Qualcomm’s Snapdragon is one of the most powerful processors. It is used in designing mobile devices and some IoT devices. The chip is the most efficient, and it triggers the gadgets it is stocked into, to function seamlessly at high speed. Lots of smartphone users have been interested in Snapdragon and how it is being rated. If you check out the specs of your premium device before buying, you’d have noticed that there’s a number attached to the chipset model built-into your device. If you see further based on the number, your mobile price also varies. We are going to explain to you what this number is and how it is being decided.

Qualcomm Snapdragon Generations

Qualcomm designs Snapdragon chips with ARM RISC instruction set means that: “an SoC chip is liable to contain multiple CPU cores”. It also designs Adreno Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to act as a wireless modem to its Snapdragon chips for apt efficiency.

Also, Modern technologies such as the Hexagon Digital signal processor (DSP), Qualcomm Spectra Image Signal Processor (ISP), and others to boost users’ experiences are sophisticated with snapdragon.

However, Snapdragon chips are also used for making car accessories that have to contain chipsets. It is a high, efficient chip. Now, let’s discuss its generations and versions.

This article details the Snapdragon 400, 600, 700, and 800 Series. While this data was curled from the official Qualcomm’s website.

Processor Number Series Explanation

We have listed the various versions of Qualcomm’s snapdragon chipsets starting from the newest as well as the oldest version of the 400 series. Now, you can quickly know how premium your device is when you see its chipset’s model. If you own a Mobile having Qualcomm’s 800 series chip, then, you’re in for seamless multi-tasking, mobile gaming at any level, and a whole of other benefits. A lot of technologies were used to design Snapdragon 855/855+. These versions support 5G technology.

  • Snapdragon 4xx series was designed for budget devices.
  • They are efficient and come with some right technologies, they’re practically outdated at this time.
  • Snapdragon 6 series are the successors of the 400 series, and they come with Mid specs as expected. These series are seen on mid-range smartphones.
  • The Snapdragon 700 series comes with cutting-edge technologies having excellent performance/high efficiency.
  • There is the latest series – Snapdragon 800; this series features a lot of highly impressive chips that are designed with bleeding-edge technologies.
