Qualcomm today introduced an upgraded version of its Snapdragon 778G chip. The new mid-range chip, called Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G, is essentially the same as its predecessor but with enhanced CPU and GPU performance. Along with the Snapdragon 778G Plus, Qualcomm announced three more chips, the Snapdragon 695 5G, the Snapdragon 680 4G, and the Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G
Like the Snapdragon 778G, the new Snapdragon 778G Plus is based on Qualcomm’s Kryo 670 CPU cores. But the new SoC can boost up to 2.5GHz, instead of 2.4GHz. The SoC also has the same Adreno 642L GPU, but Qualcomm claims that it offers 20% better performance than before. Other specifications, including AI capabilities, 5G modem, other wireless connectivity options, ISP, and more, remain unchanged.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G
The Snapdragon 695 5G is a step up from the Snapdragon 690 that Qualcomm announced last June. The company says the Snapdragon 695 5G offers support for both mmWave and 5G below 6GHz, up to 30% faster graphics rendering, and 15% improved CPU performance over its predecessor. The SoC is based on Qualcomm’s Kryo 660 CPU cores (up to 2.2GHz) and it packs an Adreno 619 GPU. As the Snapdragon 695 5G offers mmWave 5G support, expect to see affordable Snapdragon 600 series 5G phones more affordable
Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G
Snapdragon 680 4G is a new mobile platform for 4G smartphones built on the 6nm process. The SoC is based on Qualcomm’s Kryo 265 CPU core and has an Adreno 610 GPU. It packs a Snapdragon X11 LTE modem, FastConnect 6100 subsystem, Spectra 246 ISP, QC3. The chipset is geared towards budget-friendly devices offering FHD+ displays at the highest 90Hz refresh rates.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G
Like the Snapdragon 778G Plus, the new Snapdragon 480 Plus is a slightly improved version of the Snapdragon 480 from earlier this year. It’s still an 8nm chip with Qualcomm’s Kryo 460 CPU cores and Adeno 619 GPU, but it offers better CPU and GPU performance than the previous model. The chipset is designed for affordable 5G phones and it has Snapdragon X51 5G modem RF system, supports FHD+ display with 120Hz highest refresh rate, Spectra 345 ISP and QC4+ support.
It’s still unclear when we can expect the first devices with the new chipset. The Plus models have essentially the same hardware, so they should come out before the new chip models. Expect new phones with these chips from manufacturers like Motorola, vivo, and Honor.
