Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 710, the first system-on-a-chip in its 700 series mobile platform. The 710 finds space between the Snapdragon 600 series and Snapdragon 800 series for devices that need to balance performance and cost. The 710 is based on Qualcomm's Kryo 360 CPU, with six cores using a 10nm process. Two 2.2 GHz cores target high-power tasks and four 1.7 GHz cores target low-power tasks. The 710 is pared with the Adreno 616 GPU. Together, these contribute to a 20% boost in performance while dropping power draw by 40% for 4K video playback and gaming. Similar to the Snapdragon 845, the Snapdragon 710 brings artificial intelligence / machine learning to phones and their cameras. Qualcomm claims the 710 delivers platform-wide AI optimizations with the power to handle bokeh, animoji, face detection, and more. Together with the Spectra 250 image signal processor, 710-powered cameras will be able to support real-time noise reduction, active depth sensing, slow-motion video capture, video noise reduction, and image stabilization. The chip supports 10-bit color, 4K HDR video playback, Qualcomm's Aqstic, aptX, and Aqstic Voice UI, as well as displays up to quad HD+. On the connectivity front, the 710 includes Qualcomm's X15 modem with 4x4 MIMO and LAA for max download speeds of 800 Mbps. The chip also packs Bluetooth 5 and dual-band wifi. Other features include support for Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0 and the Unity/Unreal gaming engines. Qualcomm says devices with the Snapdragon 710 will debut during the second quarter of the year.
