SNAPDRAGON 660:

Qualcomm is all set to release their new mid-range chipset SNAPDRAGON 660 on 9th may and is sending press invites. According to the reports, the chipset is going to be close to their flagship 835. The chipset is going to have 2 kyro quad core of Cortex A-73  clocked at 2.3 GHz and quad cores clocked at 1.9 GHz. These will be built on 14 nm. Though this looks like a promising upgrade to their Snapdragon 652 chipset which was very very successful and ruled the midrange segment, This is definitely not going to give the same performance as the Snapdragon 835.

Here is a press invite it is in Chinese though!

If the rumors are true then this chip might show up on some of the upcoming smartphones like the Xiaomi mi MAX and even the NOKIA 7 and NOKIA 8.So fingers crossed till next week. The chipset looks really promising and it might be a game changer in the midrange segment.

Recent leaks suggest(from ROLAND QUANDT on twitter) that along with the successor to the Snapdragon 652 there might be two more chipsets 635 and 630 although there is not much information on these. But there is an absolute probability that these are for budget range devices or lower end devices.
