As a reminder, the Snapdragon 650 and 652 are big.LITTLE SoCs based on ARM's Cortex A72 acting as the big cores running at 1804MHz, and along with them comes ARM's Cortex A53 clocked at 1440MHz. While both SoCs have 4 little cores, the Snapdragon 652 sports 4 A72 cores while the smaller brother sports only 2.
As a GPU we find an Adreno 510 clocked in at 550MHz. We still don't have much more information on how this new part will be able to perform compared to its predecessors, but we should be expecting levels along the line of the Adreno 418 in the current Snapdragon 808.
The biggest difference between the Snapdragon 650/652 and the high end flagship, the Snapdragon 820 will be in terms of manufacturing node as we'll be seeing the former parts made on a mature 28nm HPm node while the Snapdragon 820 enjoys the more high-end 14nm LPP manufacturing process.

Yaldabaoth - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkThanks!
ImSpartacus - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkThat's it - double cameras confirmed on all new phones in 2016.
We've got soc support so you better believe we're getting the cameras.
nandnandnand - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkThat's why they call it a Dual ISP.
Ba dum tish
phoenix_rizzen - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkInteresting. 2016 is lining up to be a good year for phone SoCs. Hopefully this means a continuation of the "great phones for decent prices" mid-range we've seen this year.
Will be interesting to see how the 650 compares to the 808.
frostyfiredude - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkAnd against the 820 too, those 4 A72s would be quite high performance.
Wilco1 - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkIndeed, based on this comparison with Kirin 950 and SD 820 both at 2.2GHz (http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/compare/... the SD 652 would score ~5200 in MT overall, and ~1600 ST assuming memory controller is not screwed up. That beats the 820 on MT and is very close to Exynos 7420 on either.
This year's high-end will be next year's mid-end... And the high-end will be a close battle between Cortex-A72, Kyro and Exynos M1.
jjj - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkbetter just look at 650 and 652 results instead of guessing http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/compare/...
The Xiaomi is likely at 1.7GHz and the software likely not be final.
edwd2 - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkCurrent benchmarks show that its CPU performs about the same as the Exynos 7420, and its GPU is a slightly better than the Adreno 330 of the 801.
skavi - Thursday, December 17, 2015 - linkPretty impressive given its older manufacturing process.
