A report earlier this week confirmed that Qualcomm will be unveiling the new Snapdragon 660 chipset in an event on May 9 in Beijing, China. Now, it has been reported that the company will also launch Snapdragon 630 and Snapdragon 635 alongside the Snapdragon 660.
The information from @mmddj_china came in response to a tweet by well-known tipster Roland Quandt, who tweeted, “I think you’ll like what Qualcomm wants to show you on May 8/9, if you liked what they did with the SD65x and SD625.”
It was reported earlier in February that the Snapdragon 630 and 635 chipsets are enhanced versions of Snapdragon 625. Both are rumored to feature octa-core processors and support LPDDR3 RAM, Cat. 7 LTE modem, Adreno 506 GPU or above, and processing speed of around 2.0-2.2 GHz. The chips are also expected to be launched with more efficient power management and heat reduction capabilities.
The Snapdragon 630 and 635 are expected to directly supplant the 14 nm Snapdragon 625 and 626, respectively. The source claims that Qualcomm will continue to utilize octa-core Cortex-A53 chipsets with above minor improvements.
