Galaxy S9 will be faster than iPhone X?

Samsung Galaxy S9
Samsung Galaxy S9 is rumored to be relying on a new processor with a performance much higher than that pinned on Android smartphones on the market today. However, if the performance is also more qualified than the 10nm A11 Bionic processor embedded on the iPhone X?

Samsung itself has not much spit information about the Galaxy S9. But the South Korean manufacturer said it is ready to produce chips with 8nm processing technology.

"Qualification has been completed three months ahead of schedule and we are ready to accept orders for 8 nanometer (nm) 8LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET process technology," it said on the official Samsung Newsroom website.
Allegedly the 8nm chipset will be first installed on the Galaxy S9. There is also a report calling Snapdragon 845 to be exclusively present in the Galaxy S9 as its debut. Qualcomm, the maker of Snapdragon, is an old chip-making partner at Samsung's factory facility.

Not yet clear whether Snapdragon 845 will be processed using 8nm technology or not. Clearly, 8LPP technology is an improvement over the previous 10nm processing.
"The 8nm chip provides better performance and scalability than a 10nm processing-based chip," said Senior VP Qualcomm, RK Chunduru.

The 8nm chip is expected to be 10 percent more power-efficient than a 10nm chipset. Increased speed can not be predicted because it is too early to talk about benchmarks. Currently iPhone X is crowned as the highest performing phone by benchmark performance measurement app makers, even beating the premium Android phones.
