Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 675 processor with a focus on gaming

Qualcomm launches Snapdragon 675, a mid-range chip designed for mobile gaming

Xiaomi Global VP and Managing Director Xiaomi India, Manu Kumar Jain made the announcement about a Snapdragon 675-powered smartphone to be launched soon, but failed to mention the exact timeline of the release.

Qualcomm is calling out the AI improvements of the SD675 as well. It supports up to 8GB of RAM and has Qualcomm Adreno 612 GPU for gaming.

The new chipset features the Kryo 460 CPU with two performance cores and six efficiency cores.

Besides enhancements in gaming, camera and AI performance, the 675 features in improvements in other major areas, as well.

Panthers' Eric Reid blasts Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins over anthem protests
Reid signed with the Panthers last month after starting free safety Da'Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve. It reportedly goes back to their feud that began past year , when Reid withdrew from the Players Coalition.

At the same event at which it announced the Snapdragon 675, the company also announced a new version of its upcoming mmWave 5G-capable wireless antenna. To do so, the Snapdragon 675 uses a Spectra 250L image signal processor to support a triple camera - one that can seamlessly switch between telephoto, wide angle and super-wide angle for a 5x optical zoom - on either side of a phone. The company adds that it's focused on gaming performance with the SD675, taking steps like working with game developers and making optimizations for games and game engines like Unity and Unreal.

Capture: For the first time, Snapdragon 675 supports a triple camera configuration in the front or back. Also new here is native support for portrait mode (bokeh) with HDR, as well as limitless 720p slow-motion video capture at a whopping 480 fps - a first for a Snapdragon 600-tier platform. The new Snapdragon 675 is also ready for AI features like scene and object detection in the camera, face unlock and payment security, and translation. The 675 comes with AptX HD and has the Aqstic codec built-in.

Specifically, the chipset includes the company's X12 modem, which supports three carrier aggregation and is capable of theoretical download speeds of up to 600Mbps. We haven't seen a lot of momentum around Quick Charge 4 this year, but that should change in the coming months. The platform is already available to OEMs and will arrive in consumer devices in early 2019.

Indeed, in terms of processing power, the company says the 675 is 30 percent faster at launching games and 35 percent faster when browsing the web, compared to the company's previous generation 600-tier SoC.
