Xiaomi said to be working on ‘comet’ and ‘sirius’ smartphones with upcoming Snapdragon 670


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset which is the successor to the Snapdragon 660 has not yet been announced officially and we keep hearing about the chipset every now and then. It is reported that the the chipset will be manufactured on a 10nm process and feature Adreno 615 GPU. However, it is now believed that Xiaomi is working on smartphones with unannounced Snapdragon 670.

XDA Developers’ Mishaal Rahman claims that the company is currently working on the phones with Snapdragon 670 SoC and they come with code names ‘comet’ and ‘sirius’. One of these phones might be the Mi Note 4 and this makes sense given that the Mi Note 3 is powered by the Snapdragon 660. As for the second phone, it might the Mi Max 2 successor; Mi Max 3.

However, the launch of these phones might be months away, so there’s still time to find out more about the Xiaomi ‘comet and sirius’ smartphones.

Furthermore, Snapdragon 670’s little cluster comes with 6 cores clocked at 1.7GHz per core and the big cluster has 2 cores clocked at 2.6GHz per core. It is said to support  UFS 2.1 and eMMC 5.1, Qualcomm Snapdragon X2x modem and up to WQHD (2560×1440 pixels) display. The Snapdragon 660 was introduced in May last year, so we can expect Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 640 next month.
