The eight-core chip received new Kryo 460 cores. Qualcomm promises to optimize games specifically for this processor. Mobile gaming is becoming increasingly popular, and on Android from iOS, more and more heavy new products such as PUBG and Fortnite appear. In response to this trend, Qualcomm introduced a powerful Snapdragon processor 675 mid-level devices.

The new chip was created specifically for gamers and lovers of quality photography. Qualcomm engineers claim that the 675th model is optimized for game tasks: graphics processing, artificial intelligence, FPS drawdowns are minimized, and stable connection mechanisms for online games are implemented.

The novelty has received fresh cores – Kryo 460. They are based on the reference design of ARM A76. The processor architecture is two-cluster, that is, all cores are divided into two parts: two powerful Cortex-A76 and six economical Cortex-A55.

The Snapdragon 675 graphics subsystem is represented by an Adreno 612 video chip with support for OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan and DirectX 12. At the system-on-chip presentation, it was said that Qualcomm works closely with mobile game developers like Unity, Unreal, Messiah, and NeoX. They will be optimized specifically for the Snapdragon 675.

Interesting fact: the processor is built on an 11-nanometer process technology, whereas all recent Qualcomm chips use 10 nm; It is unlikely that there will be a big difference in performance and heat dissipation, but the choice is quite interesting.

In addition, the Snapdragon 675 received excellent camera support. It uses ISP (Image Signal Processor) Spectra 250L, which is capable of working with three sensors on both sides of the devices. Devices on this chip will be able to record 4K video at 30 FPS. Matrix support is limited to 25 megapixels on a single sensor and 16 megapixels on a dual camera. Slow motion video is limited to 720p resolution at a frame rate of 480 FPS.

Fans of high-quality wireless sound will appreciate the support of codecs AptX HD and Aqstic. Connectivity is represented by an X12 LTE modem with a peak download speed of 600 Mbps. For fast charging, Quick Charge 4+ technology is provided, which will fill the battery by 50% in 15 minutes. The first smartphones on the Snapdragon 675 will be released in early 2019.
