Smartphone industry is recently going through a trend where premium mid-range segment has become the most popular category. The Qualcomm has recently launched Snapdrgaon 675 on 11 nm fabrication process technology and it has quickly become the first chose of smartphone brands to use this chipset in their premium mid-segment devices. The other chipset that comes close to it is another chipset from Qualcomm namely Snapdgragon 835 which is a two-generation old flagship chipset and is based on 10 nm fabrication. The prices of flagship phones of two year back time have now become very affordable. So, we are comparing Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 VS Snapdragon 835 to clear your dilemma whether to buy a two year flagship phones such as OnePlus 5, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 or Moto Z3 or buy the new launches such as Vivo V15 Pro, Redmi Note 7 Pro etc. which are powered by Snapdgragram 675.
Snapdgragon 675 vs 835 (Performance)
The snapdgragon 675 contains Qualcomm Kryo 460 octa-core CPU which is clocked at the maximum speed of 2.0 Ghz. It uses 11 nm process technology. For GPU, it contains the company owns Qualcomm Adreno 612 GPU. The used DSP technology is Haxagon 685, Vector processor, and Qualcomm owns All-Way Aware technology.
On the other hand, Snapdragon 835 contains Qualcomm Kryo 280 octa-core CPU which is clocked up the 2.45 Ghz. The process technology is 10nm. So, the high clocked speed and less fabrication distance gives it an edge over 675. The Adreno 540 GPU is used for advanced 3D graphics rendering and more color and vividness to give an immersive visual experience. The Qualcomm Hexagon 682 DSP is used with Qualcomm All-Ways Aware technology.
Based on true performance, Snapdragon 835 is slightly better than 675 but that will not be noticed day-to-day use. The 10nm and 11nm chipset almost work identical and are equally power-efficient.
