Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429:
After introducing Mid-range Snapdragon 710, Qualcomm’s Entry-level smartphones will be even smarter with the three new platforms that Qualcomm has just introduced. The Snapdragon 632, Snapdragon 439 and Snapdragon 429 chipsets promise higher CPU and graphics performance as well as greater energy efficiency. All of them will have AI capabilities and support for several mobile payment systems.
The highlight of the announcement is that the Snapdragon 632, which is based on the 14 nm FinFET process, while the two platforms of the 400 series will be on the 12 nm wafer. Kedar Kondap, Product Manager and VP at Qualcomm, said more than 1,350 devices run the 600-level platforms and 2,300 more are in the 400 series. The three new chips are expected to bring significant improvements and improved features to OEMs and users, he said. Kondap.
