There are a couple of smartphones which are expected to use Qualcomm’s mid-range SoC, Snapdragon 675. The likes of Meizu Note 9 and Hisense U30 have been confirmed to come with this chip and it is widely reported that the Redmi Note 7 Pro will also sport this chip. Today, a new vivo device appeared on Geekbench with this processor. This smartphone also comes with 6GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie. However, it is the performance of this chip that caught our attention. On the single core test, this vivo phone scored 2382 and it also scored 6479 for the multi-core score section.
With this performance, it appears that the Snapdragon 675 clearly out-performs Snapdragon 710 SoC which is a mid-range chipset but it is considered as a quasi-flagship processor in some regions. Taking a comparison between this score and the Geekbench score of Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, one of the earliest smartphones to use the Snapdragon 710 chip, the former 22% better than the latter in the single score test and 10% better in the multi-core test.
The Snapdragon 675 is the mid-range mobile platform launched by Qualcomm in the second half of 2018. The platform is the first Qualcomm fourth-generation Kryo 460 architecture chip and the GPU is Adreno 612. Not only that, the Snapdragon 675 is equipped with Qualcomm’s third-generation multi-core Artificial Intelligence Engine (AI Engine), achieving up to 50% overall performance improvement in AI applications compared to the previous generation Snapdragon 670.
