Qualcomm reportedly has two new mid-range SoCs to launch soon. As per the German tech blog WinFuture, these are SM6375 and SM6225. The marketing names of the two are currently unknown, but the publication has shared some tech information around the two.
To begin, the Snapdragon SM6375 has an octa-core CPU, featuring four Kryo Gold performance cores and four Kryo Silver efficiency cores. The report notes Qualcomm is currently testing up to four SKUs of the same platform with different clock speeds.
- 4x Gold cores at 2.5GHz + 4x Silver cores 2.2GHz
- 4x Gold cores at 2.3GHz + 4x Silver cores 2.1GHz
- 4x Gold cores at 2.2GHz + 4x Silver cores 2.0GHz
- 4x Gold cores at 2.1GHz + 4x Silver cores 1.8GHz
The GPU frequency of these models ranges between 800MHz, 940MHz, and 960MHz. As per the report, one of these variants can power 144Hz refresh rate displays. The report points out this particular model might release as a gaming-oriented model alongside the base model. It is, however, unknown whether the Snapdragon SM6375 belongs to the 7xx series or the 6xx series.
The second anticipated chipset that is SM6225, is believed to be the successor of the Snapdragon 665 that came out in 2019. Reportedly, Qualcomm is testing the chip on a developer unit that has a 90Hz FHD+ display, 6GB RAM, and 128GB UFS 2.2 storage. Based on the given details, it appears Qualcomm might put the Snapdragon SM6225 in the lower mid-range or budget smartphones segment.
