The American giant does not cease to develop its portfolio for devices from the medium and "higher-medium" price range. Qualcomm has announced a new series of Snapdragon 700 systems, which will bring to the mobile devices functions known from some flagships.
Qualcomm at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona decided to officially announce a new line of processors that will be able to place in the smartphone segment with a slightly better but not yet flagship performance. The Snapdragon 700 series can therefore be placed peacefully between versions 600 and 800 . The target market for these systems will probably be China and Asia in general – so it can be expected that we will see them in devices from OPPO, Xiaomi and other producers there. Unfortunately, the Americans did not specify any specific models that will appear in the Snapdragon 700 series, but they betrayed what we can expect. Certainly they will be Kryo cores and Adreno graphics, as well as Spectra image processing. Qualcomm also boasts that the Snapdragon 700 series will be around 30 more efficient in terms of energy saving compared to the Snapdragon 660 itself, which is already present in the market for a long time. The new series of chips has also been designed specifically to provide users with specific solutions in the field of artificial intelligence – recently a very fashionable issue in the mobile market. In addition to SI support, the Snapdragon 700 series processors will also support fast charging of Quick Charge 4.0+ (this is very good information) and Bluetooth 5, as well as an unspecified modem for LTE connections. It is very possible that it will be a Snapdragon X24 unit, but I'm not sure. The series Snapdragon 700 processors promise to be the natural successors of the 600 line, but at the same time the chips that will be able to really do a lot and will break the next border between mediums and flagship devices. I like this whole situation, but it will surely affect the prices of devices that will benefit from the latest Qualcomm technology. Well. Something for something.
