The chipset was built with the older Spectra 250 ISP with triple camera setup to offer improved imaging. It is company's first SoC fabricated on 11nm node, and has been designed keeping camera, gaming and AI in mind.

Qualcomm has also revealed that the two new camera from GoPro - the HERO7 Silver and HERO7 White, are using the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence 200 and Vision Intelligence 100 Platforms respectively. So, you won't see many upgrades over Snapdragon 670 on papers.

Qualcomm has announced its new mid-range chipset Snapdragon 675 at its annual 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong.

American company Quallcom told about the characteristics of the 675 Snapdragon processor with faster cores and support for three cameras.

Asides from the cores and clock speed, the Snapdragon 675 will be a processor that will help the manufacturers to bring high-end features to mid-range smartphones. Xiaomi Global VP and Managing Director Xiaomi India, Manu Kumar Jain made the announcement about a Snapdragon 675-powered smartphone to be launched soon, but failed to mention the exact timeline of the release.

Qualcomm waited over a year to deliver a successor to the Snapdragon 660, a well-received mid-range chipset launched in 2017 that ended up gracing a lengthy list of devices including the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), Asus ZenFone 4, and Nokia 7 Plus. HD slo-motion recording and playback is offered at 480fps. The Snapdragon 675 offers 15 percent improvement in app launches and 35 percent improvement in web browsing. Through heterogenous computing, the Hexagon DSP, Adreno GPU, and Kryo CPU- are engineered to work cooperatively to run AI applications on-device faster and more efficiently. Matrix support is limited to 25 megapixels on a single sensor and 16 megapixels on a dual camera. It comes with support for features such as telephoto, wide angle, and super-wide image capture, as well as enhanced portrait mode (Bokeh), 3D face unlock and "epic" selfies. It also includes the Snapdragon X12 modem that has up to 600mbps peak download speeds. IN audio, Qualcomm has enriched it with Aqstic audio and aptX audio.

All this should bring features now limited to smartphones costing £500 or more to cheaper devices, with the first Snapdragon 675-toting devices appearing in the first quarter of 2019.
