Qualcomm’s new bet for agitating the mobile chipsets segment on the next year will be the Snapdragon 845. We expect the full details of the chipset to be revealed before the end of 2017, however some details appeared online telling us pretty much what to expect.
According to the source, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 will keep focusing in what is doing good. While other chipset makers are starting their 7nm solutions, Qualcomm’s new flagship SoC will use the same 10nm from its predecessor. However with some differentiations i.e. Snapdragon 845 use LPÈ while the recent released Samsung Chipset, Exynos 9810, uses LPP.
In what concern to the brute force, the Snapdragon 845 will be an octa-core divided in four Cortex-A75 and another four Cortex-A53 cores. Graphics have become even more demanding with the advent of higher resolution full screen display and Qualcomm is getting this covered by Adreno 630.
Another 2017 trend was the use of multiple cameras setup, with some handsets even bringing four cameras in total. So Qualcomm is preparing the chipset for supporting dual 25MP front cameras and dual 25MP rear units. In what concerns connectivity the Snapdragon 845 counts with X20 modem, support for 802.11 and Wi-Fi with a download speed of 1.2Gbps.
Telling about availability, we may see the Snapdragon 845 debut in the Samsung S9 and S9+ early in 2018, followed by either LG G7 and Xiaomi Mi 7. Are you excited for the next generation of Qualcomm’s flagship SoC?
