Hello, Mi Fans
In the electronics world, artificial intelligence has become a “do or die” proposition. All chipset makers have their own solutions and Qualcomm just kicked off the price race – AI isn’t just for flagships anymore. The company announced a new Snapdragon 700 line of chipsets that will bring the advanced AI capabilities of the 800 series into a more affordable package. We don't know the exact specs yet, but the new chip will use Kryo CPU cores and an Adreno GPU (plus Spectra ISP and the Hexagon vector processor).
The 700 chips will be twice as fast in AI tasks compared to a Snapdragon 660. This includes tasks ranging from machine vision to speech recognition. Camera enhancements seem to be a particular focus: “Expect a multitude of additional professional grade camera features,” says Qualcomm. “From our cutting-edge Qualcomm AI Engine to superior camera, device performance and power, the Snapdragon 700 Series is optimized to support the experiences consumers have come to expect from the most advanced mobile devices at a lower price point.”
The Snapdragon 700 Mobile Platform Series is engineered to offer advancements in:
AI: Snapdragon 700 Series products will come with the multi-core Qualcomm AI Engine delivering up to 2x improvements for on-device AI applications compared to the Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform. Through heterogeneous computing, the new architectures of the 700 Series – the Hexagon Vector Processor, Adreno Visual Processing subsystem, and Kryo CPU – work cooperatively to effortlessly capture and share videos, learn voice and speech and make your device last on a single charge without changing applications or settings.
Camera: The Snapdragon 700 Series will unleash the limitless power of the Qualcomm Spectra ISP and make you love capturing your life experiences during all parts of the day and night, in slow-motion, or with the help of AI. Expect a multitude of additional professional grade camera features, supported by high-quality specs, to reside in the 700 Series.
Performance and Battery: The Snapdragon 700 Series will debut new architectures across the mobile platform, including Qualcomm Spectra ISP, Kryo CPU, and Adreno Visual Processing subsystem, which will offer up to 30% improvements in power efficiency, and better performance and battery life across numerous applications compared to the Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform. 700 Series products will also benefit from Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4+ technology, engineered to get up to 50% charge in only 15 minutes*.
Connectivity: The Snapdragon 700 Tier will feature an advanced suite of wireless technologies with ultra-fast LTE, carrier Wi-Fi features, as well as enhanced Bluetooth 5.
Qualcomm has not announced in this press conference the exact date in which these processors will be available. Which means that, initially, they are not expected to appear during this year. We do not even know the specific models that will appear. Hence, it is very likely that until next year we do not see these chipsets in action. It is expected that the first commercial samples of these processors begin to reach manufacturers already at some time during the first half of the year.
