Qualcomm has formally announced a new processor for the 400 series at second world mobile congress held at Shanghai, which is called as “Snapdragon 450”. As comparing to Qualcomm’s other processor the top-notch place is still for the “Snapdragon 835” but not all the budget phones can enjoy the processing of “Snapdragon 835”. Keeping this in mind, Snapdragon 450 SOC has given a new hope for improved performance in the budget phone as well.
With-no-doubt, Snapdragon 450 has moved the Qualcomm’s mainstream SOC lineup from 28nm LPP(Snapdragon 435) to 14nm LPP (Snapdragon 450) for the 400 series. And comparing with the Snapdragon 435 this will have 25% faster CPU performance and will also increase the graphics performance by 25%. Well, we should thank to the architectural improvements like 14nm FinFet Design, 8(64-bits) processing cores clocked at 1.8 GHz and “506 Adreno GPU” with a display supportive option of 1080p Full HD and WXGA (1920X1200) resolutiondisplay.
One of the interesting feature is Qualcomm’s built-in Hexagon DSP, which allows the camera ability like real-time-bokeh possible. And video recording is possible in 1080p at 60 frames per seconds. The Image Signal Processor (ISP) is also upgraded with new compatibility for a single 21mp rear Camera or Dual 13 mp .
However, we can’t miss the newly improved USB-3.0 for faster data transfer which was lacking in Snapdragon 435 as-well(USB-2.0).Likely, the new member in the mid-range Snapdragon family .i.e. Snapdragon 450 is beefed-up with it’s improved fast charging which is of “Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0” and is promising a solid battery life improvements , which is stated to have 4 hrs longer battery life than its predecessor Snapdragon 435.
