The Snapdragon 695 chipset will try to be especially effective in the low-end segment by providing support for faster 5G networks as well as up to 30 percent graphics performance increase.
Although 5G technologies were introduced with flagships and high-end phones in the first place, the real battle is at the lower level. The more 5G devices with a costable cost, the faster it becomes widespread. Chipmakers are aware of this.
Losing leadership in the mobile chip market to MediaTek, Qualcomm seeks to reclaim its throne with cost-oriented solutions. Snapdragon 695 aims to strengthen the hand of the company in this sense.
The Snapdragon 695 chipset probably includes Kryo 660 performance and efficiency cores in 2+6 format. On the graphics side, the Adreno 619 unit is available. The chipset designed in the 6nm process offers a 15 percent improvement in processor performance and a 30 percent improvement in graphics performance compared to the Snapdragon 690 chipset.
Snapdragon X51 modem can reach 2.5Gbps theoretical speeds while providing support for mmWave 5G networks, which offer high speed especially in the close area. There are advantages such as Quick Charge 4+, 108MP sensor support, and the ability to receive data from three 13MP sensors at the same time. Oppo and Xiaomi are among the first customers of the new chipset.
