The Qualcomm, a chip maker is looking to announce new chipset called Snapdragon 450 processor. Currently, the company is leading the smartphone world with its powerful processors. The new chipset will replace the current Snapdragon 435 SoC, which is being used on some popular smartphones such as Redmi 4 and Huawei Y7 with great success.
The New Snapdragon 450 is likely to use 14 nm process, which is really good news. It would be great to have 14 nm FinFET technology on a mid range device since it consumes very less power and optimizations are top notch. The new chip is expected to pack an octa-core ARM A53 CPU clocked at 600MHz. Though, other specs like LTE speed, band and GPU are unknown, but we can expect at least Quick Charge 3.0 support.
Furthermore, we have no details regarding its launch date and availability, so we have to wait its official launch, which might take place in next couple of months. We can’t expect to pack SD450 processor devices in market untill Q4, 2017.
