845 is also built on a 10-nm process compared to 11nm, the model 675.

Qualcomm confirmed that the Snapdragon 675 supports frequency display refresh 120 Hz.

The Snapdragon 675 has also seemingly been designed keeping triple rear cameras in mind. Remember that we now have two magnifications on most optical zoom phones and three magnifications on Huawei phones with their own processor. The new chipset is called the Snapdragon 675 and it focuses on delivering a better gaming experience on Android smartphones, as well as support for triple-camera setups.

The Snapdragon 675 makes use of Qualcomm's new Kryo 460 architecture, which uses ARM CortexA76 processor core, normally found in flagship phones. Additionally, at the Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit, Manu Kumar Jain - VP, Xiaomi & MD, Xiaomi India revealed that Xiaomi will be launching a smartphone powered by Snapdragon 675 soon. Qualcomm wants to kill two birds with one stone with its newly announced Snapdragon 675 processor.

Qualcomm isn't able to say the same just yet, with a 7nm offering only arriving next year, but the silicon maker has served up something tempting for the mid-range market in the form of its new Snapdragon 675 CPU. In simple words, the chipset's performance CPUs are based on the new Cortex A76 cores.

The multi-core AI engine in the Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform improves AI applications by up to 50%. The Snapdragon 675 is also said to be up to 35 per cent faster for web browsing. Matrix support is limited to 25 megapixels on a single sensor and 16 megapixels on a dual camera. Connectivity is represented by an X12 LTE modem with a peak download speed of 600 Mbps. It also means support for 480FPS slow-motion recording. It comes with support for features such as telephoto, wide angle, and super-wide image capture, as well as enhanced portrait mode (Bokeh), 3D face unlock and "epic" selfies.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is already available to OEMs and start being used in consumer devices early next year.
