Mostly it seems to be a compromise between price & power that Qualcomm has preferred to bring in to existence this time here at MWC 2018 with its Snapdragon 700 series of processors. The 700 series looks strategically designed to sit in between the mid-ranged 600 series & the top of the line 800 series. The Snapdragon 600 series i.e preferably found sitting inside the mid-ranged devices whereas the 800 series gets its place to power up top ranked devices like the very recently released at MWC from Samsung i.e Galaxy S9.
So this 700 series can be taken as a middle line processor that has been designed for those who like to have the power packed features like the premium top line smartphones but on to the cheaper devices that fits into the middle man’s budget. Mainly a compromise between money & power to deliver the best within a common man’s budget. As the Qualcomm’s Senior Vice President & GM i.e Alex Katouzian said, “The Snapdragon 700 Mobile Platform Series will bring premium tier technologies and features into more affordable devices”
Qualcomm To Bring Premium Features Into A Budget Smartphone With Its 700 Series Processors
With the 700 series, the company is also focussing on the day to day advancements for On-device AI & Camera options, device performances & mainly the power as the most beneficial & greatest advantages over the Snapdragon 600 series. According to the company the 700 series will also benefit its users with upto two times better AI computations over the Snapdragon 660 & also the power efficiency will get boosted by about 30% thus delivering faster performance & better backup.
Advancements are supported by the heterogeneous compute power of premium features including the Qualcomm Spectra ISP, Qualcomm Kryo CPU, Qualcomm Hexagon Vector Processor and Qualcomm Adreno Visual Processing subsystem. Through heterogeneous computing, the new architectures of the 700 Series i.e the Hexagon Vector Processor, Adreno Visual Processing subsystem, and Kryo CPU i.e work cooperatively to effortlessly capture and share videos, learn voice and speech and make your device last on a single charge without changing applications or settings. The Snapdragon 700 tier will also feature an advanced suite of wireless technologies with ultra-fast LTE, carrier Wi-Fi features, as well as enhanced Bluetooth 5.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series is all set to be made available for commercial customers by the 2018’s first half. So there’s no scope of any new devices powered up with the 700 series to be seen before the end of this year. So the Users might have to wait for getting their personalised premium featured smart devices at a reasonable budget may be by 2019.
