As mentioned above, the chipset is fabricated on 10nm process, and features a third-generation custom Kryo 360 CPU built on ARM Cortex technology. Out of the eight cores, two are performance cores with clock speed of up to 2.2GHz, and six are efficiency cores with clock speed of 1.7GHz. Qualcomm says that the new chipset offers 20 percent performance improvements, 15 percent faster app launch times, and 25 percent faster web browsing compared to Snapdragon 660 SoC.

For graphics, you get Adreno 616 GPU which offers 35 percent faster graphics rendering, while decreasing power consumption by 40 percent while gaming and watching 4K HDR videos compared to Snapdragon 660. Qualcomm also promises 20 percent reduction in power consumption when streaming videos.

Overall, the Snapdragon 710 SoC is designed to offer superior performance and a long-lasting battery life. The chipset also supports Quick Charge 4+ technology which can quickly charge the battery from empty state to 50 percent in just 15 minutes.

Artificial Intelligence

Let s admit, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the terms that you are more likely to hear on a daily basis, and be it smartphone makers, software makers or chipmakers, everyone wants to leverage the tech. The Snapdragon 710 comes with multi-core AI Engine which Qualcomm claims to deliver two times performance improvements in AI applications compared to Snapdragon 660.

Leveraging AI capabilities, the chipset can run on-device AI applications quickly and efficiently. With AI-engine at heart, the Snapdragon 710 can perform faster face unlock, help with biometrics, classify food, detect objects in a photo, and add bokeh effects by separating the foreground from background. It also enables Smart Album where the AI can detect and categorize photos based on place, faces, pets, landscapes, sky, sea, greenery, and more. It can also speed up video style transfer and add Augmented Reality (AR) effects to your photos.

Faster connectivity

The Snapdragon 710 SoC comes with X15 LTE modem which Qualcomm says is 2.5 times faster compared to Cat 7 LTE on competing chipsets. With 4X4 MIMO technology for better signal quality and faster download speeds, you can get peak download speeds of up to 800Mbps. Be it streaming 4K videos, downloading movies or music albums, Qualcomm is promising faster speeds, even when the signal is weak.

Camera

The camera has become an important aspect of the smartphones today, and the new Spectra 250 engine is designed to enable you to capture good quality photos and record high-quality photos. It also includes noise reduction and image stabilization for low-light photography. With AI at heart, the Snapdragon 710 also enables real-time bokeh effects, thanks to active depth sensing and deep portrait mode.

The chipset supports a single camera with up to 32-megapixel resolution, and dual cameras with up to 20-megapixel. It also enables super slow motion video capture, 40 percent lower power consumption with 4K UHD video capture, speedy video style transfer and more.

Lastly, the Snapdragon 710 chipset is the first outside of Snapdragon 800-series to support 4K HDR playback, meaning you can enjoy high-definition content playback from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. It also supports display resolution up to QHD+ (2K). The first line of smartphones running on the new Snapdragon 710 mobile platform are expected in the second quarter of 2018.
