Qualcomm develops new mid-range mobile processors

Qualcomm is working on three new chipsets for mid-range mobile phones, according to Android Headlines. These processors, identified by model numbers SM4635, SM6650 and SM7635, are expected to be part of the Snapdragon 4, 6 and 7 series, respectively, based on Qualcomm’s conventions.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 14 Pro will be the first smartphone with SM7635 chipset

The codename of the SM4635 is “pitti”, while the SM6650 and SM7635 share the common codename “volcano”. Earlier information from Roland Quandt in February suggests that SM4635 is a Snapdragon 4 Gen 3. At the time, he mentioned the Kalpeni project, which is testing a memory configuration with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 256GB UFS 3.1 drive for this chip. For comparison, the previous generations of Snapdragon 4 series processors, 4 Gen 1 and 4 Gen 2, used the model numbers SM4375 and SM4450, respectively.

As for the “volcanic” processors, SM6650 and SM7635, rumors suggest that Qualcomm may be following a strategy similar to that of the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 (SM6450) and 7s Gen 2 (SM7435). These two processors, codenamed “parrot,” had similar specifications. Android Headlines predicts that the SM7635 may not outperform the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3, but it will still offer significant improvements, strengthening Qualcomm’s position in the mid-range SoC market. Xiaomi Redmi Note 14 Pro is rumored to be one of the first devices to feature this processor. Although specific details about these processors remain unknown, we can expect more information to be released in the near future.
