Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has launched its new Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 Mobile Platform in a groundbreaking development in the tech industry. This innovative technology aims to make advanced mobile experiences and 5G accessible to a wider global audience, potentially revolutionising the budget tech market.
The new platform promises superior performance, better photography and videography, seamless multitasking, and faster, reliable connections.
The Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 mobile platform has significantly upped the ante for performance in the budget tier. Notably, it is the first 4nm platform in the 4-series, which implies improved efficiency and extended battery life.
The Qualcomm Kryo CPU of this platform clocks an impressive 2.2 GHz, delivering a performance improvement of up to 10%. This marks a new benchmark for performance in the value tier.
Moreover, Qualcomm has addressed a common pain point for users – battery life. With its Quick Charge 4+ Technology, the platform offers a refill of up to 50% battery in just 15 minutes. This enhancement is set to liberate users from the constraints of limited device usage during the day.
The platform also supports 120fps FHD+ displays, ensuring a smoother and clearer viewing experience and enhancing user interaction with the device.
Camera and AI: The Pocket Professional
The camera capabilities of the Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 cater well to photography enthusiasts. The platform offers electronic image stabilization and faster autofocus, ensuring sharper images, even with moving subjects.
The Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 also debuts Multi Camera Temporal Filtering (MCTF) in the hardware, enhancing the video quality by reducing noise.
Furthermore, the AI enhancements include an AI-based low-light function, which guarantees sharp images in dimly lit conditions. The AI-enhanced background noise removal function also promises clearer audio on calls and videos, making it a versatile tool for both professional meetings and casual interactions in noisy environments.
Connectivity: Speedy and Robust
The Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 is powered by the Snapdragon X61 5G Modem-RF System, ensuring super-fast speeds and support for a larger range of networks, frequencies, and bandwidths globally.
With Qualcomm Wi-Fi 5, users can look forward to a robust and rapid Wi-Fi connection, optimal for gaming, streaming, and more.
Adoption by Major Brands
Key Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) brands such as Redmi and Vivo are expected to be the early adopters of the Snapdragon 4 Gen 2.
Commercial devices with this game-changing tech are predicted to hit the market in the second half of 2023. Users can thus anticipate experiencing this transformative technology shortly.
The Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 Mobile Platform embodies Qualcomm’s commitment to democratizing advanced tech and 5G. As it becomes a part of everyday devices, it holds the potential to redefine user expectations from budget tech.
