The Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 mobile platform uses leading-edge 14 nm technology to power premium experiences in high-tier smartphones without draining the battery. With features like support for real time Bokeh camera effects, integrated X9 LTE, and Qualcomm Adreno 506 PC-class graphics, the Snapdragon 450 is designed to provide fast connectivity, vibrant displays, and performance that’s both powerful and efficient.
The Snapdragon 450’s biggest breakthroughs have have to do with raw processing power and battery life. Compared to the Snapdragon 435, its predecessor, the Snapdragon 450 boasts 25 percent faster compute performance and a 25 percent increase in graphics performance. That’s thanks to architectural improvements like a 14nm FinFET design, a first for Qualcomm’s 400 series, and eight 64-bit processing cores clocked at 1.8 GHz (up from 1.2 GHz and 1.4 GHz on the Snapdragon 435).
“When you’re opening up your email client or a social media application […] you’ll see launch times improved,” said Kedar Kondap, Vice President of Product Management with the company. “It’s a very visible user experience enhancement.”
Despite the enhanced compute performance, the Snapdragon 450 sips much less power than the outgoing Snapdragon 435. It consumes 30 percent less on average, which translates to about four more hours of battery life.
“We’ve made many recent changes to the [platform] as part of our vision to deliver the most advanced mobile functionality at the best possible value,” Kondap said. “With the Snapdragon 450, users are going to see a dramatically improved level of performance, connectivity, battery life, and imaging performance.”
