This Snapdragon brand internal processor is engraved at 8 nanometers. It is also capable of supporting screens with refresh rate of 120 Hz and supports Wi-Fi 6. Of course, it also has a 5G compatible X51 modem to receive signals from the brand new mobile network. Finally, smartphones equipped with a Snapdragon 480 processor can also benefit from Quick Charge 4 + technology to quickly have autonomy. Users of 5G smartphones at less than 200 euros will therefore have such a smooth and efficient use. Qualcomm estimates that 3.5 billion people will be able to access a 5G smartphone.
Compared to the previous model, the Snapdragon 460, the 480 will offer double the performance of the Kryo 460 processor. The brand claims that the workload for the Artificial Intelligence part has increased by 70% on its new internal chip. Barely announced, the chip should be integrated into many new smartphones. Manufacturers like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo or Nokia have already positioned themselves. Qualcomm news is already abundant since its flagship chip, the Snapdragon 888, was unveiled at the end of this year.
