New Qualcomm Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429 Mobile Platforms Deliver Performance and Power Efficiency to Mass Market Smartphone Segment

Qualcomm announced three new additions to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and 400 tiers - the Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429 Mobile Platforms.

These platforms are engineered to bring higher performance, better battery life, more efficient designs, graphics and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities into the highest-selling Snapdragon tiers.

Snapdragon 632

The new Snapdragon 632 brings mainstream gaming, 4K video capture, artificial intelligence, and fast LTE speeds - all for an affordable price. Built on advanced 12nm FinFET process technology, the Snapdragon 632 boasts up to 40% higher performance over the previous generation Snapdragon 626, thanks to the combination of the Qualcomm Kryo 250 CPU (four performance cores and four efficiency cores) and Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU.

Camera aficionados can benefit from either a single 24MP single-camera or dual cameras at 13MP each, while display resolutions can scale up to FHD+. For fast cellular speeds, the Snapdragon 632 also includes the X9 LTE modem, which supports LTE Advanced technologies like carrier aggregation and download speeds up to 300 Mbps.

Snapdragon 439 and 429

The new Snapdragon 439 and 429 Mobile Platforms were created to help deliver popular mobile experiences for mass market, price-sensitive consumers. Both platforms are equipped with artificial intelligence capabilities that enhance the camera, voice, and security experience. Built with FinFET process technology advancements, the Snapdragon 439 and 429 Mobile Platforms improve CPU performance and power efficiency by up to 25% . They both feature the established X6 LTE modem.
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. Snapdragon 439 features 21MP single-camera and 8+8MP dual-cameras along with support for FHD+ display, while the Snapdragon 429 includes 16MP single-camera and 8+8MP dual-cameras with HD+ display.

Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429 are software compatible, as well as with Snapdragon 626, 625 and 450. The Snapdragon 439 and 429 are pin- and software-compatible.

Commercial devices based on Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429 are expected to launch in the second half of this year.

Dedicated Snapdragon Wear 2500 Platform

Qualcomm also today, at Mobile World Congress Shanghai, announced its first platform targeted specifically for 4G connected kids watches. The Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 platform is designed to deliver extended battery life, an integrated sensor hub with pre-optimized algorithms, low power location tracking, and the company's fifth generation 4G LTE modem, and optimized version of Android for kids.

Snapdragon Wear 2500 is designed for low power with up to 14 percent longer battery life across both active and standby modes of operation compared to prior generations. This extended battery life is supported via several new features including: Wearable PMIC, RF Front End (RFFE), location engine, Bluetooth streaming architecture, and processor and modem software optimizations. The new Wearable PMIC is designed to reduce Rock Bottom Sleep Current (RBSC) by up to 14 percent, is smaller by 38 percent and comes in a compact package that integrates power management, charger, fuel gauge, and haptics driver functionality. The new Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) based RF PAs are designed to consume up to 20 percent lower peak power compared to their predecessors.

The Snapdragon Wear 2500 platform is based on Qualcomm Technologies fifth generation 4G LTE multi-mode modem. Using the latest in global navigation satellite system and sensor fusion approach, the platform supports more accurate location tracking and is designed to implement reliable geofencing use cases, important for parents eager to track their child's location accurately.

Additionally, the Snapdragon Wear 2500 hardware platform is accompanied with an optimized version of Android for kid watches. Based on Android "O", this version fits in a 512MB memory footprint, is designed to consume low power by shutting off capabilities not needed, right sizes the modem for wearables use cases, integrates the sensor hub for low power highly accurate sensing, and adds kid watch specific features.

Based on quad-core A7 processors and an Adreno-class graphics engine, the Snapdragon Wear 2500 platform is designed to bring rich messaging and integrated learning experiences to children. The platform supports a five mega-pixel camera for parents to get in touch with their child over a video call. The platform incorporates Qualcomm Voice Activation and supports popular AI-based voice assistants, making it possible to converse naturally and access educational content on the web. The platform also integrates NXP's next generation NFC solution, which is designed to allow kids to leave their wallet behind for everyday purchases at school.

The platform integrates an ultra-low power sensor hub and comes with pre-optimized sensor algorithms. Using these sensors can help children to stay active and fit while parents can monitor the health of their loved ones. Additionally, the platform supports gesture-based gaming and entertainment applications so children continue to enjoy their experience with the kid watch.

Qualcomm is collaborating with Huawei as the lead customer for the Snapdragon Wear 2500 platform and is working closely with InvenSense, Inc. to extend choice of sensor algorithms to its customers.

Qualcomm is shipping commercial samples of the Snapdragon Wear 2500 platform now.
