Qualcomm is updating its Snapdragon 600 series of chips for mid-range smartphones. The new Snapdragon 670 is an octa-core processor that the company says offers up to a 15 percent boost in general performance and and 180 percent improvement in certain artificial intelligence tasks when compared to a Snapdragon 660 processor.
Here are some of the key specs for the new processor (or mobile platform, as Qualcomm calls its Snapdragon chips these days):
- Octa-core Kryo 360 CPU with 2 x 2 GHz high-performance CPU cores + 6 x 1.7 GHz efficiency cores
- Adreno 615 graphics
- Hexagon 685 DSP
- Spectra 250 ISP with support for up to 25MP single cameras, 16MP dual cameras, and 4K video capture and 30 fps
- Support for FHD+ displays
- 802.11ac WiFI with top speeds of 867 Mbps
- Bluetooth 5
- Snapdragon X12 LTE modem with top speeds of 600 Mbps down, 150 MBps
- Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ support
The Snapdragon 670 chip is already available, and Qualcomm says we should start to see devices powered by the processor later in 2018.
