Last year, Qualcomm released a processor that was not meant to receive the name it finally had. The new SoC is the successor of Snapdragon 660 chipset. The new Snapdragon 670 SoC comes with a lot of improvements such as better camera and smart AI.
It is the first ever Snapdragon chipset apart from Snapdragon 800-series to feature the custom Kryo CPU. It has been one of the most powerful mid-range chipsets we have seen in 2017.
The new Snapdragon 660 was destined to higher levels, but a reduction, or increase, of its nanometers.The Snapdragon 670 is among us and is committed to a continued line compared to other models already presented this year.But this processor receives a processor for premium middle ranges in 10 nanometers. The Snapdragon 670-powered devices will be hitting the consumer markets in Q3 2018. Just like the recently announced Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform
Snapdragon 670 SoC features
The Snapdragon 670 chipset is built on 10nm LPP process technology. It sports octa-core Kryo 360 CPU featuring two high-performance cores clocked at 2.0GHz and six power efficient cores clocked at up to 1.7GHz. The Kryo 360 CPU is coupled with the Adreno 615 GPU for better graphics performance.
The new Snapdragon 670 is mentioned to offer up to 15% better CPU performance and up to 25% faster graphics performance.
Qualcomm states, “it has 3rd generation AI Engine which is said to bring up to 1.8x AI performance than available in the previous generation”.Coming the photography the 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra 250 ISP will be offering improvements in low light photography along with noise reduction, image stabilization, and active depth sensing.
The new chipset supports up to 25MP for single cameras and 16MP for dual cameras. The Snapdragon 670 Soc powered smartphone will be able to record Ultra HD (4K) Video with 30% less power consumption.
The Snapdragon 670-powered smartphones are sport up to Full HD+ displays. It also includes Hexagon 685 DSP and Spectra 250 ISP.
On the connectivity side, it features Snapdragon X12 Modem that provides up to 600 Mbps download speeds and up to 150 Mbps upload speeds.Depending on the stongest connectivity the X12 supports the automatic switching between LTE and Wireless connection.As same as Snapdragon 660 Soc, the Snapdragon 670 also supports the Quick Charge 4+ fast charging technology.Which I think is going to be necessary on the upcoming mid-range smartphones.
