The American founder unveils new references that will equip nearly 85 new smartphone models to come in the coming months.
It seems the world is experiencing an unprecedented shortage of chips. However, looking at the latest news from manufacturers, the finding does not seem so obvious. Whether it is Apple and its homemade computer chips, Google with the Tensor chip from the Pixel 6, or even Samsung, Huawei and soon Oppo, most manufacturers have serious ambitions in the sector.
However, the king of SoCs for smartphones, Qualcomm, does not intend to let it go. To show its lead, the American founder has just unveiled a slew of new chips for mid-range mobiles. We thus find the Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G, Snapdragon 695 5G, 680 4G and Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G.
Most of these chips rely on the new generation of mobile networks, 5G. This is the great novelty of these chips, which are ultimately only boosted versions of SoC existing at Qualcomm. We still note a nice performance boost on some of them, such as the Snapdragon 695 5G which offers 30% more performance on its graphics.
These new chips will land in the coming months in nearly 85 devices at Xiaomi, Motorola, Nokia, Honor, Oppo or Vivo. “We are delighted to adopt the new Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G and Snapdragon 695 5G mobile platforms that will allow the whole world to taste 5G but also improved AI and a more immersive gaming experience” said the vice president of Xiaomi at the announcement of these new chips from Qualcomm.
