Snapdragon 450 to hit the market soon, a 14nm octa-core chipset

Qualcomm is planning to release a new mobile platform for the entry-level category. According to leakster @Rquandt, the new SoC will be called the Snapdragon 450 and will appear in benchmarks as the SDM414 N50. This chip will offer low-power consumption like the Snapdragon 625 and 626 mobile platforms due to its configuration.

Like the SDM435, the Snapdragon 450 is an octa-core chip but built on the 14nm node process, not 28nm. It will have 8 ARM Cortex-A53 cores and have its GPU clocked at 600MHz. Other details about the SoC such as the LTE version, camera support, and spectral bands are still unknown but we should expect it will have Quick Charge 3.0. Launch dates are still unknown and maybe it will hit the market in Q4 2017 or Q1 2018.
