Qualcomm Announces 8nm Snapdragon 730G, 730 & Mid-Range Snapdragon 665

Qualcomm AI Day: Snapdragon 665, 730, 730G mobile platforms announced with focus on camera, AI and gaming

Representing a step down from its flagship 800-series parts, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, 730, and 730G platforms aim to offer improved gaming, AI processing, photo and video imaging, and networking. It's easy to dismiss announcements as this as of course they brought out new chips they do every year, or they're artificially reducing the capabilities so the higher end processors are more desirable, of course, they are, unfortunately, that's capitalism.

For gaming enthusiasts, the Snapdragon 665 features the Adreno 610 GPU, which is created to deliver improved and long lasting gameplay, and also supports Vulkan 1.1. 730 brings 4th generation multi-core Qualcomm AI Engine which will deliver 2X fast AI on smartphones, it will be faster than the Snapdragon 710. The all-new Snapdragon 665 Mobile Platform is built on the 11nm manufacturing process. That's a somewhat significant difference considering both the Snapdragon 730 and 730G are based on the same eight-core Kryo 470 CPU and Adreno 618 GPU.

On the connectivity front, it supports dual 4G VoLTE with dual standby, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, and Qualcomm X12 LTE modem with support for download speeds up to 600Mbps, and upload speeds up to 150Mbps.

The Snapdragon 730 sports Kyro 470 processors as well as an Adreno 618 GPU. Snapdragon 665 also supports aptX Adaptive Audio and Qualcomm Aqstic. At the moment, there aren't any new devices that have been announced with the Snapdragon 665, 730 and 730G, but one can be sure to expect a slew of new phones in the middle of 2019.

But Jeremy Renner will soon be getting his own starring Marvel vehicle, according to The Hollywood Reporter . Will there be cameos? Disney is pulling out all the stops for its streaming service...and it's working.


Rather than using an 8-series Snapdragon processor - the thing that makes our favourite phones go zoom - Qualcomm has something a little less expensive in mind.

The Qualcomm Spectra 165 ISP in the Snapdragon 665 is reinforced with AI, providing intuitive scene recognition and auto adjustments like HDR. It also has four low-power Cortex-A53 Kryo 260 cores that are clocked at 1.8GHz.

In the SD665 the GPU has been upgraded from a Adreno 512 to an Adreno 610 which should provide a generational jump and supports Vulkan 1.1.

It also uses Spectra 160 ISP rather than the Snapdragon 670's Spectra 250 for image processing. Qualcomm claims devices using the Snapdragon 730 will be able to pick a user's voice more accurately even from a far distance.

There might not be a 5G iPhone until 2021
Huawei has been accused of using "dubious tactics" to extract trade secrets from US companies, and Apple is one of them. Not only would it be paying a rival, it could also create problems with the USA government.


The Snapdragon 730G has many similiarities with Snapdragon 730.

Camera capabilities are also improved. It also means the Snapdragon 730 can do 4K HDR video capture in portrait mode, and support devices with triple camera arrays, like telephoto, portrait, and ultra-wide lenses. The problem with this last claim is that the Snapdragon 710 only appeared in a handful of midrange phones from companies like Xiaomi-a huge brand in China, but one with nearly no presence within the United States. The chip itself features four performance cores to handle the heavy-duty tasks, and four efficiency cores to take care of the light housekeeping.

Qualcomm said the gaming-centric chipset has lower WiFi latency to support efficient online gaming and provide smooth, fast gameplay. Lastly, there's a motion-smoothing "jank reducer" feature that helps minimise stutter for games running at 30 frames per second.

The Snapdragon 665 supports dual camera upto 16 MP and single camera upto 48 MP.
