Xiaomi is highly anticipated to unveil the Mi 7 flagship and Mi 6X aka Mi A2 smartphones in the coming months. In addition to these, it looks like Xiaomi is working on more smartphones well. According to the fresh information, the company could be the first one to use the upcoming Snapdragon 670 processor.
As per a recent tweet from Mishaal Rahman, the editor-in-chief at XDA Developers, Xiaomi is working on two smartphones with the Snapdragon 670 SoC. These smartphones are likely to be codenamed Comet and Sirius. Unfortunately, there is no further information about these upcoming Xiaomi smartphones for now.
However, speculations suggest that these upcoming Xiaomi smartphones to be launched with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor under their hood could be the Mi Note 4 and the Mi Max 3. The company is known for incorporating the latest chipsets on the Mi Max and Mi Note devices every year. So, it makes sense for these upcoming models using the Snapdragon 670 processor to be the successors to the Mi Note 3 and Mi Max 2 launched last year.
Qualcomm's Snapdragon 670 is the new mid-range chipset, which will be the sequel to the Snapdragon 660 chipset. Though this new chipset is yet to be announced, most of its specifications have been making rounds on the internet for quite some time giving us a fair idea of what the processor might bring to the table.
Based on the existing rumors and speculations, this new Qualcomm chipset is likely to be built on the 10 nm process just like the flagship Snapdragon 845 SoC and based on the big.LITTLE architecture. It is also believed to be an octa-core processor with 2 Kryo 360 Gold cores for a higher performance and the others are said to be Kryo 300 Silver cores meant to handle the day-to-day tasks.
When it comes to the features, the Snapdragon 670 SoC is said to arrive with features such as an advanced ISP, Adreno 615 GPU, dual-camera support, and a Snapdragon X20 modem. We can expect Qualcomm to unveil this chipset in the weeks to come so that we can get to know more details about it.
