Aside from the flagship Snapdragon 8150, Qualcomm is also working on two mid-range SoCs — the Snapdragon 6150 and Snapdragon 7150. All that is known so far is that these are octa-core SoCs and are based on the updated 'Kryo' cores. Further details of the chips and probable launch dates are still elusive.

We know that the next generation of Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon SoCs are already under testing by various OEMs and that it is likely to be called the Snapdragon 855 or 8150 as per rumors. Word on the street is that Qualcomm is also hard at work on developing new mid-range SoCs — the Snapdragon 6150 (SM6150) and the Snapdragon 7150 (SM7150). References to these new SoCs were also found on GitHub.

Not much is known about the SM6150 and the SM7150 apart from the fact that these are octa-core CPUs featuring new 'Kyro' cores. Details about the clocks, GPU, and other components are not yet available. However, we do have an idea of the target devices for each of these chips. Both the SM6150 and the SM7150 are expected to be fabricated on the 11nm LPP process similar to the recently announced Snapdragon 675 SoC.

The SM6150 is likely intended for cheaper mid-range devices. The development board used by Qualcomm for the SM6150 supports a FHD+ (2160 x 1080) resolution on at least a 5.99-inch display. The SM6150 is expected to support a 12 MP + 13 MP dual camera setup at the rear and a 20 MP front camera. 

The SM7150, on the other hand, is being targeted at more premium mid-range offerings. The test platform for this SoC reportedly sports an 18:9 QHD+ (2880 x 1440) resolution. So far, almost all mid-range models in 2018 have had FHD+ screens so the SM7150 might provide the right impetus for OEMs to bundle higher resolution screens in the mid-range segment. Like the SM6150, the SM7150 also supports a dual 12 MP + 13 MP camera setup at the rear along with a 20 MP front camera. 

It is still not clear as to when these SoCs will see the light of the day but all indications point to wide availability next year. We will keep you posted as we get to hear more information so watch this space.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
