Many times when talking about Qualcomm’s mobile phone chips, most of them are concentrated in high-end products, while gaming phones generally use the top models. Qualcomm is currently developing several new chips, mainly for the mid-range and entry-level markets. One of the chips will be positioned as an entry-level gaming phone, which can support a display with a 144Hz refresh rate.
According to WinFuture
reports, Qualcomm is currently developing at least two Snapdragon platforms, namely SM6375 and SM6225. Among them, SM6375 will have an eight-core CPU, including four Kryo Gold performance cores and four Kryo Silver efficiency cores. Qualcomm is currently testing the performance of the platform at different frequencies. There are at least four different frequency configurations, including:
- 4x Kryo Gold @ 2.5GHz + 4x Kryo Silver @ 2.2GHz
- 4x Kryo Gold @ 2.3GHz + 4x Kryo Silver @ 2.1GHz
- 4x Kryo Gold @ 2.2GHz + 4x Kryo Silver @ 2.0GHz
- 4x Kryo Gold @ 2.1GHz + 4x Kryo Silver @ 1.8GHz
Qualcomm has also configured GPUs of different frequencies on these test platforms with different frequency configurations, ranging from 800 MHz, 940 MHz to 960 MHz. In addition, Qualcomm is also testing the use of a 144Hz refresh rate display. It is believed that the first batch of gaming phones equipped with this platform will use this as the standard configuration. For a long time, Qualcomm has paid more attention to the field of mobile games and will position the Snapdragon chips with the “G” suffix in this market. It is not clear for the time being the name of SM6375, whether it is called Snapdragon 7xx series or Snapdragon 6xx series.
Another SM6225 will become a product of the Snapdragon 6xx series, but there is less information related to this chip.
It is understood that Qualcomm developers are also testing, and its platform is an FHD+@90Hz display, 6GB memory, and 128GB UFS 2.2 flash memory.
It is said that both chips will be manufactured by TSMC, but it is not certain which process will be used.
