Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G mobile platform is official (as a first SoC in the series with 5G support). It has the Snapdragon X51 5G modem, Qualcomm's fifth-generation AI engine, and support for new multimedia capabilities such as 4K HDR video capture, up to 120Hz refresh rate displays, and improved CPU and GPU performance, compared to the Snapdragon 675 SoC.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G is manufactured on Samsung's 8nm fabrication process and features eight Kryo 560 CPU cores and an Adreno 619L GPU. Compared to the Snapdragon 675, the new chip is said to offer up to 20 percent better CPU and up to 60 percent faster graphics performance. The Snapdragon X51 integrated 5G modem supports up to 2.5GB/s download and up to 660Mbps upload speeds. The modem also supports various 5G technologies such as standalone (SA), non-standalone (NSA) modes, the sub-6GHz bands, TDD, FDD, and dynamic spectrum sharing. Multimedia tasks should get a good boost in performance, thanks to the ability to record in HDR10 format and support for much faster refresh rate displays. There's also support for Qualcomm's FastConnect 6200 system that brings Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and 2x2 MU-MIMO configurations. The chipset can support up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM.
