Oppo is expected to launch new smartphones in its R-series with Snapdragon 670 processor. It was Oppo that launched world’s first Snapdragon 660 powered smartphones – Oppo R11 and R11 Plus. And, now if the rumors are to be believed that company would also become first to launch first Snapdragon 670 powered smartphones, again in the R-series.
The two expected Oppo devices from R-series are R13 and R13 Plus. They seem to have recently been certified by 3C. The spotted model numbers are “PAAT00” & “PAAM00.”
Talking about the Snapdragon 670 processor, this isn’t official yet and going by the leaks we have received so far, the SoC will be the first mid-range chipset to built on the 10nm FinFET process. The new high-end Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810 are built on the same 10nm process technology.
According to several leaks, the Snapdragon 670 processor packs six Cortex-A55 high-efficiency cores called Kryo 300 Silver and two Cortex-A75 high-performance cores called Kryo 300 Gold. It will come coupled with Adreno 615 GPU and Qualcomm’s Gigabit modem. Recently, the processor at the Geekbench scored 1845 on single-core and 5215 on multi-core tests. Going by a few wild leaks, the Oppo R13 smartphones will support the full-screen display and sport iPhone X-like notch on the top.
What’s more interesting is the under display fingerprint sensor and advanced face unlock for authentication. These are just the raw details from wild leaks so take them with a pinch of salt.
