Google Is Working On A Smartphone With Snapdragon 710 SoC

Google has successfully introduced two generations of Pixel series smartphones although these devices especially the pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL had a fair share of market complaint. Google Pixel series has always been flagship models and their prices are also on par with Samsung Galaxy S series and iPhones. Google is expected to release the Pixel 3 series flagships (Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL) sometime this year. However, information from Roland Quandt, a well-known leakster, suggests that Google is developing a mid-range Pixel smartphone which will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset and it is scheduled to arrive in the first half of 2019.

He stated that he does not know the specifics of this device and the development of this smartphone started a month ago. He also said that he does not know if Google plans to release any smartphone this year. Snapdragon 710 is a mid-range chip that Qualcomm has just released. The chip is based on a 10nm LPP process and it uses Kryo 360 architecture. It comes with a frequency of 2.2GHzcoupled with an Adreno 616 GPU. Furthermore, this chip supports QC 4.0+. This chip was used in the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 8 SE which has a powerful performance and energy saving capability.
