New Snapdragon 700 mobile platform brings AI features to affordable smartphones

Qualcomm logoQualcomm has introduced the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 Mobile Platform Series, designed to bring features and performance previously only available in the premium Snapdragon 800 Mobile Platform Series.

Meant to bridge the gap between the existing 600 and 800 series, the Snapdragon 700 series products will come with the multi-core Qualcomm AI Engine delivering up to 2x improvements for on-device AI applications compared to the Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform. Through heterogeneous computing, the new architectures of the 700 Series - the Hexagon Vector Processor, Adreno Visual Processing subsystem, and Kryo CPU - work cooperatively to capture and share videos, learn voice and speech and make your device last on a single charge without changing applications or settings.

By taking advantage of the Qualcomm Spectra ISP, the Snapdragon 700 Series will allow you to capture content during the day and night, in slow-motion, or with the help of AI. Qualcomm promises a multitude of additional professional grade camera features, supported by high-quality specs, to reside in the 700 Series.

The new architectures across the mobile platform include Kryo CPU and Adreno Visual Processing subsystem, which will offer up to 30% improvements in power efficiency, and better performance and battery life across numerous applications compared to the Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform. 700 Series products will also benefit from Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ technology, engineered to get up to 50% charge in only 15 minutes.

In terms of connectivity, the Snapdragon 700 Tier will feature a suite of wireless technologies with ultra-fast LTE, carrier Wi-Fi features, as well as enhanced Bluetooth 5.

Qualcomm will ship commercial samples of the first Snapdragon 700 Series in 1H 2018. So expect that retail devices containing the new SoCs to show up before the end of the year.
