Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 is the new super-mid-range chip grows in speed and fast charging

Feb 7, 2019, 6:30 am

The mobile industry has its event ready for the next Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and the components do not miss the opportunity to continue evolving. This is the case of Qualcomm, which has just launched a new processor, direct to its mid-range, and which becomes the company’s most powerful second-row chip. Second row because the 800 are the leaders here.

This is the new Snapdragon 712, which becomes part of line 700 of the North American designer and maintains some similarities with the Snapdragon 710, the former first member of the 700 families. But let’s calmly see each of its characteristics and face both in a list of specifications.

Observing the specifications of the new Snapdragon 712 gives the feeling that nothing has changed with respect to the 710, but in fact yes that there has been evolution, although the truth is that very little. Qualcomm has slightly updated the maximum speed of its cores and has taken a step forward in the field of fast charging, now adopting the Quick Charge 4+ instead of the Quick Charge 4 of the previous model. But let’s go in parts.

Sanpdragon 712 Performance

The new Snapdragon 710 bet again for a FinFET construction in 10 nanometers, and is equipped with eight Kryo 360 cores that now run at 2.3GHz instead of 2.2GHz as in the Snapdragon 710. The graph is still the Adreno 616, and here there is no change of power or number of cores so there will be a technical draw in the graphics section of both processors.

There are also no variations in the ISP Spectra 250, as the Snapdragon 712 still supports dual cameras of up to 20 megapixels per sensor, or simple cameras up to 32 megapixels. Even the connectivity is identical, with the Snapdragon X15 on board to offer 4G of category 15 for the climb and category 13 for the descent. Or what is the same, up to 800Mbps download and 150Mbps upload.

As we said, there are variations in the fast charge, which is now Quick Charge 4+, a small step forward that puts the line of Qualcomm 700 “up to date” at the moment. The processor also has the DSP Hexagon 685 to perform, among other things, artificial intelligence tasks. At the moment there is no release date for this Snapdragon 712 but we will be attentive.
