Qualcomm introduced its new Snapdragon 690 5G platform this week as the first chip to assist manufacturers make more reasonably priced 5G phones. The variety of companies lining up to make use of it is already strong, with names like LG, Motorola, and Nokia on the record.
This new chip (SM6350) from Qualcomm is an 8nm 64-bit chip, with support for displays at a full HD resolution and as much as 120Hz (or QHD and 60Hz), as much as 192MP digital camera captures, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, Quick Charge 4+, and 5G.
The 5G is supplied by the Snapdragon X51 5G modem where you’ve got sub-6Hz support and maximum download speeds of 1.2Gbps. You won’t discover 5G mmW support within the 690 because 5G is costly to implement, and principally ineffective to everybody on this planet not sitting outside on a street in a serious metropolis or in a sports area.
The chip will likely be an advantageous mid-range chip for individuals who assume they want 5G Phones in their lives.
For LG and Motorola, we’ll get LG K and Stylo series devices with 5G, whereas Motorola will probably implement 5G into their One series devices. We might see a Moto G 5G sooner or later too.
HMD, TCL, Sharp, and Wingtech are others who love the 690.
