Today, Qualcomm proudly unveiled its new Snapdragon 450 chipset. This new product can make all budget phones a lot better by providing a great performance and longer battery. Having shortened the gap between premium and midrange smartphones nowadays, Qualcomm seems to work on making budget phones snappier.
For the record, the given reception for both BlackBerry KEYone and the Moto Z Play used the Snapdragon 625 system on a chip or system on chip (SoC) to help produce outstanding battery life. However, the new Snapdragon 450 chipset offers extremely efficient energy usage compared to other Qualcomm products. In fact, just like Snapdragon 625 and 630 chipsets, it is also built using the 14nm process.
According to Phone Arena, it can be compared to the 28nm process found at Qualcomm's Snapdragon 435. It also makes sense because it gives smartphones and other devices powered by the Snapdragon 450 chip four additional hours to its standard battery life. It can also provide quicker browsing and gaming performance.
A real octa-core CPU is found bounded with eight Cortex-A53 cores running at a regular clock speed of 1.8GHz. The Adreno 506 GPU provides 25 percent improvement in a speed compared to the Adreno 505 GPU located on the Snapdragon 435 SoC.

The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset is compatible with a dual camera setup in order to support a pair of 13MP lens cameras. This unique camera feature makes the Snapdragon 450 one of the first 400 chipsets to offer Bokeh photography support. Aside from that, Quick Charge 3.0 also works with the Snapdragon 450 and enhance displays with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 1920.
