A few days ago, we reported that Qualcomm is working on two new mid-range chipsets called the SM6150 and the SM7150. A Qualcomm test device has been seen on Geekbench and it is said to be powered by the SM6150.
The listing on the benchmark site states the device is called “QUALCOMM talos for arm64”. It also reveals it runs Android 9 Pie and has 4GB of RAM. The processor has a base frequency of 1.71GHz, the same as that of Snapdragon 710 devices.
The device scored 2267 points in the single-core test and 6103 points in the multi-core test. The second listing of the device on Geekbench scored 2257 and 5927 in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively. Irrespective of the scores you go with, they are higher than the scores of the Snapdragon 670 and Snapdragon 710.
"Talos" is the testbench for SM6150. SM7150 is being tested on another board with a different codename.

Some sites have reported that the chipset is the Snapdragon 675, the 11nm SoC announced recently for gaming phones. Popular leaker, Roland Quandt says it is the SM6150 but he isn’t sure it is the same chipset as the Snapdragon 670. He said it isn’t the SM7150, as that is said to have a different test name from “talos”.
Nevertheless, we are pretty excited about the new chipset based on these scores. Qualcomm has a Snapdragon event in Hawaii in December where it is expected to unveil at least one new processor. Hopefully, we may get more info about this chipset at the event.
