The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 processor.
Qualcomm after launching the Snapdragon 712 claimed it to be a faster processor as compared to its predecessors and other competitors. It consists of 8 Kryo 360 cores and runs them at a clock frequency of 2.3GHz. The Snapdragon 712 is based on the same 10 nm architecture as the other mid-range processors. It comes with the Adreno 616 GPU and Qualcomm Hexagon 685 DSP. Another feature it bags is the support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+. The TrueWireless Stereo plus and better broadcast technologies would surely provide better Bluetooth audio.
When could we witness it in our phones???
As the Snapdragon 712 has been just launched, we would not witness it anytime soon. But this mid-range processor would be seen in the mid-tier smartphones in late 2019 or in early 2020. We want to see this great mid-range processor in smartphones soon!!!
