Over the past few years, premium phones have gotten increasingly expensive. The Snapdragon 888, Qualcomm’s highest-performance chip to date, is really only found in devices that approach $1,000. But the result of that is that there’s more demand for mid-range phones, and Qualcomm wants to power those phones too. The company has launched four new mobile platforms, in the 4-series, 6-series, and 7-series.
The Snapdragon 480 Plus, 680, 695, and 778 Plus, are built to power the next generation of mid-range and premium mid-range phones. According to Qualcomm, mid-range phones are expected to power the adoption of 5G, especially in emerging regions. To that end, three of the four new platforms support 5G. Here’s a rundown of the chips and what they have to offer.
