The Processor executes what you want your smart phone to do. Early phones were the cousins of landline telephone. And now the tradition changes into different core processors hexa-core being the latest. As many companies manufacture the processor QUALCOMM'S SNAPDRAGON has been so famous in it. Its latest was 635 and 835. Then now its new baby is ready to launch 660. SNAPDRAGON 660.

High-end feature in Qualcomm sd660 mobile platform make it our most powerful tire platform till date. It has been designed in such way that it leap in performing advanced photography and enhanced gaming. Adding to this it gives a great and long standing battery life and a tremendous LTE power.

So basically all mobile vendors won't buy the high end processors Because it may end up in producing costly phones So in order to cut the price down vendors basically reduce the specifications depending on their needs So these specs are the maximum limit up-to which the processors can perform But it's in the hands of those vendors who decide the specs

This sums up the some of the most important specs of snapdragon 660. So you may wonder to which category of phones is going to get this chips. Well, some of the mid-range premium smartphones are going to have these chips in them. Currently we hope one phone has this chip that is Oppo R11.
