Secondly, A77 may hit higher peak performance but the power efficiency of A77 and A76 on 7nm is practically identical. I'd argue that they could decrease the core frequencies of the A77 to offer better efficiency and similar performance.

I kinda expected this, them using the same CPU and GPU generation from its predecessors based on the rumours. A rather..small improvement. Its Kirin 970 case all over again. Even Mediatek's Helio M70 and Exynos 980 will use the next-gen A77. Huhu.

8K30 ❤ wow but im expecting for EIS or OIS to not work with it coz its first time thing. Overall its having bold claims over Snapdragon 855. Like to see it in effect soon.

Dealler, 06 Sep 2019Apple is not working on anything, they do not manufacture.*Sighs*

Here we go. Say it with me - woo-sa! REPEAT.

I never said MANUFACTURED, but I did say working (e.g. planning, discussing, designing).

In 5-year you say?

I would say less than 3-years.
