Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 675 with support for three cameras

Today, Qualcomm announced their latest, mid-range smartphone processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 with some high-end, flagship features. The most notable feature about this chipset is support for three cameras now.

Another notable feature about this processor is that its new Kyro 460 architecture is now built around ARM’s Cortex-A76 cores and these are designed for flagship devices. So, the Snapdragon 675 will be the Qualcomm first chipset to debut A76 cores.

As far as the clock speed goes, the Snapdragon 675 has two performance-focused cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and six power efficiency cores clocked at 1.78 GHz. Comparing it to the current Snapdragon 845 chipset which has four 2.8 GHz performances based cores based on ARM’s Cortex-A75, so this new chipset will definitely be faster.

Qualcomm has also built the Snapdragon 675 on 11nm process so, it will outrank the previous, high-tier Snapdragon 710 which is unusual for Qualcomm to make such a move.

Asides from the cores and clock speed, the Snapdragon 675 will be a processor that will help the manufacturers to bring high-end features to mid-range smartphones. The new image signal processor has been built to support triple-camera setup and there are also gaming enhancements for 675 too.

Another noteworthy feature of 675 is that it will also include the support for Quick Charge 4+ and will also have a faster AI engine.

Looking at the features and what the Snapdragon 675 has to offer, it won’t be a surprise seeing this CPU making its way into most of the mid-range smartphone in the first quarter of 2019.
