Snapdragon 710 to improve midrange Android phone performance

The new Snapdragon 710 mobile platform includes a multi-core AI engine

So let's take a look at the key differences and see how the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 fares, when compared with the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform and how far is it from matching the performance of the flagship Snapdragon 845.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor utilises the 10nm LPP manufacturing process, just like the top-notch Snapdragon 845 SoC.

Image processing is also an area where the 710 seems to push ahead of the 660.

That's when the first handsets to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 processor will be ready for business.

In terms of display features, the Snapdragon 710 SoC supports with 4K HDR playback for viewing HDR videos and apps.

With its newest "Snapdragon 710" mobile processor, US-based chipmaker Qualcomm is planning to improve the Artificial Intelligence (AI)-performance of mid-range Android phones along with refined voice-based user interfaces, photography and biometrics features.

In addition, when compared to the same legacy platform, the Kryo 360 architecture - built on ARM CortexTM - offers an improvement in performance of up to 20 percent, 25 percent faster web browsing, and app launch times which are up to 15 percent quicker. The Snapdragon 710 comes with multi-core AI Engine which Qualcomm claims to deliver two times performance improvements in AI applications compared to Snapdragon 660.

The Snapdragon 660, even with all the power that it had to offer, was used only by a handful of OEMs which was a shame given its capabilities. It also supports Quick Charge 4+ fast charging technology with which you can charge your device from 0% to 50% in less than 15 minutes.

Capture: The new Spectra 250 ISP allows image capture up to 32MP single ISP and 20MP dual ISP.

The first consumer devices equipped with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 710 are expected this quarter, Qualcomm said. The new chipset also brings some of the most advanced 4G LTE technologies to the 700-tier, including 4×4 MIMO technology (on up to 2 aggregated carriers) for up to 70% faster download speeds in weak signal conditions, and License-Assisted Access (LAA) for faster speeds in crowded places, compared to phones that don't support these features. It also features Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus to support wire-free listening experiences without wires between the left and right earbuds. Additionally, the AI Engine in the Snapdragon 710 supports speedy video style transfer, deep portrait modes and Face ID / Unlock with active depth sensing.

Phonemakers will announce their own pricing, but devices that use Qualcomm's 710 chip should fall somewhere between the $900 premium price and roughly $300 budget set.
