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.

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.

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!!
