The Snapdragon 675 will likely be the most popular sub-premium SoC this year, as it's one of the select few SoCs that support Sony's 48 MP IMX586 sensor. The chipset made its way over to Geekbench and AnTuTu and managed to outperform the Snapdragon 710, an SoC that logically should be more powerful.

Qualcomm, a while ago, unveiled the latest SoC in its mid-range Snapdragon 600-series, the Snapdragon 675. The SoC is yet to find its way into production phones but has made a trip over to popular benchmark platforms Geekbench and AnTuTu yesterday, posting some pretty interesting results in the process.

On Geekbench, the Snapdragon 675 was spotted on a yet unreleased Hisense device, which is, by all indications, the Hisense U30 that was revealed at CES earlier last week. The device attained a single-core score of 2,273, and a 5,827 score in the multi-core department. 

For some perspective, the Snapdragon 710 averages scores of about 1,850 in the single-core test, and 5,800 in the multi-core test. This shows that the Snapdragon 675 has a handy 20% advantage over the Snapdragon 710 in the single core department, while being right on par in the multi-core test.

On AnTuTu, the Snapdragon 675 earned a total score of 174,402, and CPU and GPU scores of 81,032 and 34,578 respectively. In comparison, the Snapdragon 710-powered Mi 8 SE records a total score of 168,484, with a CPU score of 66,621. That’s in line with the 20% difference in CPU performance we also saw on the Geekbench scores.

This whole thing emphasizes Qualcomm’s almost scatter-brained approach to its naming scheme. The Snapdragon 710 is supposed to be positioned above the Snapdragon 675, but it fails to outperform the latter. We already saw something similar with the Snapdragon 632 and 636 last year, which makes Qualcomm’s hierarchy even more convoluted.

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.
