The Snapdragon 670 has not been officially unveiled yet. However, there are rumors a phone from 360 Mobiles will be the first to launch with the chip. New reports say Xiaomi also has two phones in the pipeline that will be powered by the processor.
The info comes from the editor-in-chief of XDA Developers, Mishaal Rahman. In a tweet posted last night, he said that the Chinese giant has two devices powered by the Snapdragon 670 in development. He adds that the phones are codenamed “Comet” and “Sirius”.
Xiaomi has (at least) 2 devices with the unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 (sdm670) in the works: "comet" and "sirius".
Also confirms @rquandt's report which showed sdm670's little cluster has 6 cores and the big cluster has 2 cores. (targetconfig.xml in /vendor/etc/perf).

If we were to take a wild guess we would say one of the two phones is the Mi Note 4. This makes sense since the Mi Note 3 is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor. For the second phone, our guess is the Mi Max 3 but that is a long shot. Notwithstanding, the release of both phones are probably still months away, so there is enough time to find out if our guesses are correct.
Apart from the codenames for the two phones, it is also revealed that it has been confirmed that the Snapdragon 670 indeed has a 2+6 CPU core arrangement.
Back in February, it was reported by Winfuture.de that the SDM670 will not use the 4+4 big.LITTLE architecture. Instead, it will have two high-performance cores paired with six low-performance cores.
