Come 2019 we might find it so difficult to differentiate a cheap smartphone from an expensive one all thanks to Qualcomm. Qualcomm is bringing premium quality processors to a wide – range of users at no cost. Now you can get affordable smartphones without sacrificing performance with the launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor.
Premium Smartphones Will Launch at Cheap Prices Because of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 comes with A.I capabilities, performance enhancement and also perfect for everyday consumer experience. “The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform is the first in the newly defined and highly significant 700-tier, offering technologies and features previously only available in our premium-tier mobile platforms,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. on Qualcomm
Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 series
Flashback to February 2018 at the MWC where Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 700 mobile platform series. The series was designed to deliver quality performances which were exclusive to expensive phones only. But now this is a very good news for smartphone users because it is a win-win situation. Not a case of the bigger your wallet, the better the quality and vice versa. It is more powerful than the Snapdragon 660 SoC and just a little behind SD 845.
Things The New Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Should Feature
The Snapdragon 810 is built on 10nm architecture, which means you’re going to get both performance improvements and better battery life. The phone is supposed to be 20% faster than the Snapdragon 660, and deliver 25% faster web browsing. Also, 15% faster app launch times compared to the previous mid-tier chip. When it comes to power consumption, you can expect up to 40% reduction in energy consumption for gaming and 4K HDR playback, and up to 20% reduction in power consumption when streaming video.
- The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 comes with a built-in Snapdragon X15 LTE modem that supports up to 800Mbps speeds. “Cutting edge Wi-Fi” and Bluetooth 5 are also included in the chip.
- Snapdragon 710-powered phones will get 4K HDR playback support, as well as displays that support wider colour gamut and colour depth. The Snapdragon 660 already powers one Android phone you may have heard of, the Galaxy S Lite Luxury Edition (Galaxy S8 Lite). So you can expect the 710 to do an even better job on all-screen devices.
- Camera-wise, the new platform brings support for 32-megapixel single-lens cameras, or 20-megapixel dual-lens cameras. That’s because the chip includes the new Qualcomm Spectra 250 image signal processor. It can support features like deep portrait modes and “Face ID / unlock.”
I know after Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 we will still have more like this. Don’t you think Samsung and the likes will be forced to a lower price in their upcoming smartphones?
