Qualcomm just announced a new mid-range processor in the 600-series, and for everyone’s surprise, this is the Snapdragon 670. Why are we calling it a surprise? Well, it was previously reported that the Snapdragon 670 is the all-new Snapdragon 710 as the company decided to change the naming scheme. But, looks like the situation is completely different. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 is the new mid-range processor that is also the successor to Snapdragon 660, the chipset powering phones like the Mi A2, Nokia 7 Plus, etc.

The Snapdragon 670 is a huge improvement from the Snapdragon 660, and the specifications are pretty similar to that of the Snapdragon 710. It is built on the 10nm LPP process, and this is the same process that is used for the Snapdragon 710. Talking about the speed, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 comes with powerful Kryo 360 CPU. There are 2x Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2.0GHz while 6x Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.7GHz.

The configuration is the same as that of Snapdragon 710, and the only difference is in the clock speed of the high-performance cores. The 2x Cortex-A75 are clocked at 2.0GHz in case of the 670 whereas the clock speed is 2.2GHz in case of the 710.

The Snapdragon 670 has the Qualcomm Hexagon 685 DSP, which we see on the high-end 700 and 800-series processors. The company claims that the 3rd generation AI Engine inside the Snapdragon 670 delivers up to 1.8x AI performance than the previous generation.

Just like the Snapdragon 710, the Snapdragon 670 has the Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP, and it is the first time Qualcomm has included it with a 600-series processor. This means better camera performance. The chipset supports up to a 25MP single camera and dual 16MP cameras.

The Snapdragon 670 features X12 LTE Modem that promises up to 600 Mbps download speeds and 150 Mbps upload speeds. The GPU is Adreno 615, which seems just a bit slower in performance as compared to the Adreno 616 that comes with Snapdragon 710.

Qualcomm says that the Snapdragon 670 can deliver 25% better performance than the Snapdragon 660 which shows how close it is regarding the performance to the Snapdragon 710 since the 710 delivers 35% better performance than the 660.

We can expect to see some Snapdragon 670-powered smartphones later this year according to Qualcomm. Let’s see which smartphone manufacturer will be the first to launch a phone with this chipset (All eyes on Xiaomi again!).
