Quite unexpectedly, Qualcomm introduced a new mobile processor Snapdragon 712. This is an updated and more powerful version of last year's Snapdragon 710. The chipset is made by the 10-nm technological process and includes eight computing cores. The company focused on the expansion of multimedia capabilities, implementing improved performance in games, high-quality sound via Bluetooth and support for faster charging.
Mobile platform Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 712 includes eight computing cores Kryo 360, clocked at 2.3 GHz. Responsible for the graphics accelerator Adreno 616. According to Qualcomm, in comparison with Snapdragon 710 performance increased by about 10%.
When using Bluetooth headphones, the sound should be better thanks to TrueWireless Stereo Plus and Broadcast Audio technology. In addition, the Qualcomm Aqstic hardware and software platform provides the best sound in games.
Another important difference between Snapdragon 712 and Snapdragon 710 was the support of fast charge technology Quick Charge 4+, which allows you to recharge 50% of the battery in just 15 minutes.
As in the flagship chipsets, Snapdragon 712 uses artificial intelligence technology. For example, when you create a photo, your smartphone can automatically detect if you are shooting in low light to increase the brightness of objects in the foreground. In addition, multi-frame noise reduction allows you to take multiple photos at the same time, and then combine them to create one high-quality image.
