Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC to Be Built on 10nm Process, Rumoured to Deliver Download Speeds of 1 Gbps

Qualcomm will launch the upper mid-range Snapdragon 670 SoC very soon. Rumours say that the chipset will see the light at the MWC 2018 event itself. But before that, complete specifications of the chipset surfaced online suggesting it as the powerful Snapdragon mid-range chipset until now. The report highlights that Snapdragon 670 SoC will be built on 10nm manufacturing process and will have an octa-core CPU. It will arrive with Snapdragon X2X modem that is expected to deliver download speeds of up to 1 Gbps.


The Snapdragon 660 SoC is already the most powerful mid-range chipset available in the market, and the Snapdragon 670 SoC will exceed the expectation. To be noted, it will be first Snapdragon chipset to be built on the 10nm manufacturing process. This entire information is revealed by popular tipster Roland Quandt on Twitter.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC Rumoured Specifications
Talking about the specifications of the upcoming Snapdragon 670 SoC, it won’t be based on the classic big.LITTLE architecture as Qualcomm is looking to add a hexa-core processor and a dual-core processor.

The hexa-core processor will be of low-end while the dual-core processor will be of high-end. The former will have Kryo 300 Silver cores with a maximum clock speed of 2.6GHz, and the latter will have Kryo 300 Gold cores. That said, the Kryo 300 Silver is a slightly modified version of Cortex A55, whereas the Kryo 300 Gold is a different version of Cortex A75. Also, the high-end dual-core chip will have a maximum clock speed of 1.7GHz.

These specifications are clear enough that the Snapdragon 670 SoC will deliver incredible performance in-line with Snapdragon 800 flagship chipsets.

Furthermore, each core will have 32KB L1 cache; each cluster will have 128KB L2 cache, and the entire chipset will have 1MB of L3 cache. Graphics in this chipset will be taken care by the Adreno 615 GPU whose maximum clock speed is said to reach 700 MHz.

The same report suggests that the chipset will support dual camera setup of a 13MP+23MP configuration. The upcoming SoC might support WQHD resolution. However, the tipster was not sure of this info though.

Apart from these, network configuration includes the Snapdragon X2X LTE modem which is said to offer up to 1 Gbps of download speeds. It will even have support for UFS 2.1 storage and eMMC 5.1.

For now, we’re believing that Qualcomm will unveil the Snapdragon 670 SoC at the MWC 2018 event later this month. The availability of the chipset to handset manufacturers is unknown as well. Already, there are a few Snapdragon 660 SoC smartphones in the world, and there’s isn’t a one available in India, sadly.

Is it 5G modem?

February 9, 2018 2:32 pm 2:32 PM

Nope. 5G will offer 10 Gbps speed so you can expect 1-2 Gbps speed in real time conditions. This chip can’t handle that.

5g frequency standards haven’t been finalized yet, so no its still 4g. Expect 5g in 2020.

Snapdragon 670 sounds ideal for mid-range yet powerful devices, so one can expect a Moto X5 (nah .. it seems this one will come with a 636) or a Moto X6 with this chip. Nice!!

February 9, 2018 12:09 pm 12:09 PM

Create Lenovo P3 with this chipset and make it stock android and price it around 20000 and 25000!!!!!For two variants!!!!! It will create good reputation for Lenovo!!!!!

Snapdragon 670 in a phone will cost over 30k. Snapdragon processors aren’t cheap. They’re crying to make a snapdragon 660 phone under 25k.

February 10, 2018 12:56 am 12:56 AM

Xiaomi should not do mistake of launching Redmi 5 Plus with Snapdragon 625 at all!!!!! If it launches its game over for Xiaomi in India!!!!!!

February 10, 2018 12:54 am 12:54 AM

Xiaomi should launch Redmi 5 with Snapdragon 450 chipset with 3GB+32GB for 9000 and with 4GB+64GB for 12000!!!!!

February 10, 2018 12:53 am 12:53 AM

Yes I know, but Snapdragon 660 performs more or less same as that of the Snapdragon 821!!!!!So device with Snapdragon 660 should be placed at 20000-22000 at the most in Indian market!!!!! Xiaomi and Lenovo can do that!!!!! Moto and Nokia can use Snapdragon 630 in Nokia 6)2018 and Nokia 7 and launch the devices in same price tag!!!!! People will have choices and great options!!!!! I hope Redmi Note 5 with Snapdragon 636/632 won’t cost more than 15000-16000 for 4GB+64GB variant!!!!! There should not be 2GB+32GB variant in any of the Xiaomi device in 2018!!!!!

Was thinking the same, but they might use it next year, as this year most smartphones will have SD630, 636, 660

February 10, 2018 12:58 am 12:58 AM

I hope Nokia launches one phone with 630 and another phone with 660/670 with a gap of six months with Android 8.0 out of the box with a price tag of 18000 and 25000 respectively !!!!one device with Snapdragon 450 with a price tag of 12000-15000!!!!! All variants from Nokia should be 4GB+64GB variant!!!!!

February 10, 2018 12:43 am 12:43 AM

Snapdragon 660 is the best chip available right now!!!!! If used under 22000,it will give best profits too company!!!!! If Xiaomi Launches this chipset either in Xiaomi Mi Max 3/Mi Note 3,and launch it in India, then Samsung Galaxy A(2018) will not have any buyers!!!!!! Xiaomi should think of these chipset!!!!!!

February 10, 2018 12:41 am 12:41 AM

I doubt there will be phone with Snapdragon 660 in India!!!!! There will be only phone with Snapdragon 636,Redmi Note 5!!!!!Everything will be clear on Feb 14!!!!!I won’t mind Lenovo delaying their launches of K series and P series until Diwali!!!!!! I hope K series comes with Snapdragon 625 atleast!!!!! And I hope Snapdragon 670/660 is utilized in Lenovo P3!!!!!
