Qualcomm has silently unveiled three new SoCs for the budget and mid-range segments, in the forms of Snapdragon 429, Snapdragon 439, and Snapdragon 632.

Qualcomm has already unveiled its new Snapdragon 700-series this year for the sub-flagship market. Of course, SoCs in that series will be found on devices with correspondingly high price tags, so the company has silently introduced three new chipsets in its budget and mid-range Snapdragon 400 and 600 lines.

The first of these is the Snapdragon 429. It’s a direct successor to the Snapdragon 425 and is equipped with an Adreno 504. There’s support for a single 16 MP sensor or an 8 MP + 8 MP dual-camera setup. Maximum possible resolution is HD+.

The Snapdragon 439 succeeds the Snapdragon 435 and has support for a FHD+ display. It’s equipped with an Adreno 505 and offers support for a single 21 MP camera or an 8 MP + 8 MP dual-camera combo.

The last is the Snapdragon 632. It succeeds the Snapdragon 630 and is equipped with Qualcomm’s custom Kryo 250 cores, an Adreno 506 GPU, and the X9 LTE modem. There’s support for 4K video capture, and a single 24 MP camera or a 13 MP + 13 MP duo. 

Quite surprisingly, this isn't the first time we've received word of a Snapdragon 632. About eight months ago, a Xiaomi device was sighted with the processor. We were skeptical at the time, but there’s a chance such a device is actually in the works, especially considering Xiaomi’s close relationship with Qualcomm.

All three SoCs are expected to find their way into consumer hands over the second half of the year.
