Owing to the rising demand of mid-range smartphones, the need for newer midrange chipsets has also gained pace. Qualcomm revealed yet another mid-range SoC last month, Snapdragon 675. Surprisingly, a phone has already been spotted with the latest mid-range chipset on the Geekbench website.
Though the device has not been identified but what we do know from the benchmark scores is that the latest chipset can perform better than its earlier released sibling Snapdragon 710.
The score sheet shows off what the newer SoC is capable of. Other than the benchmark score, the only information that can be gathered is the Android version and RAM of the phone, which is Android 9.0 Pie and 4GB respectively.
Even with similarities to the Snapdragon 710 and 670, the new chip differs a lot from both its siblings. It is built on the 11nm process instead of 10nm and features the Qualcomm’s 4th generation Kryo core design.
The Snapdragon 675 uses a less powerful GPU Adreno 612 but makes up for it with its adoption of ARM’s new Cortex-A76 cores as compared to the Cortex-A75 in the Snapdragon 710. According to Qualcomm, the new chipset has also been optimized for gaming.
So far, none of the OEMs have stepped forward to claim the phone, we do hope that some company soon takes the responsibility. In any case, one thing is evident that we are soon going to have the first phone with Snapdragon 675 in the market.
