Snapdragon 6150 and 7150 Are Next Mid-Range Chip from Qualcomm
The US chip company Qualcomm wold present next flagship processor Snapdragon 8150 and will also introduce at least two new mid-range SoCs, the Snapdragon 6150 and Snapdragon 7150.
Next year Qualcomm will probably hold an event where the manufacturer will announce the new Snapdragon 855 high-end chip. But it also seems that the manufacturer will show up two new chippers for mid-classers.
As can be seen from import databases and repositories in the Github open source development platform, the company is currently testing two new mid-range processors, which will probably be widely used in various smartphones from next year. As the names suggest, the Qualcomm SM6150 is located somewhat below the Qualcomm SM7150.
Snapdragon 6150 and Snapdragon 7150 will be the new exponents of the 600 and 700 series and will be based on an eight-core architecture and Cryo CPU with frequencies that to date are not yet known. But there is no shortage of details on these new chipsets in terms of display and photographic equipment. Let’s go in order.
Allocation of the two new chips is already possible, however, as some information is available on equipping the development boards used by Qualcomm. Thus, the Snapdragon 6150 is more likely to be found in rather cheap middle-class devices, because the DTP board used for the processor only uses 2160 x 1080 pixels (FHD+) working display. The display diagonal is at least 5.99 inches.
The 7150 chip would have a 12-camera, and a 13-megapixel camera is installed as dual cam rear camera, while a single 13-megapixel front camera is in use. With the new 7150, the equipment of the test platform of Qualcomm is noticeably better: there is also a display held in 18:9 format, whose resolution is indicated by QHD+.
This would mean that the panel works with at least 2880 x 1440 pixels and thus offers a resolution that was previously reserved for premium-class smartphones. Even mid-range models have only been featured with FHD+ panels, so Qualcomm and its hardware partners are likely to leapfrog the Snapdragon 7150.
The DTP Snapdragon 7150 cameras are just the same as the 6150 – at least because of the information we have on the back – a dual cam unit with 12- and 13-megapixel sensors each. On the front, a camera sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels is used.
Apart from the details above, little is known about Qualcomm’s two new mid-range SoCs. With the Snapdragon 675, the company recently presented a drilled version of the Snapdragon 670.
Both Snapdragon 6150 and 7150 should be presented at the beginning of next year, with a launch following that of the top-of-the-range 8150 model. At the moment there are no precise dates, but we are pretty sure these SoCs will dominate the band average for smartphones of 2019.
