Catered to mid-range smartphones and tablets, the Snapdragon 450 is the first in its series to use 14nm FinFET manufacturing process and is designed to deliver significant improvements in battery life, graphics and compute performance, imaging and LTE connectivity over its predecessor, the Snapdragon 435 Mobile Platform.

The Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform focuses on improvements compared to its predecessor in four key categories of features:

Improved CPU and GPU

The Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform uses eight ARM Cortex A53 cores, which results in 25 percent of computing performance compared to its predecessor- Snapdragon 435. Additionally, the platform is paired with the Adreno 506 GPU, which also delivers 25 percent better graphics performance over the Snapdragon 435.

Battery life

“Power management improvements result in up to four additional hours of usage time compared to the Snapdragon 435, as well as up to a 30 percent reduction in power when gaming, helping consumers stay connected and productive for much longer,” says Qualcomm.

Along with the 14nm manufacturing process, the Snapdragon 450 platform delivers insane battery life. The Snapdragon 450 also comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support, which can charge a smartphone from zero to 80 percent in about 35 minutes.

Camera and multimedia

The Snapdragon 450 is the first in the 400-tier to support real-time Bokeh (Live Bokeh) effect. It is also designed to improve on previous generations by including support for enhanced dual camera at 13MP+13MP, or single camera support up to 21MP; hybrid autofocus; and 1080p video capture and playback at up to 60fps, enabling slow motion capture.

The Snapdragon 450 also includes support for 1920 x 1280 full HD displays, as well as the Qualcomm Hexagon DSP, which enables multimedia, camera and sensor processing at greater performance and lower power than the previous generation.

Connectivity and USB

With the Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform, users can enjoy faster LTE speeds, thanks to the Snapdragon X9 LTE modem, which utilises 2x20MHz Carrier Aggregation in both downlink and uplink for peak speeds of 300 Mbps and 150 Mbps respectively. The Snapdragon 450 also supports USB 3.0 which is first in its tier to support fast USB data transfer.

“We’ve made many recent changes to the Snapdragon Mobile Platforms as part of our vision to deliver the most advanced mobile functionality at the best possible value, and the Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform is another realisation of that vision,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “With the Snapdragon 450, users are going to see a dramatically improved level of performance, connectivity, battery life and imaging performance,” he further added.
