Qualcomm expected to bring Snapdragon 710 and 730 mobile processors

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. Besides that though, there wasn't much that was revealed about the series.

The Snapdragon 710 is built on Samsung's 10nm LPE process, which is known to perform 27 percent better than its 14nm predecessor. It has Kryo 4xx cores that has performing cores running at 2.3GHz and efficiency cores running at 1.8GHz. Camera input will flow through Qualcomm's Spectra 250 image processor, a bit of silicon capable of handling images as large as 32 megapixels as well as directing up to three cameras at once.

One of the biggest takeaways from the new leak is that the Snapdragon 730 will supposedly be manufactured on Samsung's 8nm Low-Power Plus (LPP) process node which the South Korean tech giant finalized in October. The Snapdragon 710 can also support displays with WQHD (3040 x 1440) resolution, which measures up to an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The Snapdragon 730 features the same Adreno 615 GPU as the Snapdragon 710. This is reportedly made in 8 nm LPP process which means it will consume 10 per cent less battery power, reports claimed.

But now a very convincing image purporting to show the complete lists of Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 730 features is making the rounds, looking more impressive than we ever dared to imagine.

Sitting between the 600 series and the flagship 800 series, the 7xx will feature octa-core CPU where six of the cores are for efficiency and two of them for performance. Wireless connectivity features are also the same as it carries the same SD660 transceiver.

Since Qualcomm said the 700 series would be AI-oriented, there will be a specific machine learning neural processing unit called NPU 120, coupled with GPU/HVX on the Snapdragon 730, while the 710 will not have the dedicated NPU.
