The segment of medium-sized smartphones is becoming more and more important for each smartphone manufacturer. This is known to Qualcomm, who is trying to appropriate this "piece of floor" for himself through the new SoC – Snapdragon 675.
Snapdragon 675 is – as Konrad wrote – a processor that should guarantee great performance when it comes to the mid-range smartphones segment. This 8-core SoC based on two Kryo 460 and six Cortex A55 cores is to guarantee very high performance – about 20% higher than Snapdragon 670. The expectations are big and although Qualcomm officially presented its new layout, it was not mentioned when we could wait the premiere of the first device equipped with this system.
The first smartphone with Snapdragon 675 already in the Geekbench database
It is true that many people have speculated that this could happen in the first quarter of 2019, and that Xiaomi will offer its equipment first (and who would be different), but today we are closer to saying that such a smartphone can hit the market much faster than before it seemed. In the Geekbench benchmark database , the first results of testing equipment equipped with the mentioned Snapdragon 675 appeared.We do not know yet which one belongs to the mysterious device, but the fact that it appears in the database of this popular program he can testify that his premiere will be soon. We know relatively little about the phone itself – it is based on the Android 9 Pie system, and on its board we will find 4 GB of RAM. So a very efficient machine is being prepared, which – according to the announcements of Qualcomm representatives – is supposed to be very good especially in games. The latter information is quite surprising, given the fact that in Snapdragon 675 we find the Adreno 612 graphic layout, which is slightly less efficient than that used in the 670 and 710 Adreno 616 models . Nevertheless, the company's representatives say that SoC has been optimized in terms of gaming and can handle any modern title. Well – we'll wait, see. Anyway, the smartphone with Snapdragon 675 promises to be very interesting and let's hope that we will not have to wait too long for it. source
