Qualcomm is known mainly thanks to its Snapdragon 8xx series, but firm doesn't forget about units dedicated for mid-range smartphones. We expected that in this year Qualcomm will release Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor which was reported to be downgraded version of Snapdragon 845, and in fact this unit will appear on market, but how it turns out processor will have another name. Qualcomm re-branded their new processor, and it will be named Qualcomm Snapdragon 710.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 will be octa-core processor with two Cortex-A75 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores. As we can read on the Internet probably Xiaomi will be the first company which will use this unit in their devices, which are for this moment shrouded in mystery. We know that they have codenames "Comet" and "Sirius", and both will be very similar – the main difference will be Portrait Mode in camera which will be added to phone which is known as Sirius model.
