After lunching the the successor of the Snapdragon 660 SoC, the 10nm Snapdragon 670 chipset Qualcomm has unveiled yet another mid-ranger the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675. The main highlight of the Snapdragon 675 is that it comes with the latest eight Kyro 460 CPUs (up to 2GHz), out of which, two ARM A76 cores are high-performance ones whereas the rest six are ARM A55 efficiency cores.
Features of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform provides new architectures and performance improvements in the following areas:
The most advanced games demand a lot out of a smartphone, which is where the Snapdragon mobile platform’s heterogeneous compute advantage comes into play, with Snapdragon 675 designed to deliver a high frame-rate, smooth gaming experience.
Qualcomm Technologies is working with game developers to deliver next level gaming experiences to the 600 tier. A number of specific games and game engines have been optimized including Unity, Unreal, Messiah, and NeoX. Qualcomm Technologies also supports popular tools and APIs, including Vulkan, OpenGL 3.2, OpenCL, and Snapdragon profiler.
Unleashing the incredible power of the Qualcomm Spectra 200 series ISP, Snapdragon 675 is designed to enable smartphone users to capture images and videos in professional-grade quality during the day and night, in slow-motion and with the help of AI.
Snapdragon 675 supports a triple camera configuration in the front or back, supporting features such as telephoto, wide angle, and super-wide image capture, as well as enhanced portrait mode (Bokeh), 3D face unlock and ‘epic’ selfies.
Additionally, Snapdragon 675 provides limitless slo-mo – capable of recording extended slo-mo video clips in HD, not limited to one second or shorter bursts.
Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform with a multi-core AI Engine is engineered to deliver up to 50% overall improvements in AI applications. The multi-core AI Engine is designed to improve mobile devices’ ability to acquire information and become the ultimate personal assistant by capturing photos and videos, learning and adapting to a user’s voice, and optimizing battery life.
Through heterogenous computing, the Hexagon DSP, Adreno GPU, and Kryo CPU– are engineered to work cooperatively to run AI applications on-device faster and more efficiently. Additional AI use cases supported on Snapdragon 675 include camera (scene and object detection, image style transfer, portrait relighting), security (face unlock, payment security), voice and translation. Global ISVs also support the platform including Megvii (Face++), NetEase, SenseTime, Thundersoft, and Trio.AI.
Beyond the enhancements to bolster gaming, camera and AI experiences, Snapdragon 675 includes:
- DSP security designed to provide superior protection when unlocking a device via face recognition
- Snapdragon X12 modem supports downlink speeds up to 600Mbps and 3x carrier aggregation
- Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4+ is capable of charging a smartphone battery from zero to 50% in 15 minutes1
- Support for Qualcomm® Aqstic™ and Qualcomm® aptX™ audio technologies

Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform
The upgraded Kryo 460 CPU, built on Arm Cortex technology, provides a 20% boost in overall performance from the previous generation – empowering more efficient multitasking and powerful gaming.
The workload is balanced between 8 cores – 6 efficiency cores for everyday interactions and 2 performance cores, so at the end of the day, you can win every level, perhaps even on just one single charge
The Qualcomm Spectra 250L ISP camera module is engineered to capture amazing detail at up to 25 megapixels in vivid, true-to-life color. This platform also boasts enhanced features such as three camera support for capturing super-wide images or up to 5x optical zoom, portrait mode, and breakthrough limitless HD slo-mo recording – at up to a dazzling 480 fps (frames per second).
With multiple cores dedicated to advanced artificial intelligence, the Qualcomm AI Engine fuels cutting-edge and compelling on-device interactions for a smart, smooth user experience. Support for a robust hardware and software ecosystem, plus the major AI frameworks, means this platform is designed to tackle the latest AI challenges.
The Snapdragon X12 LTE Modem supports cutting-edge features and remarkable connectivity – even in many congested areas that see severe traffic. The modem cranks peak download speeds up to 600 Mbps and peak upload speeds up to 150 Mbps – empowering users to get virtually whatever they want, right when the want it.
The Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform is available today and is expected to be found in consumer devices in Q1 2019.
