This is the in-depth comparison of Snapdragon 660, 636 and Helio P60 with the lastest renamed Snapdragon 710. Snapdragon 670 is renamed as Snapdragon 710 by Qualcomm.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 was rumored to launch the second quarter this year as a downgraded version of the Snapdragon 845, but now it has come to our knowledge that Qualcomm is re-branding the Snapdragon 670 as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710.

There are leaks surrounding in the internet that the Snapdragon 710 will be a Chinese market exclusive and will come with not one but two Xiaomi Devices “Codename- 1-Comet, 2-Sirius”.

About Qualcomm Snapdragon 710

Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 will use 8 (6+2) core design, it will be in a category of a mid-range chip and will be an alternative to Snapdragon 660.

Snapdragon 710 will be built on the 10nm process, putting it on the same hardware level as the much more efficient higher-end CPUs like the Snapdragon 835.

Snapdragon 710 will be based on 10nm fabrication process similar to the flagship Snapdragon 845 or Samsung’s Exynos 9810.

Around two months ago, it was spotted on Geekbench with an impressive single-core score of 1863 and multi-core score of 5256.

Here are the details of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710

  • It is said to be based on modified Cortex A55 and Cortex A75 cores.
  • Kryo 300 Silver features six high-efficiency cores and will be clocked at 1.7GHz
  • Kryo 300 Gold features two high-performance cores and will have a maximum clock frequency of 2.6GHz.
