Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 Mobile Platform
The all-new Snapdragon 632 SoC brings some of the trending features to the lower mid-range smartphones including mainstream gaming, 4K video recording, artificial intelligence and faster LTE speeds. Qualcomm says the chipset is built on 14nm advanced FinFET process technology and it delivers 40% better performance than the Snapdragon 626 SoC, which was unveiled at the start of 2017.

The Snapdragon 632 SoC has custom Kryo 250 CPU cores, and the GPU is still the same- Adreno 506. The chipset comes with a maximum clock speed of 1.8GHz. The SoC is capable of handling a single 24MP rear camera or dual cameras of 13MP each and the supports 18:9 displays with Full HD+ resolution.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 and 429 Mobile Platforms
Coming to the all-new budget chipsets, they’re said to improve performance by 25% over their predecessors. Qualcomm has added the X6 LTE modem inside both the processors, which is the same one it used on the Snapdragon 430 and 435. This LTE modem is capable of delivering 75 Mbps downlink and 75 Mbps uplink speeds. Both the chipsets support dual 4G/dual VoLTE functionality to take on the recently launched chipsets from MediaTek. Both the chipsets are built on 12nm FinFET technology, meaning they’ll have excellent power-saving capabilities.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 is equipped with an octa-core CPU and includes the Adreno 505 GPU with up to 20% faster graphics rendering. The Snapdragon 429 scales to an Adreno 504 GPU, for up to a whopping 50% improvement in graphics rendering.

Furthermore, the Snapdragon 439 offers support for 21MP single-camera and 8MP+8MP dual-cameras along with support for Full HD+ display, while the Snapdragon 429 includes support for 16MP single-camera and 8MP+8MP dual-cameras with the HD+ display.

Chakri is a go-to guy for your next smartphone recommendation. Back in his engineering days, he used to play with smartphones by installing custom ROMs and that passion got him into the tech industry. He still goes nuts about a smartphone knocking his door for review. Currently managing everything at Telecom Talk, Chakri is trying to master PUBG Mobile in his free time.

Redmi 6A will either have SD429 or MTK A22…
Although it might be A22, since it will be cheaper with similar features…

Why Qualcomm didn’t go for 12 nm Architecture (in SD 632)??

Net cost effectiveness would be less and would reduce the overall profit margin, I think they are trying out 12nm architecture with SD429 &SD439…
