The chip features a high-performance Cortex-A77 core running up to 3.2GHz, as compared with the Snapdragon 865's 2.84GHz Cortex-A77 and the 3.13GHz Cortex-A77 in the Kirin 9000. Commercial devices based on Snapdragon 870 are expected to be announced in the first quarter of 2021. It includes an octa-core processor that is based on the Kryo 585 cores, with up to 3.2GHz of clock speeds - a very slight improvement over the 3.1GHz on the Snapdragon 865 Plus. The Snapdragon 870 could be more power efficient, though, resulting in longer battery life on devices that would use it.
Well, sort of. According to product documentation that Qualcomm provided, the Snapdragon 870 is identical to the Snapdragon 865 Plus-line by line. The Snapdragon 870 platform once again incorporates the Snapdragon Elite Gaming experience, which enables "desktop-level rendering" and 'hyper-realistic graphics.' This is coupled with the Adreno 650 GPU and the ability to update GPU drives without updating the operating system.
Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 870 processor.

The new chipset supports Quick Charge 4+ technology. This means that while you've still got Bluetooth 5.2, you've also got Wi-Fi 6 instead of Wi-Fi 6E seen on the Plus chipset. It supports a display of 4K at 60Hz and QHD+ at 144Hz, 10-bit color depth, HDR10, and HDR10+ certifications as well as maximum external display support up to 4K at 60Hz. The SoC allows for up to 200MP capture on the rear and either up to a single 64MP capture or up to 25MP (dual camera) capture on the front. There's slow motion video recording support of up to 720p at 960 FPS. Support for up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM is also present.
