After the announcement of the new agreement between Sony and Qualcomm for a collaboration aimed at the production of new medium-high-end smartphones, the US giant reveals its latest low-cost mobile chipset, Snapdragon 4 Gen 2. This solution, equipped with a proprietary CPU, will allow low-cost smartphones to level up and offer superior performance, without causing a drop in battery life which, on the contrary, is further optimized. So let’s look at the key specifications of this SoC.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 is official
The chipset in question comes with Qualcomm Kryo CPU from peak speed of 2.2 GHz, for a slight increase compared to the first generation. The supported fast charging technology can then reach up to 50% charge in 15 minutes, while on the display side, the platform offers support for modern FHD + panels with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz.
There are also substantial innovations regarding the camera sector, including electronic image stabilization, faster autofocus and improved blur reduction. In addition, the Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 chipset provides the multi-camera temporal filtering (MCTF) for drastic noise reduction when making videos.
And how to say no toartificial intelligence? AI manifests itself here in the form of camera upgrades, especially on the lighting side. The algorithms will allow camera apps to take pictures in low light environments automatically looking for the best setting. Also comes support for a background noise removal tool. Finally, on the connectivity side, there is the proprietary 5 GB Modern-RF X61 system for “incredible speeds” with the Internet.
Which smartphones will Qualcomm Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 come to? The first candidate belongs to the Redmi range and should arrive by the end of 2023, while vivo has followed the brand under Xiaomi closely by committing to add the chipset to its lineups.
