Qualcomm has launched a trio of its new smartphone chipsets today. Namely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, Snapdragon 730, and Snapdragon 730G. The former comes as the latest entrant into the Snapdragon 6xx family. The Snapdragon 730 and 730G, on the other hand, make their way to the 7xx family. So, what’s new about these chipsets? Let’s find out!
Snapdragon 665 specifications
Based on the 11nm architecture, the Snapdragon 665 certainly uses lesser power than the Snapdragon 660. The newer chipset does add on to the camera capabilities though, with support for up to 48MP and 16MP single and dual lens respectively. However, the major improvement with the newer chipsets is in the graphics department as well as the AI department. Qualcomm is betting big on the improvements in AI with the Snapdragon 665, which should improve the camera as well as the overall performance of the device.
Snapdragon 730 and Snapdragon 730G specifications
Based on the 8nm architecture are both the Snapdragon 730 and 730G processors. Frankly speaking, they’re both quite identical. They both come with Kryo 470 octa-cores clocked at 2.2GHz. As for the GPU, you get the new Adreno 618. The newer chipsets also add on to the camera capabilities, with support for up to 48MP and 22MP single and dual lens respectively.
However, the differences lie in terms of gaming performance. You see, the “G” in Snapdragon 730G stands for gaming. The processor is specially tuned to provide better gaming performance. While it does feature the same CPU and GPU as the standard Snapdragon 730, it comes with Select Snapdragon Elite Gaming features. This includes support for True HDR10 gaming, as well as a max display resolution of up to 1440p.
It goes without saying that the Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 710 are the budget kings. The SoCs are already found in a majority of mid-range as well as budget flagship devices. With the introduction of the latest chipsets, Qualcomm hopes to improve upon its success. At the time of this writing, there are no confirmed devices with the Snapdragon 665 or the Snapdragon 730. However, we expect them to start rolling out soon. Stay tuned to Mr. Phone to stay up to date with all the buzz in the smartphone world.
