Qualcomm has introduced three new processors to the Snapdragon 700 and 600 series that will help bring premium experiences to mid-range priced devices. First up is the Snapdragon 730 that brings in improved AI performance along with better camera support and gaming performance. The Snapdragon 730 mobile platform comes with a 4th generation multi-core Qualcomm AI Engine that fastens on-device AI interactions for camera, gaming, voice and security.
The Snapdragon 730 also comes with Qualcomm Spectra 350 that features a dedicated Computer Vision (CV) ISP to provide up to 4x overall power savings in Computer Vision compared to the previous generation. This means 4K HDR videos in bokeh mode is now possible, has the ability to support triple-cameras (ultra-wide, portrait and telephoto lenses) and HEIF format support. On the gaming side of things, the Snapdragon 730 features Qualcomm Adreno 618 GPU with Vulkan 1.1 support for better gaming experience.
The Snapdragon 730G is essentially a gaming-friendly version of Snapdragon 730 that comes with an overclocked Adreno 618 GPU, HDR gaming support, reduced janking, anti-cheating support and optimised performance of latest games.
The Snapdragon 665 comes with a 3rd-gen AI Engine, Spectra 165 ISP, up to 48MP triple camera support and Adreno 610 GPU.
First devices powered by these chipsets are expected to launch in mid-2019.
