[Specs Comparison] Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 vs 425 vs 618 vs 620


Qualcomm just unveiled its newest batch of chipsets – the Snapdragon 415, 425, 618, and 620. As usual with processors, a surplus of numbers usually drown us and one can easily get lost among all the specs. That’s why we decided to treat you to a straightforward representation of the specs sheets that Qualcomm has provided. In the first table right below, you can see some of the more important specs of the new range of chipsets.

Chipset CPU GPU Memory DSP
Snapdragon 415 Octa Cortex-A53 cores (<1.4GHz) Adreno 405 LPDDR3@667MHz eMMC 4.5 SD 3.0 (UHS-I) Hexagon™ V50 DSP
Snapdragon 425 8 x Cortex-A53 cores (<1.7GHz) Adreno 405 LPDDR3@933MHz eMMC 5.1 SD 3.0 (UHS-I) Hexagon™ V50 DSP
Snapdragon 618 2x Cortex-A72 (<1.8GHz) + 4 x Cortex-A53 (<1.2GHz) “Next-gen” Adreno Dual channel LPDDR3 (933MHz) Hexagon™ V56 DSP
Snapdragon 620 4 x Cortex-A72 (<1.8GHz) + 4 x Cortex-A53 (<1.2GHz) “Next-gen” Adreno Dual channel LPDDR3 (933MHz) Hexagon™ V56 DSP

Moving on to the rest of the specs sheets, we get to compare the LTE connectivity capabilities of Qualcomm’s newest. Judging from the specs, all of these (save for the Snapdragon 415) are pretty even-stevens.

Chipset Modem LTE Category Theoretical data transfer speeds Dual LTE SIM support VoLTE
Snapdragon 415 Qualcomm X5 LTE Cat.4 150Mbps download; 50Mbps upload ×
Snapdragon 425 Qualcomm X8 LTE Cat.7 300Mbps download; 100Mbps upload
Snapdragon 618 Qualcomm X8 LTE Cat.7 300Mbps download; 100Mbps upload
Snapdragon 620 Qualcomm X8 LTE Cat.7 300Mbps download; 100Mbps upload

We are not done yet, mind you. The rest of the connectivity features of Qualcomm newest have not slipped under our noses. As you can see, the two Snapdragon 400 representatives are endowed with similar features, and so are the ones of the 600 series.

Chipset Wi-Fi Bluetooth GPS
Snapdragon 415 802.11ac (2.4/5.0GHz) Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) BT4.1 + BLE IZat™ Gen8C Lite
Snapdragon 425 802.11ac (2.4/5.0GHz) Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) BT4.1 + BLE IZat™ Gen8C Lite
Snapdragon 618 Qualcomm® VIVE™ 1-stream 802.11ac Bluetooth Smart v4.1 IZat™ Gen8C
Snapdragon 620 Qualcomm® VIVE™ 1-stream 802.11ac Bluetooth Smart v4.2 IZat™ Gen8C

Last, but certainly not least, we have put together the video/display capabilities of the new chipsets. Just as expected, the brand-new Snapdragon 620 is the most potent of the bunch, as it is able to record 4K video at 30 frames per second as well as 1080p one at no more than 120fps. It also supports two image signal processors (both of which can be up to 21MP in size). The show-stopping feature is its ZSL support – ZSL, if you don’t know, stands for “zero shutter lag” and allows you to take a picture as soon as you tap the shutter button.

Chipset Video Camera Display
Snapdragon 415 1080p@30fps playback (w/ HEVC); Full HD H.264 capture Single ISP; up to 13MP Up to 720p
Snapdragon 425 1080p@30fps playback (w/ HEVC); Full HD H.264 capture Dual ISPs; up to 21MP Up to 1080p
