Qualcomm recently announced its Snapdragon 732G, the latest SoC in the semiconductor maker’s Snapdragon 700 series lineup and direct successor to the Snapdragon 730G. Much like its predecessor, the chipset is both designed at targeted and mid-range smart devices, but comes with new and improved features, such as faster AI, improved performance, both with the CPU and GPU.
Regarding the latter point, the clockspeeds of the Snapdragon 732G’s Kryo 470 CPU Prime cores have been given a slight bump from 2.2GHz to 2.3GHz. While its Adreno 618 GPU reportedly a 15% improvement in graphics rendering compared to the GPU of its predecessor. Oh, and its Bluetooth support has also been bumped from 5.0 to 5.1.
Beyond those increments, though, the rest of the Snapdragon 732G’s features remain largely unchanged; it’s still based on the same 8nm die lithography, uses the same Snapdragon X15 LTE modem, plus the same Neural Processing SDK. On top of that, there’s also the same 4th generation Qualcomm AI engine that allows mobile gamers to enjoy their favourite graphically intensive titles without any lag or hiccups.
As to when the Snapdragon 732G will be available, Qualcomm says that the very first phone to ship out with its new chipset will be a POCO’s upcoming smartphone, but doesn’t specify which phone that is. That said, and given the rumours currently floating around, it’s likely that the POCO phone that will be receiving the new chipset is the POCO X3 NFC that is slated to launch on 7 September.
