Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 778G Plus, 695, 680, and 480 Plus

 

Qualcomm has officially introduced four of its newest on-chip systems for mid-range and entry-level phones. The four chipsets are Snapdragon 778G Plus, Snapdragon 695, Snapdragon 680, and Snapdragon 480 Plus. Three of the four new chips are made with a 6nm fabrication process and support 5G connectivity. Then, what are the specifications of the Snapdragon 778G Plus, Snapdragon 695, Snapdragon 680, and Snapdragon 480 Plus?

Snapdragon 778G

Plus As the name implies, this chipset is the successor to the Snapdragon 778G released by Qualcomm in May 2021. Snapdragon 778G Plus already supports 5G networks. As a successor, the chip with 6nm fabrication is claimed to have a higher clockspeed than its predecessor.

The Kryo 670 processor (CPU) clockspeed on the Snapdragon 778G Plus has now been increased to 2.5 GHz. Previously, the Kryo 670 CPU on the Snapdragon 778G had a slightly lower speed of 2.4 GHz. This chipset uses an Adreno 642L GPU which is claimed to have graphics processing performance up to 20 percent higher than the previous generation. For gaming needs, this platform brings several features from Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming, including Variable Rate Shading (VRS) and Qualcomm Game Quick Touch. Snapdragon 778G Plus' 5G capability is supported by the Snapdragon X53 5G modem which promises higher internet access speeds. Qualcomm claims that download speeds can reach 3.7 Gbps and upload speeds up to 1.6 Gbps.

Snapdragon 695



Hierarchically, this chipset is the successor to Snapdragon 690. Snapdragon 695 is made with a 6nm fabrication process and already supports 5G connectivity, in contrast to Snapdragon 690 with 8nm fabrication. Compared to its predecessor, Qualcomm's latest chipset has improvements, with a focus on the performance aspect. With 6nm fabrication, this chipset is claimed to be more efficient than before. Snapdragon 695 CPU performance is boosted by 15 percent and GPU performance is boosted by 30 percent.

Just like before, this chipset still relies heavily on the Kryo 660 CPU and Adreno 619 GPU. The difference with Snapdragon 690, Snapdragon 695 now supports mmWave 5G spectrum. Snapdragon 695 is also equipped with the Qualcomm AI Engine which is processed by the Hexagon Vector Extensions processor.

Snapdragon 680


The Snapdragon 680 is the only chip that doesn't have 5G support among the four. Snapdragon 680 is made with 6nm fabrication. Just like Snapdragon 662, this chip relies on a Kryo 265 CPU with a clock speed of 2.4 Ghz and an Adreno 610 GPU. The specialty of this chipset is that Qualcomm puts an Image Signal Processor (ISP) Spectra 346 which will improve image processing capabilities. This ISP allows the chipset to process images from three cameras simultaneously.

Snapdragon 480 Plus

This Snapdragon 480 Plus is the successor to the Snapdragon 480 which is aimed at affordable 5G phones. This chipset is made with 8nm fabrication. Snapdragon 480 Plus relies on the upgraded Kryo 460 CPU. The Kryo 460 CPU clockspeed has increased to 2.2 GHz from the previous 2.0 GHz.

Just like the regular Snapdragon 480, Snapdragon 480 Plus also relies on the Adreno 619 GPU.Snapdragon 480 Plus' 5G capability is supported by the Snapdragon X51 modem which supports sub-6 and mmWave 5G networks.

It is not yet known which smartphones will adopt these four SoCs in the future. Let's just wait.
