The Snapdragon 630, 635, and 660 will succeed the Snapdragon 625, 626, and 653, respectively, with supposed launch dates before the end of the year.

We first heard about the Snapdragon 660 alongside the Snapdragon 835 when both were unconfirmed reports at the time. Now that the Snapdragon 835 is official, its mainstream variants should be coming soon as well. Leaks from Chinese microblogging site Weibo show these to be the Snapdragon 630, 635, and the aforementioned 660.

The Snapdragon 630 and 635 are expected to directly supplant the 14 nm Snapdragon 625 and 626, respectively. The source claims that Qualcomm will continue to utilize octa-core Cortex-A53 chipsets but with minor improvements to power consumption and heat output.

Meanwhile, the upper mid-range Snapdragon 660 should supplant the existing Snapdragon 653 and is expected to implement Cortex-A73 cores to better compete against the Huawei Kirin 960 SoC. Unconfirmed specifications include a 14 nm LPP manufacturing process with integrated Adreno 512 graphics, UFS 2.1 for faster storage transfer rates, and native support for LPDDR4X. The Snapdragon 660 could launch as late as September of this year after the supposed launches of the 630 and 635.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
