Qualcomm may soon bring a new 5G chipset specifically for the budget phones. Going by the latest tip, it is going to be a part of Snapdragon 6-series.
According to the tipster, Digital Chat Station on Weibo, the codename of this chipset is sm6350 and it has two large cores clocked at a 2.25Ghz and six power-efficient cores running at 1.8GHz. It is going to have Adreno 615 GPU with a maximum frequency of 850MHz.
Qualcomm offers 865 SoC for high-end phones and also readied the Snapdragon 765G chipsets for the mid-range phones. But there have been no 5G solutions for the entry-level phones. But it looks like a wave on the same is about to come where we would see some affordable phones carrying the 5G chipset as well.
The tipster also makes mention that MediaTek is also prepping MT6853, a chipset for low-budget phones and so does Huawei. It is possible that Huawei will bring Kirin 720 5G chipsets for the entry-level phones.
The tipster has not shared any other details on the Snapdragon 6-series chipset like what are going to be those first phones to employ this chipset. But expect to hear more about the same in the coming weeks or months.
