Snapdragon 6150 Seen On Geekbench, MediaTek M70 5G Modem Revealed
A Snapdragon SM6150 chipset has recorded a score on the Geekbench database. It features an octa-core processor and will possibly be launched as a 600-series chip.
Nothing much as per information was disclosed by Geekbench other than one clock speed â€“ 1.8GHz. That could possibly be for the little cores and doesnâ€™t account for boost, so itâ€™s not much to go on. But the score is.
The single core performance is defined by one of the big cores and it looks like a match for Snapdragon 845â€™s Kryo 385 Gold cores (at 2.8GHz). The multi-core performance is closer to that of Snapdragon 710, meaning itâ€™s likely a 2+6 split between big and little cores. Note that this score most likely comes from a reference design board rather than a phone.
In other news, MediaTek showed off its Helio M70 5G modem at the China Mobile Global Partner Conference in Guangzhou. The modem supports 5G NR and promises up to 5Gbps bandwidth. A key feature is the backwards compatibility, which covers 4G, 3G and even 2G. This means that the M70 can be the only modem in a device, simplifying the design significantly.
Recently, MediaTek also teased the imminent Helio P90 chipset, which will offer â€œgroundbreaking AIâ€ performance thanks to the second-generation APU and revised NeuroPilot AI 2.0 platform.
