The next best thing is a 600 series processor, the best of which up to now has been the Snapdragon 660.
Qualcomm just unveiled the new leader of its mid-tier, 600-series system on a chip - the Snapdragon 670. While that's a bit vague, we should expect a significant improvement in performance on that front as well.
This latest slice of silicon comes in an octa-core format, with two high-performance cores running up to 2GHz to take care of demanding apps and services, and six "efficiency" cores ramping up to 1.7GHz to look after the more day-to-day tasks.
According to the firm, the particular focus of the processors is to target AI-driven applications such as smart camera focus and settings. With the Hexagon 685 DSP, the SD 670 offers the same "always-on, always-sensing" capabilities seen in higher-end products.
But AI performance sounds like it has been given even more of a boost, with Qualcomm claiming that it's up to 1.8 times better.
Qualcomm has also thrown its AI Engine into the mix, so the Snapdragon 670 has the tech to support neural networks, the TensorFlow machine learning framework, Caffe and Caffe2 and other artificial intelligence development tools.
The X12 LTE modem has also been included which has been designed for improved speeds in congested areas and stronger signals in rural areas and places where coverage is poor. He had said that the next platform will be the first with "purpose-built chips".
The Snapdragon 670 Mobile Platform is now available to vendors and devices utilizing the chip are expected to land in the commercial market later this year.
