Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 636 chipset, mid-range phones could be acquiring a noteworthy boost in the near future. The demonstration utilized new 5G Protocol R&D Toolset and the UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform. Fortunatley most of these components are supported across Qualcomm's range of Snapdragon mobile platforms, meaning that mid range and low end handsets should quickly be able to benefit from 600 MHz spectrum too.

If we move on to the graphical side, the Adreno 509 graphics are improved with 10 percent with this new Snapdragon 636 Chipset if we compare it with Snapdragon 660 Chipset. Similar to other middle-class Qualcomm processors, the new one too supports nearly every mobile networks on the planet. Also FHD + 18:9 aspect ratio displays and up to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, also supports Quick Charge 4.0 tech.

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.

The Kryo 260 CPU core is a customised version of ARM's Cortex CPUs. It is a 14nm chipset and is 40 percent faster than the Snapdragon 630. The Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem chipset delivered gigabit speeds and a data connection in the 28GHz mmWave radio frequency band, driving a new generation of cellular technology forward while accelerating the delivery of 5G NR enabled mobile devices to consumers. But Qualcomm is definitely "making significant strides" toward the eventual availability of 5G in mobile devices and networks, even previewing a blazing fast reference design for the "testing and optimization of 5G technology within the power and form-factor constraints of a smartphone". It also comes with support for 4L UHD video capture and full HD video capture. It supports MIMO with adaptive beam-forming and beam-tracking technology, has 800MHz bandwidth support, and is spec'd for maximum download speeds of 5Gbps once 5G networks are fully oprerational. The Snapdragon 636 is a successor of the Snapdragon 630.
