Snapdragon 450 Is Coming With 14nm And Octa-Core Cortex-A53 Chipset
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 could be in the works right now at San Diego, California. Supposedly, this Snapdragon chip will be an additional member of the low-mid-range family that seems to set on upcoming entry-level smartphones. All of this details has been derived from the leaked specification of this upcoming card silicon.
According to Phone Arena, Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 is allegedly referred to as the SDM450 internally. It appears to essentially be a toned-down adaptation of the mid-tier Snapdragon 625, which gained very nice and excellent feedback.
As far as the records are the concern, the Snapdragon 625 is one of the in demand energy-efficient chips in the market because it enables handsets to consecutively top the battery benchmark test. Given that the upcoming Snapdragon 450 is indeed a "remix" of the Snapdragon625, fans might expect a new generation of low-end smartphones that have a high potential of a longer battery life on a single charge.
The assumed Snapdragon 450 seems to be a 64-bit, octa-core processor comprising eight Cortex-A53 cores measured at around 2.0GHz to- 2.2GHz. According to Android Headlines, the chipset will be based on a 14nm manufacturing process, which is similar to the SD625 (Snapdragon 625). Another similarity between the upcoming SD450 and the existing SD625 is its graphics unit.
While the Adreno 506 GPU is for the SD450 with 600MHz, the SD625 had it clicking at 650MHz. In addition to that, the Snapdragon 450 might also not have the same X9 LTE modem compared the Snapdragon 625. The LTE modem allows theoretical download speeds that are up to 300Mbps and with uplink speeds of up to 150Mbps.
Qualcomm will probably opt for the X8 LTE modem that supports up to 300 Mbps download speed and 100 Mbps uplink speed. However, it is also possible for the tech giant to choose the specs of the X6 LTE modem, which allow speeds for 150 Mbps DL and 75 Mbps UL.
