vasra, 14 Aug 2018R17 Pro will surely cost much more than many kf the below 300USD Honor Kirin 970 phones. So, ... moreFact is that Qualcomm is not selling his own smartphone with his own chip inside like wawai is doing...some people should think before talk sht over internet.
R17 Pro will surely cost much more than many kf the below 300USD Honor Kirin 970 phones.
So, a slower phone for a higher price.
Qualcomm has nothing in theie line up that would dethrone Kirin 970, except Sd845 and that is the flagship.
The fact is that Kirin 970 phones are being sold for mid range prices and Qualcom has nothing to compete against it.
That is a hole in their portfolio.
Walter C. Dornez, 14 Aug 2018Isn't the Kirin 970 a flagship chip?The point I think he is trying to make is that Huawei is using the same Kirin 970 chip in its mid rangers as well (Honor Play) and with the 980 out, it will be the flagship chip and this older one will be relegated to more mid rangers coming this year and the next. And from the looks of it, no Qualcomm SoC below the SD 835 comes even close to it.
So, Qualcomm's lineup isn't really f**ked as he/she is trying to put it, rather, OEM's going for their mid range chipsets have more competition now than ever before in the performance department from Huawei.
Whackcar, 13 Aug 2018It is one of the better notches for sure. The worst one is on the Google Pixel 3 XL.The best actually. I really want to avoid the notch until it passes, but if it doesn't this is the only one that isn't hideous
... and it still will be trampled on by even the slowest of Kirin 970 phone from the Honor/Huawei's line up.
Qualcomm really screwed up the mid-tier this year. They can't compete against Kirin 970, esp. in the gfx department. Their GPU is SD710 is 50% slower.
S E F I R O, 13 Aug 2018The title of the article is decisive. The title says SD 710 but on the article is says SD ... morePay attention! It says the R17 (non-pro) comes with SD 670. The Pro one will come with SD 710.

The title of the article is decisive.
The title says SD 710 but on the article is says SD 670. What is the real processor?
I think this notch is growing on me
