Along with the Snapdragon 720G launched earlier today, Qualcomm also brought to India two new mid and low-end additions – meet the Snapdragon 662 and Snapdragon 460. The chipsets natively support Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, dual-frequency GNSS positioning and Indian regional navigation system NavIC.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 Officially Launched in India
Let’s start with a closer look at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 (SM6115); which is to some extent a “downgraded” version of the Snapdragon 665.
The processor adopts a 11nm manufacturing process, an 8-core Kryo 260 design (4 plus 4); with a maximum frequency of up to 2.0GHz. We then find an integrated Adreno 610 GPU, a Hexagon 683 DSP and Spectra 340T ISP. These will support up to 48MP image sensors, HEIF format pictures and are optimized for three camera setups to work smoothly.
Other specs include an integrated X11 LTE baseband (for downloads at up to 390Mbps); support for UFS 2.1 flash storage, LPDDR3 / LPDDR4X RAM and QC 3.0 fast charge, etc.
Moving onto the Snapdragon 460 ( SM4250-AA ). This chipset utilizes the same 11nm manufacturing process with 8 Kryo 240 cores and a max clock of 1.8GHz. The integrated GPU is an Adreno 610; along with a Hexagon 683. Compared with the Snapdragon 450, the new SoC should bring a 70% higher CPU performance and 60% increase in GPU performance.
Meanwhile the built-in Spectra 340 ISP can support a maximum resolution of 25MP and up to three cameras. It integrates a Snapdragon X11 LTE baseband (390Mbps), support for UFS 2.1 flash storage, LPDDR3 / LPDDR4X RAM, QC 3.0 fast charge, etc.
Finally, Qualcomm revealed that:
Adding that smartphones based on the Snapdragon 662 and 460 are expected to be commercially available by the end of 2020.
