Qualcomm has announced its next budget chipset in the 400 series. The upcoming chip will be known as 480 SoC, which is 5G enabled chipset, hence enabling budget devices to experience the speed of 5G networks. This chipset is built on an 8nm process, bundles with an integrated Snapdragon X51 5G Modem-RF system with support for both mmWave and Sub-6 GHz networks.
The working cores are Kryo 460 cores based on ARM Cortex-A6 clocked at 2 GHz and bundles a power-efficient Cortex-A55 core clocked at 1.8GHz. Talking of GPU, it is Adreno 619. The performance of the chipset is 2X more as compared to Snapdragon 460. Moreover, AI tasks will be 70% faster thanks to the Qualcomm Hexagon 686 chipset.
