Some people are billing this as a mid-range gaming SoC. Well, that would be great and all, except the Play Store consists of nothing but s****y idle tappers.

Gaming for Android is appalling to be honest.

Im just hype for no reason XD

Manufacturers and OEMs just play with customer's hand in hand and no one can do anything about it. Just pay premium price for flagships to get the latest and the greatest for few months to enjoy the best tech has to offer. Midrange and low end which is the best for performance and battery always gets last year or even older chipsets for us to buy. Just amazing value!

QC is least bothered with anything below flagship and all we get is, obsolete hardware at their successors price! Android's freedom misused at best.

Shanti Dope, 23 Oct 2018Cortex A76 means this is faster than SD710's 2 Cortex A75 HPCs??On paper may be but when in real will we see and compare is the question no manufacturer likes to answer!

I wonder if QC is even bothered whether there launches actually get available to the customers? What is the point of anything apart from SD8xx series if we hardly get devices with the SoC? No fun reading these as we never get OEMs to adopt them and release phones or restricted to brand's which quickly adopt and forget their devices.

Cortex A76 means this is faster than SD710's 2 Cortex A75 HPCs??

QC launching so many processors, and now brands like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo etc would be very happy now, as they can now practically make one design, and launch the same design in 2 models with 710, 3 with 675, 2 with 670, 4 with 660, then 5 more with 636, and call them as "we have an option for everyone".
IMO even QC should streamline it's lineup a bit more. 2 mid range processors are more than enough in a single year. This year, there should have been one 710 for upper mid range and 636 for lower. But they have increased the confusion with 632, 640, 670, 675.
Even the 660 adoption has picked up only in 2018, and also is fairly good even by today's standards.

wtf 11nm???
why not 10 or 12? lol

"11-nm"? How is it possible? And why? They already have 10-nm process. And where did you got this "11-nm" from? I don't see it on Qualcomm's website.

This will make mid-range chipset far more capable than Snapdragon 835 can do. I wonder if Google will ever make this chip on to Pixel budget version (not Android One).

While in mid range and low range phones there is cut throat competition with much less profit margins that makes manufacturers go with slightly older versions. Anyways, Snapdragon is still the most popular processor to be adopted in mid range and low end phones. This will also reach phones overtime.

Great. But the main issue is that the adoption of Qualcomm's mid-range chipsets are pretty slow.

For example, the SD 660 was announced in May 2017, but it's adoption came much later. On the other hand, flagship SD8xx chipsets are adopted pretty quickly in comparison.
