Qualcomm will launch a Snapdragon 6 series chip with the same naming convention as its predecessor, new leaks suggest. According to GSM Arena, a reliable leakster, Evan Blass, has leaked the full datasheet for the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC, which states that it is a 4nm chip with part number SM6450.
The new chipset supports 5G networks and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4+ technology. The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC consists of a Kryo processor clocked at up to 2.2 GHz, but the number of cores is unknown. This chip can support displays with up to FullHD+ resolution and 120Hz screen refresh rate and allows users to take photos with a 108MP camera.
Smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 will also be able to record 4K HDR video at 30 FPS and slow motion video at 240 FPS. GSM Arena reported that the image shared by Blass indicates that the 240 FPS slow motion video recording can be done at 270p, which could be a typo, and the actual resolution could be 720p.
There’s no word yet from Qualcomm about the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1. Still, it could go official alongside the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip at this year’s Snapdragon Summit, to be held in Hawaii from 15 to November 17. However, Qualcomm might also announce it before 8 Gen 2. Last year, Qualcomm launched three chipsets based on the 4nm manufacturing process under the new naming scheme – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. (ANI)
