Qualcomm recently launched Snapdragon 710 as an upgraded version of Snapdragon 660. We remind you that the Snapdragon 710 is the first SoC of the new Snapdragon 700 series. However it was not because of this launch that the 600 series is finished. To prove this, behold a mysterious Snapdragon 680 appeared on the Geekbench.
The image reveals the tests to a device that is using this processor. In the single-core it obtained 1940 points, that happened to 5153 in the multi-core. This device that integrates the Snapdragon 680 chipset also comes with 6GB of memory and the Android Oreo 8.1 operating system.
The above scores indicate that Snapdragon 680 is between Snapdragon 710 (18XX | 60XX), Snapdragon 660 (16XX | 5970) and Snapdragon 630 (8XX | 41XX). Geekbench also points out that the SD680 is a hex-core chipset that reaches 2.15 GHz. After the Snapdragon 650, the Snapdragon 680 seems to be the second hexapt chipset of the Snapdragon 600 line. The single-core of the new SoC is very similar to the SD835, which was used on the major devices of 2017. That’s why, apparently, the Snapdragon 680 is a powerful chipset developed for mid-range smartphones.
