The Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 Series some time ago even placed Xiaomi as the manufacturer that would Launch them , Chinese firm as Xiaomi Today in all the details of the new chipsets for the best mid-range
These are two Processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 730 , which will be placed in a new range halfway between the average performance of the 600 series and the high performance of the 800 series, and which some have even placed as SoC’s of high range -or medium / high-, but that will undoubtedly boost smartphones more compensated in quality / price of the market.
Its keys are simple to understand, both will be manufactured with Samsung technology , and both arrive with the new Adreno 615 GPU , running at 750 MHz clock and capable of running graphics at more than 60 fps on QHD 1.440p screens .
What does the newest Qualcomm have to offer?
It’s about two chipsets similar in architecture but different in capabilities , more than you might expect, and that is that while the Snapdragon 710 uses a manufacturing process of 10 nanometers Low-Power Early of Samsung, the Snapdragon 730 climbs a rung with the 8 nanometers Low-Power Plus .
In fact, Qualcomm claims a 27% higher performance with Snapdragon 710 manufacturing technology, adding 40% lower consumption compared to other options available in the current market.
The smallest model, the Snapdragon 710, uses 2 “large” Kyro 3xx cores running up to 2.2 GHz, leaving the most everyday tasks for 6 “small” Kyro 3xx cores that stay at 1.7 GHz and save battery . The image processor is a Spectra 250 capable of up to 32 megapixels.
For its part, the Snapdragon 730 up the ante with 2 Kyro 4xx cores up to 2.3 GHz , and another 6 Kyro 4xx cores that reduce their performance to 1.8 GHz frequency. In your case, mount a Spectra 350 with support for FS2 sensors.
In everything else they are very similar, sharing the Adreno 615 GPU mentioned above, capable up to QHD resolution 1.440p in 19: 9 format (3,040 x 1,440 pixels) at a speed of 60+ fps, 10 bits of color depth and HDR10 .
The connectivity is complete with 4G LTE with support for dual SIM active, WiFi 802.11ac dual band , Bluetooth 5.0 and USB v3.1 Type C, allowing mounting memories UFS 2.1 and RAM LPDDR4x .
The only palpable difference that we can add is the NPU ( Neural Processing Unit ) that we will find in the Snapdragon 730 model , and that will allow this chipset to increase efficiency in machine learning tasks and make it compatible with the AI to adapt to the future of smartphones.
Xiaomi already works on two phones with the Snapdragon 710
As it had been rumored, the Xiaomi has already launched two phones that will use the Snapdragon 710 platform from Qualcomm, and that are being developed with the denominations ‘Comet’ and ‘Sirius’ to reach the market at the end of this same year.
No smartphone is expected with the Snapdragon 730 until the first quarter of 2019, and the expected specifications for the two mysterious Xiaomi , which could coincide with hypothetical Redmi 6, you can see in the attached image.
The smartphone market does not stop, although the way to the future seems more marked by the software than by a huge differentiation in hardware, where AI’s processing is seen more than the capacity of the cores …
