It features the largest performance upgrade of the Adreno graphics processor, and is characterized by high imaging capabilities of up to 120 frames per second at 12 megapixels.
The new processor will contain the Qualcomm X60 modem, which was announced earlier this year, which uses 5nm manufacturing technology that promises better energy efficiency, and improvements to support for 5G networks across various mmWave and sub-6GHz spectrum bands. .
And between the new 5 nm architecture and the energy efficiency gained from the built-in modem, it seems that the new processor will provide fundamental improvements in battery life when using the fifth generation networks.
In addition to 5G improvements, Qualcomm mentioned many other features in the Snapdragon 888 processor, such as: The sixth generation of the AI Engine that promises a big leap in performance and power consumption when implementing AI tasks.
