With this year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Qualcomm updated its naming scheme, and gradually the new branding is spreading to other chips. We now have a fresh look at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 mid-range SoC.
Recent spec sheets for the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chip, which will replace the Snapdragon 695, were released by Evan Blass. The Moto G Stylus 5G, Poco X4 Pro, and OnePlus Nord N20 are a few devices that use that processor.
What has changed this time? There are a few intriguing details scattered throughout, such as the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1’s construction using a 4nm technology, which is the same as Qualcomm’s current flagships. The 4nm technology is also used to create the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. Given that the Snapdragon 695 was created using a 6nm technology, this should, in principle, result in increased power efficiency.
Camera capabilities are a significant addition. The new image signal processor (ISP) offers photo and video capture at resolutions up to 108MP and 4K HDR, respectively. Since 4K video was absent on Snapdragon 695 and other Snapdragon 6-Series CPUs, this is undoubtedly a welcome upgrade for these more cheap devices.
According to reports, the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 will support displays with up to 120Hz at FHD.
Additionally, the Snapdragon X62 modem with 5G and mmWave compatibility, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 LE, and other features are included into this chip.
Although the precise release date of the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 is currently unknown, it would appear that it would happen sooner rather than later.
