Qualcomm brings 144Hz support to low-cost smartphones

Sources say Qualcomm is developing a new generation of the Snapdragon 6 series SoC that will add support for high refresh rate screens to mid-range phones.

According to a report from the German resource WinFuture, Qualcomm is developing a mobile platform codenamed SM6375, which includes an eight-core processor. It should come out under the name Snapdragon 695 and will have 4 large cores and 4 small ones. Qualcomm is currently testing various combinations of clock speeds: the large core is 2.1-2.5 GHz, the small core is in the 1.8-2.2 GHz range, and the GPU is 800, 940, or 950 MHz.

In addition to the Snapdragon 695, the company is reportedly planning to release a gaming version of the Snapdragon 695G. Both single-chip systems must support a 144Hz refresh rate.

In addition, Qualcomm is also developing the SM6225 SoC, which should be the successor to the Snapdragon 665. Currently, it is known that the SM6225 will use an eight-core processor, support 5G network, will have some features of the Snapdragon 765, and will also support 90Hz refresh rate.

It is reported that both platforms will be manufactured by TSMC, but it is currently unclear which workflow will be used for assembly.
