Trio of Mid-Ranged Snapdragon Chips Set for Release this Year

It doesn’t seem that their recent troubles in China, South Korea, and — more recently — in the United States will deter SoC manufacturer Qualcomm from making bank. Reports have come in that they will be releasing three new mid-ranged chipsets to power future devices, these SoC’s are the: Snapdragon 630, Snapdragon 635, and the Snapdragon 660.

From their naming convention alone, we know that these will be an improvement over the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 — which was ASUS’ chipset of choice for last year’s Zenfone 3 — but will follow along in terms of its structure and will still be an octa-core SoC. The Snapdragon 660, however, will reportedly use Samsung’s 14nm process and we can expect it to be released towards the 4th quarter of 2017 with Xiaomi, Vivo, and OPPO already rumored to be champing at the bit to use it.
