Snapdragon 712 arrives with faster CPU and Quick Charge 4+

Yordan, 07 February 2019

Qualcomm announced a new addition to its chipset portfolio - the Snapdragon 712. It is built on the 10 nm process and comes as a modest upgrade to the popular Snapdragon 710. It has faster octa-core processor “that adds performance boost and makes it a powerhouse for gaming and beyond”.

The key difference is the CPU's eight Kryo 360 cores now run at 2.3 GHz compared to 2.2 GHz. The 712 also brings Quick Charge 4+ instead of Quick Charge 4 and better Bluetooth audio, thanks to the TrueWireless Stereo Plus and Broadcast Audio technologies.

The Snapdragon 712 keeps the Adreno 616 GPU and the Hexagon 685 DSP, as well as most of the other specs. The modem remains a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X15 that supports LTE Cat.15 downlink and Cat.13 uplink, reaching peak speeds of 800 Mbps and 150 Mbps, respectively. Camera support stays at up to 20 MP dual camera or 32 MP single shooter with the same Spectra 250 ISP.

Clearly 7nm technology is needed to really ramp up the speed. 3GHz to 3.2GHz would be more like it, not 2.3GHz.
