Qualcomm debuts Snapdragon 616 processor

The list of Qualcomm Snapdragon processor has grown with the addition of a new member that is called Snapdragon 616. There hasn’t been an official launch event, though, and the reason behind might be that the Snapdragon 616 is not much different than the Snapdragon 615.

The new chip already powers the Huawei Maimang 4 smartphone and includes eight Cortex-A53 cores, four of which run at 1.7 GHz, while the remaining four run at 1.2 GHz. This seems to be one of the differences between the Snapdragon 616 and the Snapdragon 615, whose “slow” cores run at 1 GHz. The chip also houses Adreno 405 graphics, which could have been accelerated compared to the Snapdragon 615 and an X5 LTE Cat 4 modem.

The new chip will likely receive widespread adoption any time soon. Given that it will retire the Snapdragon 615 in the near future.
