The new Snapdragon 450 sees Qualcomm's mid-range smartphone platform move to a 14nm process, a change that should bring very significant efficiency gains, as current 400-series chips are on a 28nm process.
The new Snapdragon 450 uses the 14nm FinFET process and is touted to significantly improve battery life, graphics and compute performance, imaging and LTE connectivity over its predecessor, the Snapdragon 435. The Snapdragon 450 for Entry Level mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Also, even the integrated Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU accounts for yet another 25-percent increase in graphics processing speeds. The Snapdragon 450 is the successor to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 platform. Of course, the Snapdragon 450 is compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, but that's to be expected of most Qualcomm SoCs in this day and age. "Qualcomm Technologies invigorates this momentum, helping us to provide consumers with the cutting-edge infotainment and connected vehicle experiences they demand, thanks to the high-performance processing and superior connectivity delivered by Snapdragon automotive platforms".
One of the biggest highlights of the chip is that it is built on the 14-nm process which makes it highly power efficient. Other camera features include support for enhanced dual cameras consisting of 13+13MP, or single camera support for up to 21MP; hybrid autofocus; and 1080p video capture and playback at up to 60 frames per second, enabling slow motion capture. However, it now supports USB 3.0, up from USB 2.0 on the Snapdragon 435.
With the Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform, users can enjoy faster LTE speeds, thanks to the Snapdragon X9 LTE modem, which utilises 2x20MHz Carrier Aggregation in both downlink and uplink for peak speeds of 300 Mbps and 150 Mbps respectively. The chipset also supports high-quality audio recording with high dynamic range and HTC U11's Audio Focus-like feature where a Snapdragon 450 chipset-powered can focus on audio when a user zooms in an area while recording a video.
Apart from the mobile chipset, Qualcomm also announced new biometric authentication technology at the event. The mid-range is just as important to many phone manufacturers, however, and Qualcomm wants its processors to feature in those devices as well.
