Qualcomm has released updated versions of its processors. The corporation simultaneously presented three Snapdragon mobile chipsets - modifications 632, 439 and 429. Due to their improved characteristics, the new chips are designed to solve more advanced technical problems and increase the competitiveness of Qualcomm itself.
To date, more than 1,300 technical devices are powered by the Snapdragon 600 system, and more than 2,000 gadgets are powered by the Snapdragon 400. New mobile systems, as the manufacturer notes, are designed to introduce modern high-tech functions typical for class devices into mass-market smartphones. premium. These include high performance, long battery life, strong graphics, and the benefits of artificial intelligence.
Flagship Snapdragon 632
The new Snapdragon 632 replaces the previous 626 and boosts performance thanks to the 8-core Kryo 250 system, built from a combination of energy-efficient and high-performance cores, and the Adreno 506 GPU.
The current chipset parameters include 4K video shooting, artificial intelligence functions, high-speed LTE connection (thanks to the built-in Snapdragon X9 modem), enough power to run many popular games. The processor supports displays up to FHD + settings.
The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 platform is developed using innovative FinFET technology and, according to manufacturers, is 40% more efficient than the previous chip version. As additional advantages: ensuring the operation of the main camera up to 24 MP and a block of dual camera modules with a resolution of up to 13 MP each.
The sweet spot - Snapdragon 439
The simpler and less expensive Snapdragon 439 chipset as a replacement for the Snapdragon 430 is designed to increase the smartphone's efficiency by 25%. The system also consists of 8 cores of different order (for performance - at 1.95 GHz and for power saving - at 1.45 GHz).
The use of the Adreno 505 graphical tool increases the efficiency of the new platform when compared to the previously released processor. Model 439 received a Snapdragon X6 LTE modem, the chipset supports cameras up to 21 MP and dual sensor cameras up to 8 MP.
Inexpensive but high quality Snapdragon 429
The most affordable was the new Snapdragon 429, created to replace the Snapdragon 435 chipset, which is widely used by manufacturers of inexpensive smartphones. The new system consists of 4 cores like ARM Cortex-A53, accelerating to 1.95 Hz. According to the developers' data, the chipset provides a quarter performance increase in comparison with the 435th model. The processor device contains the Adreno 504 graphics tool and the X6 LTE modem, which also increase the efficiency of the chip. The processor supports screens up to HD +, a base camera up to 16 MP or a dual main module with two sensors up to 8 MP each.
The updated series of chipsets from Qualcomm have full compatibility in software components, as well as the previous versions 626, 625 and 450. According to the manufacturer itself, the new processors will be released in the second half of this year.
