The new unit is also manufactured using 10 nm process technology, it consists of eight cores Kryo 360, Adreno 616 graphics core, Qualcomm Spectra 250 image processor and Hexagon 685 DSP. The latter element is used to process artificial intelligence tasks so as not to overload the processor cores. The mobile platform Snapdragon 712 is also equipped with a Snapdragon X15 LTE modem with support for 3CA, 4 × 4 MIMO and LAA, which provides data download at speeds up to 800 Mbps and return up to 150 Mbps.
