Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 will support Quad-HD display and 6GB RAM
As years are passing by, smartphones with good quality are getting cheaper and cheaper smartphones are also going up in quality and processing power. This all started when Qualcomm introduced its budget series of Snapdragon chips, starting from the Snapdragon 200 to 400. However, now with the expansion of the Snapdragon 600 series which was once regarded as the flagship series has turned into the go-to chips when it comes to budget smartphones. And with the release of the next mid-range SoC from the American chip-maker, it is going to be much better.
And now the newest member of the Snapdragon 600 series is the upcoming SD 670, a successor to the highly powerful, Snapdragon 660. The SD 670 is currently under development and goes with the model number SDM670.
Following are the main highlights of the budget from Qualcomm:
- Support for Quad HD resolution
- RAM also gets a bump to 6GB LPDDR4X
- Fast memory support with eMMC 5.1 flash storage, up to 64GB
- And last but not the least is Camera up to 22 megapixels on the rear and 13 megapixels on the front
With this amazing specs support in a mid-range SoC, Android smartphones launching in 2018 are going to be exciting, and you will start seeing a very high price to performance ratio, once the Snapdragon 670 hits the market.
The processor will incorporate Qualcomm’s homegrown Kyro 360 cores and will have a hexa-core chip. Four low powered highly efficient cores along with two high-performance core to do all the heavy lifting, paired with a powerful GPU as well. The devices that might use this should cost anywhere from $300 to $550.
