Qualcomm has been recently reported to be working on forthcoming powerful midrange chipset under 700-series. Today, the chipset manufacturer has officially announced the first System-on-chipset from 700-tier, Snapdragon 710. The chipset is aimed to bring the flagship performance to the midrange smartphones, following the Snapdragon 660 Chipset. Qualcomm now brings the hardware-based AI-capabilities to the midrange smartphone with Snapdragon 710, having multi-core AI Engine inbuilt.
The octa-core chipset is manufactured using the 10nm FinFET process, which the top-tier processors are built on. The AI-powred processor comes with the integration of Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, Qualcomm Adreno Visual Processing subsystem and Qualcomm Kryo CPU to run the entire system efficiently. Also, the company offers 35% faster graphics processing to help to make it a better gaming chipset. Not only in the performance wise, but the manufacturer has also added revolutionary technology for the image processing. The all-new Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP helps in enhancing the low-light photography, reducing the grains and noises on the captured images, etc. For the first time under the midrange category processors, the Snapdragon 710 Chipset supports the single camera up to 32MP and dual lens up to 20MP. Also, it supports depth-field Face recognition technology.
On the network side, it comes with the latest Qualcomm X15 LTE modem, having 4×4 MIMO technology (multiple inputs, multiple outputs). It can carry the display having the resolution up to 4K and stereo speaker system with Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus. As it is manufactured using the 10nm process, the power consumption would be comparatively lesser and might showcase an impressive battery performance. It is also provided with the Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 4+ to boost the battery up to 50% in 15 minutes.
Since the chipset comes with killer performance under mid-tier level, manufacturers are expected to rush for the Snapdragon 710. It seems the Xiaomi is one among the first manufacturers to have access to the chipset, as they have ordered the lot for their upcoming two smartphone models. Additionally, other partner OEMs will have access to the 700-series shortly.
