•The Kryo CPU in the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC runs at up to 2.2GHz, however, the number of cores is unknown.
In relation to the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset last year. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 was later released by the company as an update to the flagship SoC. These are the company’s newest products, built on the cutting-edge 4nm node, and are intended for premium and mid-range smartphones, respectively.
It now looks like the company is developing a new lower-end chipset based on 4nm technology to replace the Snapdragon 600 range of chipsets. The next Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 mobile platform, which is expected to replace the Snapdragon 695 CPU, has been fully detailed by trusted source Evan Blass.
The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 will reportedly have the chip number SM6450 and will be built on a 4nm technology. It will include a Qualcomm Kyro CPU with a maximum 2.2GHz clock speed. Up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM running at up to 2750MHz will be supported, also with USB 3.1.
specifications & features of the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1
The chipset will have the Snapdragon X62 5G modem, which supports mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G bands.
With this new technology, devices can provide 120Hz refresh rates and up to FHD+ resolution. It will feature Bluetooth 5.2 and the Qualcomm FastConnect 6700 WiFi 6E on the WiFi network.
In terms of cameras, smartphone makers will be allowed to use three 13-megapixel cameras in a series, two 25-megapixel and 16-megapixel cameras, and one 48-megapixel camera. Both slow-motion video capture at 270p resolution and 240FPS as well as 4K HDR video capture at 30FPS are furthermore enabled.
But even though the leak does not specify when the new chipset will be on sale, we may assume that it will make its public debut with the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in the near future.
