Qualcomm sets date for event unveiling new Wear OS chipsets

According to the manufacturer, the overall package will offer "twice the performance" of its Snapdragon 660 chip.

The Snapdragon 670 is the latest top dog in the 600 series of Qualcomm's flowery-named chip line up, which is the range that sits below the more powerful Snapdragon 800 series.

Dallas County announces first West Nile Virus death of 2018
In an outbreak in 2012, more than 1,000 people were infected and 36 people died across four North Texas counties. The Health Department wants to remind the public that the virus is present and has been around for many years.

But AI performance sounds like it has been given even more of a boost, with Qualcomm claiming that it's up to 1.8 times better. The new generation also gets an Adreno 615 GPU, capable of delivering what Qualcomm calls "console-like gaming". In practical terms, that means that performance and energy efficiency haven't significantly improved over the years. 4K video playback and recording at 30fps is supported. The Snapdragon 670 supports single-lens cameras of up to 25MP and dual-lens ones of up to 16MP, and should do a good job of noise reduction. Another upgrade comes from the QuickCharge4+ support (hint: the difference is the +), taking you from 0 to 50% battery in 15 minutes. "Set your watches." It will not be a surprising move by the chipmaker, as Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC that now powers most of the Wear OS devices is getting quite old. Thus, it appears that over two years after bringing the Snapdragon Wear 2100 SoC for Android Wear smartwatches, Qualcomm is back in the headlines for its new silicon.
