Snapdragon 735 leaked specs
An alleged internal document leak showcases the features of the upcoming Snapdragon 735 SoC. It suggests that the chip will be built on a 7nm architecture. It’ll feature an octa-core CPU in a novel 1+1+6 core configuration – a middle ground between the 855’s 2+2+4 and the 2+6 of the 730.
It will be clocked at 1×2.9GHz + 1×2.4GHz + 6×1.8GHz and the Kryo 400-branded cores are likely going to be Cortex-A76 derivatives for the two main ones while the 6 others will likely be Cortex-A55-based. As for the GPU, it’ll come with an Adreno 620 GPU clocked at 750MHz. The S735 will also come with an NPU220 clocked at 1GHz for AI-related operations.
