Qualcomm AI Day: Snapdragon 665, 730, 730G mobile platforms announced with focus on camera, AI and gaming

All three chipsets are designed with camera, gaming, and AI (Artificial Intelligence) in focus. The Snapdragon 730G, unveiled alongside the stock Snapdragon 730 and the Snapdragon 655, has been created with mobile gaming in mind. With an enhanced Adreno 618 GPU, graphics are rendered up to 15% faster than seen with the Snapdragon 730.

The X12 LTE modem, which was the same as the Snapdragon 636 - supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and cellular download and upload speeds of up to 600Mbps and 150Mbps (LTE Category 13), respectively, with 4X4 MIMO, three times carrier aggregation, and 256-QAM. It supports up to FHD+ (2520 x 1080) display with HDR10.

Additionally, the chipmaker company has also announced a new gaming-focused processor - Snapdragon 730G, where G stands for gaming.

The Adreno 610 GPU here isn't as powerful as the 730s, but it also has a Vulkan 1.1 graphics driver for light gaming.

Snapdragon 730 is built on 8 nm process technology.

The Snapdragon 665 supports the 3rd generation Qualcomm AI Engine, featuring the Hexagon 686 DSP, with the addition of HVX, to enable advanced AI mobile experiences.

While the Snapdragon 665 doesn't offer a modem capable of connecting with the high-speed 5G networks coming on line this year, it should deliver fast data speeds over LTE.

The Spectra 350 includes a Computer Vision ISP which reduce power consumption.

Devices featuring these new Snapdragon parts are expected to hit the market in "mid 2019".

Other features of the Snapdragon 730 include fingerprint readers, iris scanners, 3D face unlock, Qualcomm Adaptive Antenna tuning, Qualcomm Envelope Tracking, and Qualcomm Signal Boost. That includes features like a smarter camera and even AI performance. These are: Snapdragon 665, Snapdragon 730 and Snapdragon 730G.
