Qualcomm introduced its Snapdragon 710 Mobile Chipset and it is first SoC from 700 series. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 is from a family of silicon designed chipsets to provide more affordable devices while providing nearly same performance as those who feature high-end chipsets. It is developed using a 10nm process and includes things like neural network processing along with a multi-core AI engine.
Smartphone with Snapdragon 710 will have features that are seen in premium and expensive smartphones with high-end. This new chipset will also greatly improve Artificial Intelligence compared to Snapdragon 660 SoC which Qualcomm announced in its new series.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 – Specifications & Features
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset consists of two high-performance custom Kryo 360 cores which are running at 2.20GHz and tackle more heavier tasks. There are other six Kryo 360 cores running at 1.70GHz and perform general tasks like web browsing and media consumption. There is an Adreno 616 GPU in Snapdragon 710 and it is based on ARM Cortex-based Kryo 360 architecture that offers 20 percent improved performance and 25 percent faster browsing and application launching is 15% faster compared to the previous generation.
AI-based applications will also run quickly and efficiently. The Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform consume 40 percent less power for 4K HDR video playback and also while playing high-end games. Not just that it also saves a lot of battery while streaming videos and Qualcomm’s through saving 20% less power, new Quick Charge 4+ technology will charge more than half of battery in just 15minutes.
