The focus of the Snapdragon 480 is not on video, but on the optimization for games, including the capabilities of 5G technology, which will not stop using gaming services by streaming.
The 8nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 feature a Kryo 460 CPU with a maximum clock speed of 2.0GHz.
Excitement about new mobile chips can be somewhat muted even when we're talking about flagship SoCs like the upcoming Snapdragon 888, but with Qualcomm targeting the Snapdragon 480 chip for use in $US250 ($325) gadgets and multiple device makers including Oppo, HMD, and OnePlus already committing to making new devices using the chip, the Snapdragon 480 is poised to be a very important piece of silicon. But starting this year, you're likely to see the feature make its way to a greater number of budget phones thanks to the introduction of Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 480 chipset and its built-in X51 modem.
The 5G connection has officially reached Qualcomm's entry level limit, with the announcement of the Snapdragon 480 today, a processor designed for the most modest smartphones, which should usher in a new era of affordable 5G connectivity.
Odisha all set to hold COVID vaccine mock drill today
The Central government plans to vaccinate almost 30 crore people in the first phase of drive in the next six to eight months. It has emerged that India has already managed to stockpile 50 million doses of the jabs.
5G finally went mainstream in 2020, but even the most affordable 5G phone released a year ago is too expensive for millions of people to consider. With Qualcomm FastConnect 6200, Snapdragon 480 also offers 2x2 Wi-Fi (dual Wi-Fi antennas) with Wi-Fi 6 features. And multi-band support can also enhance flexibility and usability.
Other notable enhancements include support for Bluetooth 5.1, some WiFi 6 technologies and Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4+ standard, which should translate into faster charging speeds - provided you have a compatible power adapter, of course. Compared with the previous generation platform (Snapdragon 460), it has a CPU and GPU performance improvement of up to 100%, and up to 70% AI performance improvement.
The chipset will allow users to capture all three cameras simultaneously. It also brings the first triple ISP to the 4-series for improved camera support and performance. It also lets you shoot photos in HEIF and HEVC video, and has slow-motion 720p video at up to 120fps.
But the biggest standout feature on the Snapdragon 480 is the performance. Now, the company has stepped things up a notch by launching the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480.
