It now looks that the company is developing a new lower-end chipset based on 4nm technology to replace the Snapdragon 600 family of chipsets. The forthcoming Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 mobile platform, which is expected to replace the Snapdragon 695 CPU, has been fully detailed by dependable source Evan Blass.
Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 Specifications (Leaked)
The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 will allegedly have the component number SM6450 and will be built on a 4nm node. It will have a Qualcomm Kyro CPU with a maximum 2.2GHz clock speed. Up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM running at up to 2750MHz will be supported, along with USB 3.1. The chipset will have the Snapdragon X62 5G modem, which supports sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G bands.
