With this announcement, the lines between flagship, and mid-range gets even more blurrier. The Snapdragon 636 already outperforms the 2016 flagship SoC Snapdragon 821. While this probably won’t outperform 2017’s Snapdragon 835 performance wise, this still is a decent upgrade with all the new features.
