Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 platform announced, promises 40 percent improvements in device performance and graphics

Qualcomm has launched their latest Snapdragon 636 mobile platform for upcoming mid-range devices. The company claims that the Snapdragon 636 will boost a device’s performance and gaming by 40 percent and 10 percent respectively, in comparison to the previous Snapdragon 630 platform. 

The Snapdragon 636 SoC was announced in Hong Kong during the 4G/5G Summit on October 17 by Qualcomm Technologies VP of Product Management, Kedar Kondap. The SoC features the Qualcomm Kryo 260 CPU which can deliver a 40 percent increase in device performance when compared to the previous Snapdragon 630. 

The Qualcomm Adreno 509 GPU integrated with the Snapdragon 636 is said to boost a device’s gaming and browsing performance by 10 percent. The SoC is touted to provide an enhanced display experience with support for ultra-wide Full HD+ displays and assertive displays. Assertive displays optimise a device’s display according to its surrounding lighting conditions. This is all owing to integration of the Qualcomm TruPalette and the Qualcomm EcoPix technologies within the Adreno Visual Processing Subsystem.

Kondap said, “The introduction of the Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform allows OEMs to enjoy a smooth transition from the Snapdragon 660 and 630 Mobile Platforms while supporting the deployment of superior functionality and performance to end users.” 

The Snapdragon 636 SoC comes with the X12 LTE modem with up to 600Mbps speeds and supports up to 24 megapixels camera. Qualcomm will start shipping the new SoC to its customers starting November.

Apart from the new SoC announcement, the company also announced that it has successfully completed a 5G data test on a 5G modem chipset for devices. The tests were performed on the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem chipset, which the company claims delivered gigabit speeds. The test was performed in the 28GHz mmWave radio frequency band.
