Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429 mobile platforms

Qualcomm Technologies wants to put its foot on the pedal and accelerate the potential of its market growth by introducing three new Snapdragon Mobile platforms to enhance its High and Mid Tier efficiencies.

Qualcomm’s new 632, 439, and 429 Mobile Platforms are designed with similar vague mobile performance key-points-of-interest (KPI’s) such as providing better battery life, more efficient designs, and improved graphics performances. However, what might set the new platforms apart from their predecessors are the embedded AI capabilities being brought to the forefront.

“The introduction of Snapdragon 632, 439 and 429 builds off Qualcomm Technologies’ highest-selling mobile platforms and provides users with increased performance and power efficiency, superior graphics, AI capabilities and enhanced connectivity features,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We’re excited to offer these new platforms with enhanced features to our OEMs and consumers.”

Enabling AI capabilities for software running on more financially accessible devices is one of those “rising tides lift all boats” situations for the industry, that should help developers push the envelope on what and how AI can be practically applied.

Microsoft’s recent pivot to a cozier relationship with Qualcomm and its Windows 10, IoT and Azure platforms may be indicative of where the chip maker plans to take silicon in the future. With the recent release of Always Connected PC’s powered by Qualcomm chips, it’s clear Microsoft believes in the company to help provide a future of solutions for device users for years to come.
