Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 675 for midrange smartphones




Qualcomm has announced a new soc for midrange smartphones. The Snapdragon 675 offers support for three cameras and is the direct successor of the Snapdragon 670. The company produces the new soc at 11nm, while the predecessor went 10nm.

According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 675 has a total of eight processor cores which are designated by the Kryo 460 microarchitecture. It is a relatively new architecture where it mainly revolves around the use of two fast Cortex A76 cores that run at 2.0 GHz. They are assisted by six more efficient A55 cores with a speed of 1.8 GHz. These six efficient cores are clocked slightly higher than with the Snapdragon 670 .

Compared to the Snapdragon 670, according to Qualcomm, the new soc should lead to apps that start 15 percent faster and up to 35 percent performance gains for internet browsing. Probably the Snapdragon 675 will also be slightly faster than the higher positioned Snapdragon 710 .

Qualcomm probably plays with the Snapdragon 675 on the development that high-end features are not only to be found on the most expensive flagship telephones. For example, the image signal processor has the new soc support for three cameras.

Furthermore, ‘gaming enhancements’ are built in. It is not clear what that means. There is also support for Quick Charge 4+ and improved ai support. The latter, for example, should lead to a faster face release.
