Qualcomm has taken the wraps off two new Snapdragon 600-tier mobile platforms – the Snapdragon 660 (first ever 600-series processor to use a Kyro CPU) and Snapdragon 630. Both mid-range options are the direct successors to the Snapdragon 653 and 626/625 respectively, and are engineered to support better connections, capture true-to-life photos and deliver improved battery life, performance, and security.
For the first time in the Snapdragon 600-tier platform, features such as Qualcomm Spectra camera ISP, Qualcomm Kryo CPU, and Hexagon Vector extensions (HVX) have been introduced from the higher 800-tier platform. Also, the Quick Charge 4.0 which launched with the Snapdragon 835 is also available on the duo.
