Qualcomm Announces Cheap Chips Just Before the Launch of the Apple A16 Bionic
Today, the most powerful phones that you can buy are all powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. But one thing you should know is that Qualcomm manufactures mobile platforms at a variety of prices and power levels.
Before now, only the series 7 and series 8 platforms had gotten the new Gen 1 designation, but the company, however, unveiled the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 today. This very announcement is coming just a day before Apple is expected to announce its own flagship mobile chip known as the A16 Bionic.
Qualcomm Snapdragons Will Help Power Mid-Range Phones and Super-Cheap Devices
You should also know that these new Qualcomm Snapdragons will help power mid-range phones and super-cheap devices, respectively. And to clearly understand the difference, the current OnePlus Nord N20 which at the moment costs around $300, makes use of a Snapdragon 6-series chipset, and the Nord N200 on the other hand which costs around $200, makes use of a Snapdragon 4-series chipset.
Qualcomm Advertises a Host of New Benefits for These Gen 1 Platforms
Qualcomm advertises a host of new advantages for these Gen 1 platforms over the previous and older generation. But it is however and truly up to the manufacturers to implement all of the many benefits and advantages.
For example, the Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 can take photos of up to 108MP, but it only matters if the smartphone maker in question adds a 108MP sensor and the right camera hardware, accessories, and software. The Snapdragon 4 platform can now do all the processing work as long as the phone does the work of shooting the image.
