Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 778G, Snapdragon 695 5G, Snapdragon 480+ 5G and Snapdragon 680 4G, new SoCs for the midrange on October 26 (local time).
Both the Snapdragon 778+ 5G and 480+ 5G are minor updates to the 778G 5G and 480 5G. The CPU and GPU performance were raised, the 778G+ 5G increased the CPU clock from 2.4GHz to 2.5GHz, and the 480+ increased the CPU clock from 2GHz to 2.2GHz.
The Snapdragon 695 5G is the successor to the Snapdragon 690 5G. In addition to changing the manufacturing process to 6nm, CPU performance increased by 15% and GPU performance by 30%. In addition, it is a SoC with specifications that are likely to increase adoption in mid-range terminals in the future, such as responding to millimeter wave, unlike the Snapdragon 690, which only supports sub 6GHz among 5G.
Finally, the Snapdragon 680 is the only SoC with an LTE modem in this announcement. It uses a 6nm manufacturing process and can use a strong triple camera in low light with enhanced AI for games and AI. This model assumes a market where 5G is not yet available and there is a high demand for low-cost products even if 5G is widely distributed.
All four types of SoCs are scheduled to ship in the fourth quarter of 2021 and will be put into terminals such as HMD Global, Honor, Motorola, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi. Related information can be found here.
