Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Specs And Features

Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Specs And Features


At its 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong Qualcomm has announced the new Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform. Here’s what you need to know about the new chip’s specs and features.

As well as announcing that 5G smartphones are coming in 2019, Qualcomm has added a new processor to its 600 series mid-range. It’s designed to ‘provide improvements to device performance, enhanced gaming and display technology support’.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 release date 
The firm has said it expects the Snapdragon 636 to ship to customers November 2017 so we imagine we’ll see devices with the new chip early next year.

However, there’s a chance we could see some announced before the end of 2017. This is because the 14nm processor is pin compatible with Snapdragon 660 and 630 so OEMs already using older chips can make the switch quickly. 

Watch out for the Snapdragon 845 in December when Qualcomm holds its Snapdragon Summit.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 specs and features
First up is the CPU and the Snapdragon 636 uses a Kryo 260, the same as the Snapdragon 660 but at lower speeds.

That's slightly below the Kryo 280 of the Snapdragon 835 and Qualcomm says this CPU provides a 40 percent performance gain compared to the 630. The 64-bit chip has 8 cores clocked at up to 1.8GHz.

There’s also an Adreno 509 GPU which will offer up to 10 percent better gaming and browsing than the previous generation.

The Snapdragon 636 supports ultra-wide 18:9 Full HD+ displays so we could see bezel-free designs like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 in cheaper mid-range phones very soon.

Also on the display front is Assertive Display, a feature that optimises visibility in ‘all lighting conditions’. So it sounds similar to Apple’s True Tone technology.

Although 5G is the big subject in Hong Kong, the Snapdragon 636 has an X12 LTE modem for speeds of up to 600Mbps – up to twice the previous generation.

Meanwhile the Spectra 160 IPS supports up 24Mp capture with zero shutter lag and the Qualcomm Aqstic audio codec supports 192kHz/24bit audio playback.

For most of the past decade, TV producers have been desperate to find ‘the next Game of Thrones’, and now Amazon apparently reckons it’s found it: Lord of the Rings.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
