Qualcomm has announced three SoCs for mid-range smartphones at once: Snapdragon 730, 730G and 665.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset, manufactured according to the 8nm process technology, replaces last year's Snapdragon 710. Its configuration includes eight Kryo 470 processor cores operating at up to 2.2 GHz, and the Adreno 618 GPU.
The same chip will be available in an accelerated version under the name Snapdragon 730G, focused on gaming devices. It differs from the base model by higher video core frequencies and support for Jank Reducer technology, which increases the smoothness of frame changes in games.
The Snapdragon 665 processor, produced using 11-nanometer technology, should replace the SoC Snapdragon 665 in the product line of the manufacturer. The updated chipset got the Adreno 610 graphics accelerator and eight Kryo 260 cores at a frequency of up to 2 GHz.
The first smartphones based on the new single-chip systems will go on sale in the middle of this year.
