Qualcomm earlier this year announced the 700 series of SoC primarily aimed at its premium midrange smartphones. And while the SD710 which is the first of the series is yet to find its way to a number of phones, it now appears the American chipmaker is set to once again refresh the SD 600 series as an unannounced Snapdragon 680 SoC has been found flex its muscles on Geekbench.
Though the listing doesn’t reveal much about the alleged Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, it does reveal how well it will fare against the SD 660 and even other SoCs from rival chipmakers. While the prototype device used for the testing didn’t reveal, the Geekbench listing reveals that the SD 680 with the aid of 6GB of RAM returned impressive scores on both the single and multi-core test, polling a total of 1940 and 5153 points respectively.
While the Snapdragon 680 incorporates Six Cores CPU with a clock speed of 2.15 GHz, the performance as indicated by the multi-core score fell short of the recently unveiled SD 710 which debuted with the Xiaomi mi 8 SE, but finds itself in between the Snapdragon 710 and the Snapdragon 660 Octa-core SoCs.
What major improvements, when and on what device the Snapdragon 680 will make its first appearance still remains to be known, we, however, expect more details to surface in the following days.
