The Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 and 730G are popular chipset announced back in 2019. Different manufacturer featured these two chipset in mid-range smartphones like Pixel 4a, Mi Note 10 Lite, Realme X2 and Motorola One Fusion+. Now qualcomm has refreshed the series with the addition of all new Snapdragon 732G.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 732G is the latest upper mid-range gaming centric processor promising even better performance. The company claims that the 732G is meant for gaming and comes with an upgraded GPU and CPU.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G Overview
The Snapdragon 732G is an octa-core processor based on Samsung’s 8nm fabrication process. It brings two key improvements over the Snapdragon 730G: a Prime core with higher clock speed i.e. 2.3GHz over 2.2GHz and a 15% improvement in the Adreno 618GPU. The 732G fetures 1 x Kyro 470 “Prime” core clocked at up to 2.3GHz, 1x Kryo 470 “Performance” core clocked at up to 2.2GHz, and 6x Kryo 470 “Efficiency” cores clocked at up to 1.8GHz. Prime and Performance core is based on ARM’s Cortex A76 microarchitecture and six efficiency cores are based on ARM’s Cortex-A55 microarchitecture. Since most of the games depends on single core CPU performance, it is good to see higher clock speeds which result better gaming performance.
Snapdragon 732G inherits all the features of 730G. The features includes Qualcomm Game Jank Reducer, True HDR, Vulkan 1.1 Graphics Driver and anti-cheat extensions. Likewise, it also comes with Qualcomm Spectra 350 image signal processor. Hence, it can support up to 192MP image and can record 4K videos in HDR and HLG formats.
The Snapdragon 732G is a 4G LTE processor with X15 LTE modem supporting 3 CA and 4×4 MIMO on two carriers. Similarly, it offers a peak download of up to 800Mbps and a peak upload speed of up to 150Mbps.
Further, the FastConnect 6200 subsystem makes it Wi-Fi 6 ready along with Dual band simultaneous, Target Wakeup Time, 8×8 sounding, WPA3 security support.
The graphics in it supports a peak display resolution of Quad HD+ (2K) along with HDR10. Furthermore, the chipset also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+.
Qualcomm confirmed that POCO will be the first brand to feature the latest chipset. Moreover, POCO is launching the new smartphone POCO X3 soon, thus X3 might be the first smartphone in the market with the latest chipset.
