The Snapdragon 710 (SDM710) will be Qualcomm's first SoC in its new Snapdragon 700-series. The chipset will feature two A75 cores and six efficient A55 cores. It will also see likely see its first use on two Xiaomi devices that will be released later in the year.

Last week, a tweet by Roland Quandt claimed that the first SoC in Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 700-series, the Snapdragon 710, was on its way. Details of the SoC have finally surfaced, throwing light on what we should expect from Qualcomm's new sub-premium SoC.

The Snapdragon 710, as expected, will be the same SoC as the Snapdragon 670 that was touted towards the end of 2017. Qualcomm has apparently decided to create another segment in the SoC market, one that fits between the mid-range Snapdragon 600-series and the flagship Snapdragon 800-series.

Initial leaks of the Snapdragon 670 claimed it would feature four Cortex-A75 cores and four Cortex-A55 core, in a big.LITTLE setup. That is apparently false. A firmware teardown has revealed that the SoC actually opts for two performance Cortex-A75 cores, and six efficient Cortex-A55 cores instead. It's a bit hard to extrapolate what performance will be like, at least not without knowing the clock speeds of those cores. 

Graphical power on the SDM710 should be adequate, as it features an Adreno 515 GPU. That SoC will likely slot in between the Adreno 510 on the Snapdragon 652, and the Adreno 530 on the Snapdragon 820.

The firmware that was dissected belonged to a Xiaomi device. The source confirms that Xiaomi will release two devices with the Snapdragon 710 this year, with both featuring OLED panels. We expect one of those devices to be the Mi Note 4.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
