Nokia phone with a Snapdragon 710 chipset may be coming this autumn

It looks like the Snapdragon 710 chipset is a hit with phone makers. Even Google may be working on a mid-range Pixel with the new AI-focused chipset. And so is HMD.

A new Nokia will reportedly launch in the Autumn/Winter period (possibly at IFA in September). Its codenamed Phoenix and will use the S710 chip, so it could be a follow-up to the Nokia 7 plus or another Plus model.

Both chips are essentially mid-range versions of the flagship Snapdragons. The 710 features two Cortex-A75 derived big cores and six A55-based little ones. And it uses a 6-series Adreno GPU, which promises 35% speed boost over the Snapdragon 660 GPU. The AI prowess of the chip comes from the Hexagon 685 DSP borrowed from the Snapdragon 845.

PS. The S710-powered Pixel is code named Bonito, so if you see that name in a benchmark youre probably looking at one of Googles 2019 phones.
