The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 are currently the benchmark in mobile processors for high-end devices, but this manufacturer does not neglect also lower product ranges, and has just renewed the Snapdragon 600 family.
It has done so with the launch of Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 630, processors that are aimed at mid-range devices that allow us to save significantly but without neglecting advanced features. These microphones come among other advantages with support Bluetooth 5 and Quick Charge 4, in addition to new features in the multimedia environment and biometric.
More for less, good evolution of the Snapdragon
The new Snapdragon 660 features an Adreno 512 GPU that promises to be 30% faster than its predecessors, the Snapdragon 65x. In this SoC we find a Kryo 260 CPU with four cores Cortex-A73 at 2.2 GHz and other four Cortex-A53 at 1.8 GHz that promise many altegrías in the field of performance.
The Snapdragon 630 has four Cortex A-53 cores at 2.2 GHz and four Cortex A-53s at a lower frequency, 1.8 GHz. They also have less L2 cache than the 660, but here the goal is to leapfrog To its direct predecessors, the Snapdragon 626. The Adreno 508 GPU should also earn a 30% return on the Adreno 506 from those predecessors.
We also gain connectivity, and these models inherit the Snapdragon X12 LTE modem from the Snapdragon 820/821, which with its Cat.12 mount are capable of offering up to 600 Mbps download and 150 Mbps upload. TruSignal adaptive antenna technology with carrier aggregation enables optimized mobile voice and data reception and also improves the efficiency of that battery-less connectivity.

Dual cameras to power
Another component common to the Snapdragon 660 and 630 is the Spectra 160 ISP, which, although somewhat inferior to the Spectra 180 model of the Snapdragon 835 supports many of its options for subjects related to digital photography. For example hybrid autofocus systems, 2PDAF (Dual Photodiode Phase-Detect AutoFocus) support, better electronic stabilization of video and better performance in low-light captures.
That ISP also has another eye-catching option: support dual camera systems and features the “soft” optical zoom feature when using two cameras with different focal lengths, in addition to supporting the data combination of both cameras to provide That eye-catching bokeh effect or to improve image quality.
The Quick Charge 4 charging technology that was available only in the Snapdragon 835 also comes with these models, promising 20% faster loading and 30% higher efficiency than the previous generation of this technology.
Another star is the arrival of Bluetooth connectivity 5, which in addition to offering that striking option of being able to output audio to two headphones at the same time is capable of doubling the transfer speed and quadrupling the signal range. Many improvements without doubt for those who will be referring in a mid-range that certainly will not have much to envy the high end of last year.Tags: Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660
