In a market dominated by the sheer volume of both MediaTek and Qualcomm, it is always nice to see a new face. Enter the JLQ JR510.
The JLQ JR510 is a new budget SoC from JLQ. I have written a whole post about them so do well to check it out.
The JLQ JR510 is the latest SoC in town and has already made it’s debut on the new Xiaomi Poco C40 phone.

This SoC does pack some decent juice on it, especially for a budget SoC. It should, depending on its optimisation, be able to handle regular tasks and apps with ease.
With that out of the way though, it is important to note that this is not a gaming SoC. So, while it should handle regular or casual games, triple A titles like eFootball, PUBG, CoDM etc. may not run on it.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom though, this SoC seems to be camera focused as evidenced with the addition of a capable ISP bundled with a vDSP.
It supports up to 25MP stand alone cameras and two 13MP cameras bundled together for photos and videos.
The manufacturer has suggested that this SoC is camera-centric and will deliver decent shots. It will also deliver good night shots as well, depending on the image sensor used.
Now, whilst it could do really well in the camera section, it’s videography is rather average. This however is due to the fact that we’re dealing with a budget SoC.
The JR510 can record (encode) videos of 1080p@30fs and playback (decode) videos of 4K@30fps.
Network connection also looks good as it can do uploads at speeds of 150Mbps (Cat. 13) and downloads at 300Mbps (Cat. 7) with its 4G LTE modem.
It does not seem to be all that battery friendly as it is built on an 11nm Samsung FinFet process. But with that being said, the Cortex A55s are “little cores” that tend to conserve rather than consume battery. So, a phone with this SoC on a 5,000mAh battery should go over 8hrs SoT with standard use.
This SoC, as earlier stated is a budget class SoC that is easily comparable to the likes of the Exynos 850. I have seen some big blogs compare the JLQ JR510 to the Helio G37 or the Snapdragon 450 which is not very correct.
It has more in common with Exynos 850 and Unisoc T610. It sits just under the Exynos 850 on my list of top 100 smartphone processors.
Summary and Conclusion
The JLQ JR510 is a decent budget SoC that brings some decent power and reliability for an affordable price. It will not play heavy games but it will get you through the day.
