Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 will be released next week
May 5, 2017 |
Qualcomm began sending official invitations to the presentation of the new Snapdragon 660 chip, which they will show next week. At the moment it became more or less known what to expect from it.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 is a new generation of processors that will be equipped with smartphones from the average price policy. The network previously had information about them and it turned out that the American company worked well on them.
According to the invitation, Snapdragon 660 should be officially presented next Tuesday. The company positions it as an alternative to its best chip 835. Version 660 should be made based on a 14-nanometer process, while the graphics processing will be handled by the Adreno 512 chip. In addition, the device will receive four cores and will be able to work with the LPDDR4X -1866 Mhz. According to AnTuTu analysis, the processor scored slightly more than 105,000 points, while its predecessor Snapdragon 820 only 85,000. This will allow smartphone and tablet manufacturers to use a new platform for their devices.
Some sources claim that the performance of this system will not be much different from Snapdragon 820, because Americans want to significantly reduce its cost. So users should expect the appearance of more better devices in the average price.
Smartphones with a new Qualcomm chip will have to appear in the second quarter of this year. There is a high probability that these will be devices from Nokia models 7 and 8, which haven’t been yet officially presented, as well as Meizu Pro 7, Mi Max 2 and Google Pixel 2.
Therefore, users do not have to do anything else than just wait for confirmation of all the rumors. It is possible that Qualcomm has a surprise in its arsenal, which so far nothing is known.
