  • Qualcomm talks new smartwatch chip

Unfortunately, the San Diego-based heavyweight champion of mobile SoCs had no actual specifications or even official names to share when vaguely and surprisingly announcing the Snapdragon 700 series back in February. The performance cores feature a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz, while the efficiency ones are toned down to 1.7GHz.

Made on the 10nm LPE (Low Power Early) process instead of the 10nm LPP (Low Power Plus) process from Samsung, the Snapdragon 710 is still going to be 27% faster than chips made on the 14nm technology.

The maximum supported resolution will be 3040 x 1440 or WQHD+, which is the 19:9 ratio that many phones with notches implement nowadays.

If that's the future of mid-range smartphones, can you imagine what tomorrow's Android high-enders will be capable of? The chipset features a combination of eight Kryo3xx cores out of which two are performance cores and six are efficiency cores. Both chips will supposedly have the same Adreno 615 GPU running at 750 MHz, though Qualcomm's AI-specific circuitry may be exclusive to the higher-numbered chip.


The Snapdragon 730 features the same Adreno 615 GPU as the Snapdragon 710.

The processor will also be more powerful though it will be in the same 2+6 CPU core configuration. The chipset gets a better Spectra 350 ISP for imaging and a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) for machine learning, which is also found on some high-end chipsets from Apple and Huawei. The Snapdragon 730 will be the more powerful of the two rumored chips, sporting an octa-core processor with a hexa-core Kryo 4xx cluster running at 1.8GHz and featuring 128KB L2 cache, as well as another dual-core configuration utilizing the same cores clocked at 2.3GHz and boasting twice as much L2 cache.

The chipsets are expected to arrive by the end of this year. Snapdragon 730 will be arriving later because of the delicate techniques required to make the 8nm LPP wafer.
