Qualcomm continues to arm itself for a new year in which it will run many hundreds of years Of all kinds and species - so know the 662, 460 and 720G probably sounds a lot down the road.

The Snapdragon 460 emerges as the cheapest and most basic chip worthy of purchase on a smart device starting this year - with eight Kryo 240 processing cores up to 1.8GHz in frequency combined with an Adreno 610 graphics core, all in an efficient 11 nm production process from Samsung. You'll also find an image processor that supports up to 48 megapixel photo sensors, a fourth-generation built-in modem for up to 400Mbps download speeds, support for LPDDR3 or faster modern LPDDR4X memories, support for Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity and 802.11ax Wi-Fi connectivity (with the addition of Separate dedicated transceiver) and support for Quick Charge 3.0 loading.

11nm is the default manufacturing process for Qualcomm in the smart device market - and we welcome that and are definitely happy to leave the 28nm and behind

God- 662 looks like the replacement for the 632 at the lower end of the 600 family - with four Kryo 260 Gold cores based on Cortex A73 at 2GHz plus four economical Kryo 260 Silver cores based on Cortex A53, the Adreno 610 Graphic core just like in 460 and 665 launched last year (different operating frequencies may be set to determine the numeric classes of the models), support for LPDDR3 or LPDDR4X, fourth generation X11 built-in modem, Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, connectivity 5 and 6 and image processor with support for triangular photo arrays and up to 48 megapixel sensors.

Qualcomm are tapping into the burgeoning Indian market with support for the country's new satellite navigation system - not something that is expected to be particularly relevant to the Israeli public, but it's good to know that Qualcomm supports all of the existing GNSS technologies in the field without exception

The Snapdragon 720G will be the top-of-the-line model as well as the lowest numbered G model to date, with many similarities to last year's Snapdragon 730G - a manufacturing process of At 8 nm, an array consisting of a pair of advanced Cortex A465-based Kryo 76 Gold cores and six more Cortex A465-based Kryo 55 Silver, Adreno 618 graphics and a Spectra 350 family image processor that supports huge up to 192 megapixel photo sensors (not yet available in the market - but always good for the future), visit Dual Channel LPDDR4X for up to 8GB volume, fourth generation X15 with up to 800Mbps download speeds, built-in connectivity support With a pair of transmission arteries and a pair of absorption arteries and support for quick charge loading Quick 4.0.

Expect first smartphones with these intriguing hardware over the next few months - with possible announcements during the exhibition 2020 in a month

Now, we seem to have a comprehensive picture of Qualcomm's own products for use with smartphones at all price levels: Snapdragon 865 chips will star in most flagship stores, Snapdragon 765G chips will provide top gaming capabilities (plus 5G built-in support) Prices of about $ 500 or slightly less, 720G will offer gaming capabilities at prices below $ 400, while the 662 and 460 we can get on smart devices at $ 300, $ 200 and even less.

It is likely that we will see another variety They prefer to use older, more American-made chips - but those are the names that are slowly gaining control of the field. We wish them success on the mission, because the competition seems to be on their part May be very challenging in this round, for a change.
