Qualcomm unveiled 3 new processors at the MWC Shanghai 2018- The Snapdragon 632 for low-end to mid range smartphones, and the Snapdragon 439 and Snapdragon 429 for low-end budget smartphones.

The Snapdragon 632, build on advanced FinFET technology, comes in an octa-core setup which consists of Qualcomm’s very own eight Kryo 250 cores along with Adreno 506 GPU. It has a Snapdragon X9 LTE modem so download and upload speeds of up to 300 Mbps and 150 Mbps can be expected respectively. It also supports displays of FHD+ resolution which is 2160*1080p. A single 24MP camera or a dual camera setup of 13MP+13MP sensors are supported on the 632 mobile platform. Overall the chipset packs in a 40% performance increase compared to its predecessor which is the Snapdragon 626.

The Snapdragon 439 also features an octa-core CPU setup consisting of 8 ARM cortex A53 cores and an Adreno 505 GPU. While the Snapdragon 429 comes with a quad-core CPU of four ARM cortex A53 cores along with Adreno 504 GPU. Both of them come with support for 8MP+8MP dual camera setup but the 439 can support a single camera of 21MP whereas the 429 supports a single camera of up to 16MP. The resolution supported by the 439 is FHD+ and the 429 it is HD+. Both of them feature the Snapdragon X6 LTE Modem.

Both of these processors improve performance and efficiency by 25% compared to their previous generation namely the 430 and the 425 respectively.

As both of them support dual camera you can now expect a lot of smartphone makers to feature a dual camera setup even in their low-end budget smartphones.

All the three processors announced by Qualcomm can be seen in smartphones by the mid of the third quarter of 2018.
