As for Snapdragon 675, the latest mid-range chipset from Qualcomm sits just below Snapdragon 710.

On the gaming front, especially online gaming, the new chipset is capable of delivering the best experience on mid-range devices - thanks to the Snapdragon X12 LTE modem with support for up to 600Mbps LTE connectivity and tri-band, Wi-Fi 802.11ac 2x2 with MU-MIMO. Also, it can perform 15 percent faster with social media apps launch time, and 35 percent faster web browsing as per Qualcomm. Qualcomm also touts that the SD675 includes support for its Aqstic and aptX audio technologies. Two of these are Cortex A76-based performance cores clocked at 2GHz, whereas the remaining six are Cortex A55-based efficiency cores clocked at 1.7GHz. Fast forward just a few months and Qualcomm has now doubled up, launching the Snapdragon 675 at its 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong. The chip maker is working with game developers to produce "next-level" games for the Snapdragon 600 level chipsets.

In addition to the same old single-cam 25-megapixel still capture with zero shutter lag (30 fps), this Spectra 250L has gained a 48-megapixel snapshot mode to please manufacturers who want to offer something bolder. The new chipset supports a triple camera configuration in the front or back and can support numerous popular camera features of smartphones today, including enhanced portrait mode, 3D face unlock, wide angle, super wide angle, and telephoto up to 5x optical zoom.
