  • Qualcomm launches Snapdragon 675, a mid-range chip designed for mobile gaming

As to where the Snapdragon 675 fits within Qualcomm's increasingly crowded mid-range, the vendor says the phone will be targeted at the same category as the Snapdragon 670. The Snapdragon 670 arrived in August, promising enhanced AI performance and the usual performance improvements.

Qualcomm is all about announcements today - first the president of the company introduced OnePlus as one of the first companies to implement a 5G smartphone with the Snapdragon X50 modem, and later the company unveiled the gaming-based Snapdragon 675 chipset with new CPU cores as an improvement of the still fresh Snapdragon 670.

AI: Snapdragon 675 will deliver up to 50% overall improvements in AI applications.

Qualcomm's earlier strategy in this segment was to launch a higher-tier Snapdragon 600 chipset and a less powerful variant in the same series - much like the Snapdragon 660 and the Snapdragon 636 - and this cadence was largely driven by market conditions and manufacturer requirements.

It also supports front-facing or rear-mounted triple cameras with features such as portrait mode and 3D face unlock. It has a large 14-bit Image Sensor Processors and supports 4k video recording at 30fps and 1080p video capture at 120fps., Snapdragon 675 provides limitless slo-mo - capable of recording extended slo-mo video clips in HD, not limited to one second or shorter bursts.
