Qualcomm has announced a handful of processors this year but it still has more in the pipeline as revealed by a new report. These new processors will launch under the mid-range category.
These new processors will be launching under the Snapdragon 600 series according to their part numbers discovered by Winfuture.de. There is also a possibility that the chipsets may have gaming variants, so we may see the G-suffix naming which Qualcomm uses for the Snapdragon 700 series get applied to the Snapdragon 600 series too.
The SM6375 is expected to launch in four variants all of which will have different CPU and GPU clock rates but the same base. All four will have 8 CPU cores made up of four Gold cores and four Silver cores. Below are the configurations that have been spotted. The GPU clock speed is said to be between 940Hz and 960Hz.
- 4x Gold cores at 2.1GHz + 4x Silver cores 1.8GHz
- 4x Gold cores at 2.2GHz + 4x Silver cores 2.0GHz
- 4x Gold cores at 2.3GHz + 4x Silver cores 2.1GHz
- 4x Gold cores at 2.5GHz + 4x Silver cores 2.2GHz
The source reports that one of the developer platforms based on one of the chips has a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz which further reinforces the speculation that at least one of the processors may have the G-suffix. A wild guess says we may see two of the chips arrive as the Snapdragon 695 and Snapdragon 695G respectively.
The Snapdragon SM6225 is the second chipset that was discovered by the source and it is expected to launch under the Snapdragon 690 which has part number SM6350. However, there are similarities between the chipset and the Snapdragon 765 a.k.a. SM7250. Unfortunately, more specific details about the CPU and GPU are not available, though it has been reported that the specs of the testing platforms are in line with mid-range devices such as 6GB of RAM, 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage, and a 90Hz FHD+ display.
Both the Qualcomm SM6375 and the Qualcomm SM6225 are manufactured by TSMC but their node size is unknown. Also, the chips should launch this year as the above details are said to be at least two months old already.
