Until the appearance of a series of Snapdragon 700 processors, many expected the release of Snapdragon 670. However, as reported, Qualcomm acted differently and released instead of 670 processor with the index 710. It seems that these assumptions turned out to be false, as Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 670 processor.
In terms of its characteristics, Snapdragon 670 is closer to Snapdragon 710, which explains the messages about renaming 670 to 710. Like Snapdragon 710, Snapdragon 670 is an 10-nm processor, the cores are the same - eight Kryo 360, but run at the maximum frequency of 2,0 GHz.
In Snapdragon 670, Adreno 615 is responsible for the graphics, which should be less powerful than the Adrono 616 graphics processor SD710. It also supports FHD + resolution, unlike 710, which supports the maximum resolution of QHD +. SD 670 supports the main camera up to 25 MP and basic dual to 16 MP.
Qualcomm also replaced the X15 LTE modem from SD710 with a slower X12 LTE modem. Thus, the maximum upload speed is 600 Mbit / s, and the maximum transfer speed is 150 Mbit / s. Snapdragon 670 also supports Dual SIM Dual VoLTE (DSDV), Quick Charge 4 + and is equipped with AI (artificial intelligence) support.
As a result, Snapdragon 670 is a slightly less powerful Snapdragon 710. It has a lower processor clock speed, a slightly less powerful GPU and a slower modem.
It is expected that the first smartphones on Snapdragon 670 will be OPPO R 17
