Qualcomm Announces Three Snapdragon Chips to Hit the Market Mid 2019

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

The new Snapdragon 655 also focuses on mobile gaming, camera capabilities and secure performance.

Qualcomm reckons that the 730G is 15% faster than the standard 730, thanks to an overclocked Adreno 618 graphics processor.

The Snapdragon 730 SoC is an update to the Snapdragon 710 chipset. It upgrades CPU microarchitecture to Kryo 470 based on Arm's Cortex A76 CPU µarch. The Snapdragon X15 LTE Modem handles LTE download speeds as fast as 800Mbps. This chipset can be combined with FHD+ resolution display with HDR 10 support. The chip will provide support for telephoto, wide and ultra-wide lenses, and a single sensor up to 48MP in size. The new chipsets include - Snapdragon 665, Snapdragon 730, and the Snapdragon 730G.

Coming to other mid-range chip, Snapdragon 730 is built on an 8nm process.

Qualcomm is turning its expertise in tiny, low-power mobile designs to the data center, announcing a new chip for AI acceleration that could help address the space and power constraints that data center operators are increasingly fretting over.

The 11-nanometer Snapdragon 665 has more in common with the Snapdragon 660 than the Snapdragon 670.

Their Kyro CPUs feature two performance cores that run at 2.2GHz and six others at 1.8GHz for "efficiency". This SoC also offers an X12 LTE modem for faster and more efficient wireless internet connectivity. It's 2X faster than the previous generation and provides intuitive on-device interactions for camera, gaming, voice, and security. For graphics, it supports the Adreno 610 GPU which the company claims can deliver long-lasting gameplay.

They were dominated and were second best all afternoon, but they can certainly be proud of their efforts. "And of course because he is an extraordinary football player".

The Snapdragon 665 supports the 3rd generation Qualcomm AI Engine, featuring the Hexagon 686 DSP, with the addition of HVX, to enable advanced AI mobile experiences.

The Snapdragon 730, 730G and 665 chipsets are now in the production stage and devices based on these are expected to be available in mid-2019.

The Snapdragon 730 will be the first system-on-chip in Qualcomm's 7 series to include a tensor accelerator. That includes features like a smarter camera and even AI performance.

It also some Qualcomm proprietary gaming features such as as.er... jank reduction, which is fancy speak for stutter removal for games running at 30fps, anti-cheating features and latency manager to optimise network settings. Also, it brings Spectra 350 ISP which supports up to a 36MP single camera, 960fps 720p slo-mo video capture and 4K HDR video Portrait mode.

We haven't really seen any phones in the USA that use Snapdragon 7 series chipsets, with phone makers either opting for the flagship Snapdragon 8 series or midrange 6 series platforms. Qualcomm's looking to change that, a little, with the Snapdragon 730G. It has eight Kryo 260 cores (four performance, four efficiency) that can be clocked up to 2GHz. This particular SoC comes with several Snapdragon Elite Gaming features that are also available on the Snapdragon 855 SoC.

In the photography department, the chipset supports camera resolution up to 48-megapixels, and triple camera support with 5X optical zoom.
