hardware configuration of mobile phones for a long time, and understood the importance of good master control scheme for the use of mobile phones. < / P > < p > because of this, when it comes to 2020, when smartphone manufacturers are promoting new products, almost all of them will focus on the detailed information of the mobile platform they use. Whether it’s the flagship snapdragon 865, Tianji 1000 +, or the medium and high-end Qilin 985 and exynos980, as long as you pay attention to this market, basically, the detailed parameters of the current mainstream mobile phone master control may have been known by heart. < / P > < p > but even so, in the smart phone market in 2020, there are still some mobile phone master control schemes. Some of them have become a force that can not be ignored, some are changing the competition pattern of the market, and some are even regarded as important tomorrow’s stars. But one of their common characteristics is that they are rarely recognized by the mainstream consumer groups. So today, we’d like to take a look at the mobile phone master in 2020, which has its own characteristics but is not well known. < / P > < p > when it comes to MediaTek in 2020, most friends may first think of the dimension Tianji series, which is now in full swing. As a 5g SOC product line with the same level of advanced process, superior performance, powerful baseband, and brilliant price, MediaTek’s Tianji 720, Tianji 820 and Tianji 1000 + have achieved excellent market performance in their respective price segments. However, because of this, it almost overtook all the previous product lines of MediaTek, and made p95, which might have assumed the title of “final form” of Helio Xili P series, ended up in an embarrassing situation that was used but nobody knew. What is Xili p95? It is the latest and the most advanced smartphone SOC launched by MediaTek’s Helio P series product line at the end of February this year. As a follow-up model of P90, p95 adopts a 12NM process, equipped with a CPU cluster composed of two 2.2GHz A75 cores and six 2GHz A55 small cores, as well as a positioning midrange powervr gm9446 GPU and a dual channel lpddr4x memory controller. Compared with P90, p95’s integrated APU architecture and performance are slightly improved. In addition to the integrated dual band WiFi 5 + Bluetooth 5.0 function, the not low specification 4×4 MIMO, three carrier aggregation 4G all network pass baseband should be regarded as a fairly high-end and balanced medium and high-end 4G SOC. < p > < p > it’s a pity that 5g’s popularity is far faster than most people think. In addition, even entry-level products have begun to promote game performance as an important selling point. As a result, it does not support 5g, and its GPU performance is not particularly strong Xili p95, so it is reduced to playing a marginal role in soy sauce in some markets. < / P > < p > What’s more, when we carefully analyze the technical improvement of Xili p95 relative to the old model, we will find that one of its selling points is the hyperengine game optimization technology of MediaTek. However, this technology should actually be a feature of Xili G series with higher GPU configuration and Tianji series positioning 5g high-end product line. So why does Xili p95 have the game optimization technology that shouldn’t belong to it? < / P > < p > one possibility is that MediaTek intends to enhance the market competitiveness of Xili P series, so it introduces game optimization technology on G series. But in this way, it will lead to the fuzzy division of their product line, which is unfavorable to the market competition. Another possibility is that the p95 may have been the final model of the P series, so slightly enhancing its game performance will not threaten the layout of its own product line. < / P > < p > in fact, since February this year, MediaTek has never launched a new Xili P series SOC. Instead, it has launched a number of Xili G series new products. This seems to imply that the 4G master control scheme of MediaTek in the future will be the G series which emphasizes the game performance. Xili p95, this “untimely” product, may really become the best performance of the United Development Technology P series. < / P > < p > all the friends who are concerned about our Sanyi life may know that compared with the rapid development and frequent technological changes of the flagship and high-end markets, the entry-level smartphone market can not be described as “dancing with all sorts of demons”. < / P > < p > on the one hand, the low cost means that the 100 yuan model can only use the hardware scheme of two or even three years ago, and many models will still stay in the four core era by 2020. < / P > < p > on the other hand, the medium and high-end smart phone market is stimulated by 5g upgrading, and the technology development speed is extremely fast in the past year. Reflected in the products, it is the rapid popularization of high refresh rate screen, AI accelerated processing, WiFi 6, and high-power fast charging technology. < / P > < p > in this way, it means that the gap in technology and experience between entry-level smart phones of 100 yuan level and mainstream products of 1000 yuan level or above is widening. This is not conducive to the popularization and promotion of smart phones, but also has a huge negative impact on the software industry. If mainstream mobile apps want to ensure the smooth experience of entry-level models, it means that they may not be able to give full play to the advantages of new hardware; but if developers focus on optimizing mainstream 5g models, it means that the most basic device experience will be directly abandoned. < / P > < p > because of this, the release of the Qualcomm snapdragon 460 at the beginning of this year is worthy of our attention and expectation. After all, compared with snapdragon 430 / 439 and Xili A22 / P22, which are “dominating” in the 100 yuan market, the snapdragon 460 is much better in terms of technology and performance. First of all, it has built-in snapdragon CPU with a 4-band core of < 460.3 nm, and the highest frequency is achieved with a quad core of < 460.8u. Looking at the process or architecture alone, the snapdragon 460 may not be comparable with the current 7Nm a77 flagship. But if you know that it will replace many of the 8-core or even 4-core A53 solutions with around 1.4GHz, you will understand how much performance improvement the snapdragon 460 has compared with its "predecessors". < / P > < p > secondly, in terms of peripheral function configuration, the snapdragon 460 is a spectra 340 ISP with dual band WiFi 5 + Bluetooth 5.1 and built-in 14bit color depth processing capability. It even added the hexagon 683 DSP with AI accelerator to the entry-level solution for the first time. You know, the Tianji 720 and Tianji 800u 5g SOC of next door united development technology do not have independent AI accelerators, so although the CPU architecture of the snapdragon 460 is not advanced, its photo taking function and AI computing power are undoubtedly the strongest among its peers. From this point of view, it is really expected to narrow the gap between the entry-level smart phones and the low-end products of the thousand yuan class, so as to alleviate the “old age and chaotic dance” situation of the 100 yuan machine. < / P > < p > as the world’s largest and only consumer electronics manufacturer with the ability to design its own architecture, produce chips and make mobile phones by itself, Samsung’s name is very famous in the mobile phone industry. However, the exynos chip solutions developed by themselves mainly relied on “internal digestion” for a long time in the past, and even for external supply, only a few brands adopted them. < / P > < p > but those who follow Samsung may know that this has changed by the end of 2019. At that time, Samsung for the first time provided vivo with a high-end 5g SOC solution, exynos 980, by way of in-depth cooperation. After a while, the exynos 880, which may be the most advanced midrange 5g chip solution based on exynos 980, was also used in vivo’s family friendly 5g model. However, although the name of the exynos 850 is not different from that of the exynos 880, its market and performance positioning may be quite different from that of the exynos 880. Because this is a high-performance solution aimed at the entry-level market, its direct competitor should be the snapdragon 460 mentioned above. < / P > < p > Why do we say “Introduction to positioning” of exynos 850? First of all, because it does not adopt a large core CPU architecture, it chooses a 4 + 4 CPU cluster composed of eight A55 small cores with the highest frequency of 2GHz. Secondly, according to the information disclosed at present, the ISP of exynos 850 is only suitable for 21.7 megapixel CMOS, which is also the most powerful evidence for its positioning as an entry-level product. We should know that even if it is a new machine with a thousand yuan or so, the main camera has 48 million pixels. < / P > < p > however, although it is positioned as an entry-level solution, exynos 850 has 8nm process advantages and A55 CPU architecture advantages compared with other entry-level solutions. We should know that although the A55 is a “small core”, according to arm, the same frequency performance of the A55 has reached twice that of the A53, and it also has a 15% energy efficiency advantage. This means that the performance of eight core A55 is not necessarily inferior to that of A73 + A53. Not to mention the cross generational process advantages of exynos 850, it may also bring significant energy efficiency improvements. This may become a very obvious selling point in the entry-level aircraft which focuses on endurance performance. < / P > < p > if you usually pay more attention to the relevant contents of our three changes life, you may already understand the reason why these smart phone chip solutions we talked about today are “unknown”. < / P > < p > Yes, they are not 5g solutions. In the jubilant “5g popularization year” in 2020, the new 4G SOC will not get the attention of the media and the market. They are not flagship solutions. As entry-level smart phone chips that are popular and cheap, they lack enough “eye-catching” performance indicators, and their own attention is not so high. < / P > < p > but because of these, we can say that these “dull” and “not advanced” smartphone chip solutions are unnecessary? Of course not, because it is them, not the 5g chips with a higher positioning, that really carry the responsibility of promoting the smartphone experience, promoting digital life, allowing more people to get information dividends and improving the efficiency of social operation. < / P > < p > it’s like supporting roles in a movie. Maybe they are not as handsome and shining as some stars, but everyone knows that without the efforts of the supporting actors, the story can’t go on. Straight screen S20!
