by Joe 6

China’s Weibo is the home to many rumors and speculations about upcoming products and earlier today, a new leak seems to have thrown some light on the possible specifications of the next generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 (MSM8976Pro) chipset. This should be the successor to the Snapdragon 652 octa-core chip that powers many flagship grade models in the market today.

According to the leak, the Snapdragon 653 will be manufactured using the same 28nm process as the 652, which is kind of disappointing. Further, in the specs department, the leak reveals some changes. So, the new 653 (MSM8976Pro) chip is expected to come with the same octa-core architecture as its predecessor, however, it will be 4 x Cortex A73 @ 2GHz + 4 x Cortex A53 @1.4GHz. Another upgrade will be in the GPU department, this time coming with Adreno 515 clocked at 550MHz. Other rumored features include LTE Cat. 9 3 x 60MHz CA, Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi support, LPDDR4 RAM, Dual ISP and 24MP Camera sensor support.


At this moment, we can’t verify the authenticity of this leak, so it’s best to take it with a pinch of salt.

      I am so hoping for this…

  • Can`t be true, since Qualcomm even moved mid and entry level chips at 16nm.
    Probably a 16nm part, that 4 -1.4 A53 looks quite low for a device that’s targeting flagship killer range.

      be careful with the word cant XD

      exactly my point !

      it would be stupid shit to rank the process BELOW 16 nm !
