How can it be significantly cheaper to produce than the 800 series? Wouldn't they be better just producing less variants.
Well if all rumours are true the S670 will really be a premium midranger & closest to the flagship series ever. They cut performance core's to only two which in most use cases is enough & slightly lowered their clock to 2.7 GHz (vs 2.9 on S845). The most promising part is a GPU as what rumours say it will be a 3/4 of flagship A63x size compared to the up to 1/2 the size up to now. It will be the most up to date power/performance SaC ever made. The one thing that rumours don't show is RAM controller & let's just hope QC didn't crippled it much compared to the S845.
wow it's gonna be faster and more power efficient than the SD 820/821! and might have a better single core performance than the SD 835
Nobody even used the sd660. The price of it isn't worth it considering other manufacturer can give sd835 for lower price. This sd670 will be a flop too.
good more chipset, we want more power efficient chipset please!!!
660 popular? ROFL.
This thing was essentially rejected by almost every manufacturer, not because of performance but based on Qualcomm charging an arm and a leg.
JohnyJR, 10 Feb 2018I hope motorola puts it in their moto z3 play.We can hope but it's probably going to be the 630 considering that the 640 isn't released yet
The 660 is popular is it ?
your own phone finder manages to find precisely 15 devices that use 660,hardly "popular",specialy in comparison to 835 which your system finds 29 of.
As a "feature" stereo speakers are more "popular" at 21..
JohnyJR, 10 Feb 2018I hope motorola puts it in their moto z3 play.No way. Given how their use of SoC in their devices is usually one gen behind.
Great SoC that we'll probably never see in more than 1 or 2 phones. Phone manufacturers have learned that they can get away with sticking 8-core A53 chips in everything but flagships, and I expect this trend will continue with the A55. SAD!
Anonymous, 10 Feb 2018I hope xiaomi mi note 4 will use this chipset Most probably
Previous leaks in Dec 2017 SD670 suppose to have 4 Kryo 300 gold core (semi customized cortex A75 core) and 4 Kryo 300 silver core (semi customized cortex A55 core) and SD640 having 2 Kryo 300 gold core and 6 Kryo 300 silver core. Right now the latest leaks show SD670 taking SD640 specs, ii is mean SD640 being scrap
AnonD-594740, 10 Feb 2018Thats nice and all but, nobody will put it into a commercial device. It happend with the 650 ... more You never know. Qualcomm and the company they may keep may do just what you say they won't.
