FP5 cpu soc is not a snapdragon

am i reading the specs right? whats the main difference to select this kind of product line over snapdragon or has qualcom shifted their evolution of snapdragons towards these kinds of products in any way?

any details? thanks.

The difference is longer software support by Qualcomm, since this is more of an industry/IoT SoC. It’s performance should be comparable to a 7th Gen Snapdragon.


Somebody posted the CPU specs in another topic: [FP5][AndroidAuthority]First look at the Fairphone 5 - #160 by HolosericaCaligo

And some of the fresh articles about the FP5 say it’s comparable to the 778 Snapdragon.



This SoC is mire like a Snapdragon 782G but with a higher thermal design power, a better GPU, and a powerfull AI compute unit.
It’s a SoC designed and selled for Automobil and for factory tablet.

On the paper, he is more powerfull than a 782G but I think for gaming (which is generally CPU limited) and due to thermal limitations (a smartphone, a plastic conception), he will perform as the 782G.

Does Fairphone will developp apps who exploit the AI compute unit of this chip ?


Off topic/on-topic?: does this CPU still have good power sleep levels and power optimizations? Since industry/IoT and long-term support sounds very nice, but we are talking about a device that is using a battery. It’s a phone not a IoT.

I am not too familiar with the chip’s technical specifications yet, but many IoT devices have even more rigid power consumption requirements than Phones due to their always-on-standby nature, so I wouldn’t take the mere fact that it’s an IoT chip as an indicator for higher power consumption.


I hope you are right. The thing is this cpu is meant for IoT and industrial usage. Which are often connected to the grid and not powered by a lithium ion battery.

This officially includes “ruggedized handhelds and tablets”.

What if most of this is marketing?
Reviews compare it to the Snapdragons 778G and 782G. It might be a variant of the same SoC line, just marketed and supported differently.
I remember AMD had processors with a letter “B” extension once (for "B"usiness purposes) … same processors as those without the B, but with different support conditions. (Reference)
