Qualcomm may be working on a new Snapdragon chip for budget gaming phones

The Snapdragon SM6375 could be positioned somewhere between the Snapdragon 690 and Snapdragon 778G.

What you need to know

  • Qualcomm is reportedly working on two new chips for mid-range and budget devices.
  • The Snapdragon "SM6375" is tipped to be a gaming-focused chip with support for 144Hz displays.
  • A follow-up to the Snapdragon 665 with an integrated 5G modem is also said to be on the way.

A report from German tech publication WinFuture claims Qualcomm is readying new Snapdragon 600 series chipsets — including what could be its first lower mid-range gaming chipset.

Per the report, the upcoming Qualcomm SM6375 is an octa-core chipset with four Gold cores running at up to 2.5 GHz and four Silver cores clocked at up to 2.2 GHz. A total of four SKUs are currently in testing, with different clock speeds. The clock speed of the GPU is also said to vary between 800 and 960MHz, depending on the SKU.

More interestingly, the report claims Qualcomm is testing developer platforms featuring the SM6375 with up to 144Hz displays. This suggests the highest clocked version of the chipset could be marketed as a gaming chip, similar to the Snapdragon 778G and Snapdragon 780G.

Along with the gaming-focused SM6375, Qualcomm is apparently developing a new Snapdragon 600 series chipset aimed at budget phones. The chipset, which is tipped to carry the model number SM6225, could be a successor to the nearly three-year-old Snapdragon 665. Going by its model number, the chip will be positioned below Qualcomm's Snapdragon 690 5G that powers some of the best cheap Android phones.

While the core specs of the Snapdragon SM6375 haven't been revealed yet, the report suggests it is "closely related" to the Snapdragon 765 and will come with an integrated 5G modem. Qualcomm is said to be testing the chipset on developer devices with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage, and 90Hz FHD+ displays.

There's currently no word on when the SM6375 and SM6225 chips will be announced, but both of them are going to be manufactured by TSMC.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
