Qualcomm has today announced the Snapdragon 450 chipset.
With the greeting from smartphones like the BlackBerry KEYone and the Moto Z
Play, both of which used the Snapdragon 625 SoC to aid in providing an outstanding
battery life, the latest chip brings exceptionally efficient energy usage.
Budget smartphones gets better battery life with the new Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 chip

In actual fact, the Snapdragon 450 is fabricated using the
same 14nm process like the Snapdragon 625 and lately introduced 630 chipsets.
That compares to the 28nm process that the Snapdragon 435 uses, and gives
devices powered by the Snapdragon 450 chip four additional hours of battery
life.
A true octa-core CPU is found inside with eight Cortex-A53
cores running at a clock speed of 1.8GHz. The Adreno 506 GPU provides a 25%
improvement in speed over the Adreno 505 GPU found on the Snapdragon 435 SoC.
That is due to the small improvement in clock speed, and some thermal benefits.
The Snapdragon 450 chipset also supports video streaming at 60fps, twice the
speed supported by the Snapdragon 435.
The new chip is compatible with a dual camera setup
supporting a pair of 13MP snappers. That makes it the first 400 series chipset
to offer support for Bokeh photography. Quick Charge 3.0 works with the
Snapdragon 450, and displays with resolution of 1080 x 1920 and lower are
supported. With the X9 baseband chip, download speeds up to 300Mbps will run on
the Snapdragon 450.
“Weve made many
recent changes to the Snapdragon Mobile Platforms as part of our vision to
deliver the most advanced mobile functionality at the best possible value, and
the Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform is another realization of that vision. With
the Snapdragon 450, users are going to see a dramatically improved level of
performance, connectivity, battery life and imaging performance.”-
