Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 Announced For Mid-Range Smartphones

Qualcomm launches Snapdragon 675, a mid-range chip designed for mobile gaming

Incidentally, this is the first processor to be manufactured on the 11nm fabrication process. The only area where the Snapdragon 675 may be considered as a lower-end chipset (seemingly justifying its mid-range credentials) is in the manufacturing process. Qualcomm Technologies also supports popular tools and APIs, including Vulkan, OpenGL 3.2, OpenCL, and Snapdragon profiler.

At the ongoing Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong, the company announced the all-new Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform.

While high-end devices in the smartphone industry, like the Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup, LG G7 ThinQ, and Google Pixel, are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845, the company is introducing a mid-range chip that can support the premium qualities that are no long exclusive to these flagship phones.

Speaking of octa-core Kryo 460 that has is present in the SoC, it is probably the biggest update in the Snapdragon 675 processor. This latest processor is an upgrade of the Snapdragon 670 processor that had launched this year. Through heterogenous computing, the Hexagon DSP, Adreno GPU, and Kryo CPU- are engineered to work cooperatively to run AI applications on-device faster and more efficiently. In simple words, the chipset's performance CPUs are based on the new Cortex A76 cores.

Embiid on Drummond: 'I own real estate in his head'
Drummond responded by referencing Embiid's inability to stay healthy and play in back-to-back games in the past. With just over 40 seconds left in the game, Embiid scored a bucket over Drummond to put the Sixers up, 120-118.

One of the highlights belonging to the Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform is its multi-core AI engine which improves the performance of AI applications by almost 50 percent. This wasn't possible with the earlier Spectra 250, even though it could already connect up to six different cameras in any configuration. HD slo-motion recording and playback is offered at 480fps. Manufacturers can include a single 25MP shooter, 16MP dual rear cameras and up to 48MP snapshot.

The new Snapdragon 675 is available to the manufacturers but the devices with Snapdragon 675 SoC are expected to launch in the first half of the year 2019. Naturally, the System-on-Chip also supports the AI that has become innately tied with cameras too.

The Snapdragon 675 will allow many more smartphones to offer advanced imaging capabilities with telephoto, wide-angle, and super-wide angle modules.

On the connectivity side, it features 802.11ac 2×2 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, and the Snapdragon X12 LTE modem for 600Mbps (Cat 15) downlink and 150Mbps (Cat 13) uplink.
