MediaTek’s strong hold on the Chinese market is slowly becoming more and more loose as the days go by. Qualcomm’s made some pretty strong efforts to help with that these past few years, especially with their fantastic set of mid-range SoCs. It doesn’t exactly help that MediaTek themselves haven’t been on top of their game with the P23 being pretty meh.
Now Qualcomm’s current mid-range lineup is pretty good, but the new Snapdragon 670 might just blow everything out of the water. The unannounced SoC made its appearance on Geekbench today, revealing its specs as well as a pretty incredible score.
The Snapdragon 670 got itself 1,863 as its single core score and 5,256 in the multi-core test. These scores are pretty much unheard of when it comes to mid-range devices. We also now know that it’s an eight core processor with a clockspeed of 1.7GHz.
Qualcomm’s got a pretty beastly SoC here, and it could be a huge hit if priced right. We’re eager to learn more about it, like when it’ll launch and what the pricing of Snapdragon 670 devices will be like. MediaTek will also need to step up their game soon if they want a chance to fight back.
