LG superfan, 28 Feb 2018That makes only three phonesActually 4 devices use SD660, Oppo R11 series, Xiaomi Mi Note 3, Vivo X20 series and Nokia 7 Plus. This SD660 is rumored to be more expensive compare to another SD600 series chipset that make it so unpopular to phone manufacturers. I think Qualcomm would renamed SD660 to includes its to SD700 series.
Akinaro, 28 Feb 2018I would call it "When you are to stuqid to just spend that 400-500 bucks on last year flaghip"... moreAgree, and AI just marketing and I dont use it even onboard my phone, this step due decreasing in mobile perchase, so AI is the vest bet to increase people spending
Akorn Farmer, 28 Feb 2018So SD8XX AP's are premium AP for flagship phone, SD6XX are called as mid-range, SD4XX is budg... moreI would call it "When you are to stuqid to just spend that 400-500 bucks on last year flaghip"
Because seriously looking how prices drop with every month, its always better to put that 50-100$ more on last year flaghip knowing that you will get all candy features and support, Instead of buying medicore phone that just look good but inside it have features and power of low end phone that will start slowing down after just installing few apps.
I still have Xperia Z3 and Galaxy S4 in my closed and they still work better than all those "premium midrange" devices.
Tiger Master, 28 Feb 2018Now Nokia 7 Plus been release officially with SD660.That makes only three phones
Gimmicks are sulking smartphone world. Does anyone even uses or want to use AI to do basic stuff, pathetic
So SD8XX AP's are premium AP for flagship phone, SD6XX are called as mid-range, SD4XX is budget AP. Then How is SD7XX line called ? upper-middle? or lower premium? There should be some proper name for this class of product position. Like "Business Class" in Airline seat. or "Choice" grade in beef meat.
Thesis86, 27 Feb 2018Will this be coming out this year? If not...mehNext year as all new phones with new socs...
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2018Its a marketing gimmick to justify price tag.
SD 800 series $1000 flagships
SD 700 series $8... moreYes... It is a good plan!
Even better would be usinng 6xx series with 8 core 5x socs and 7xx series with 8 cores where x cores would be 7x based. So old 660 and similar would go to 700 series and 625-640 would stay in 600 series...
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2018Please... Low grade performance. What?
Tiger Master, 27 Feb 2018SD670 not yet officially launch by Qualcomm so how come to see it in the phone. Till today SD6... moreWell we havent seen 660 in many phones either the only phone I remember are Vivo X20 plus and Xiaomi Mi Note3
It appears to be more of a successor to 650 series. It does make sense. Performance of 650 and above is much better than 620 counterparts. They are just shy of being flagships anyways
Its a marketing gimmick to justify price tag.
SD 800 series $1000 flagships
SD 700 series $800 lite version of flagship
SD 600 - 650 lower midrange
SD 650 - 700 upper midrange
SD 400 series entry level
Just when smartphone was reaching a saturation point, industry created AI hype and saw an opportunity to make more money.
Yay, Another Chipset series for developers to learn. :D
Anyhow. Those who mentioned Snapdragon 1000 series. I found it more plausible that it'll come now.
