Qualcomm will soon launch the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 for the next generation of affordable Android phones. Leaks say it’s based on a 4nm process and supports 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6E, a 120Hz display, LPDDR5 RAM, and up to 108MP photo capture.

The upcoming SoC is the latest from Qualcomm, which has adopted a new naming convention for its chip and has been transitioning to the 4nm process since it released the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

The leak came from Evan Blass (@evleaks) who has shared the chip’s spec sheet on Twitter.

The upcoming Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 series will use Qualcomm’s Kyro CPU with a clock speed of up to 2.2GHz on 64-bit architecture. It supports USB-C 3.1 and up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM up to 2750MHz, which is previously found only on high-end phones.

Additionally, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 can push up to an FHD resolution display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. It also supports Qualcomm’s Spectra Image Signal Processor, which supports a 13MP triple camera setup, a 25MP + 16MP dual camera setup, or a single 48MP camera.

At this point, there’s no information yet on when we’ll see it on cheap Android phones, but it could launch at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit, which is scheduled sometime in November 2022.
