New Qualcomm chips will speed up budget Android phones


Getting a good, cheap Android phone can be complicated. There are many aspects that you need to take into consideration, but one of the most important is performance. Qualcomm wants to make that decision easier, as its latest entry-level chipset strives to make budget phones faster than ever.

Qualcomm has announced two budget chips geared toward mid-range and entry-level phones, Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 4 Gen 1. These are the successors to the Snapdragon 600 and Snapdragon 400 chips, as part of Qualcomm’s ongoing rebranding. efforts (which saw Snapdragon 8/8 + Gen 1 for the flagship and 7 Gen 1 for the higher mid-range phones).

Both chips take over where the Snapdragon 695 5G and Snapdragon 480 5G left off. 6 Gen 1 is the highest end of one of the chips. It’s fabricated on a 4nm process, its CPU clock speeds are up to 2.2GHz, and it supports LPDDR5 memory. On the other hand, the first generation fourth generation uses a 6 nm process. Clock speeds are up to 2.0GHz, and in terms of memory, it supports LPDDR4X memory.
