The 660 will follow the footsteps of Snapdragon 652, but according to the sources, it will be much closer to their flagship chipset.

 

Although it won't be built on a 10nm process like Snapdragon 835, but rather 14nm, it will use an octa-core CPU with Kryo 280 cores, the same cores as the 835. The GPU tagged with the SoC should be an Adreno 512.
