Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460 with India Focus GPS support

Qualcomm this week has announced three new chipsets ranging from entry level SOC to Upper Mid tier SOC called 720G (Announced after Powerful Snapdragon 765), 662, and 460 SoCs. The new chipsets are said to focus on markets such as India as they now offer new GPS Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC). Also the biggest elephant in the room is lack of 5G support. But these modern SOC do have latest Wifi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 support. As said in the press release:

“Today’s smartphone users want fast, seamless connectivity, advanced features and long-lasting battery life,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “This expansion of our 4G lineup enables our partners to offer sophisticated solutions that meet global demand and enable a remarkable gaming experience across multiple tiers and price segments.”

Snapdragon 720G– This 8nm SOC has the following features

CPU

The most powerful of the lot, this SOC has two cluster design. The most powerful cluster has 2x Kryo 470 CPU running at 2.20 Ghz.

The second lightweight cluster has 6x Kryo 470 based running at 1.8Ghz.

GPU

Adreno 618 handles the GPU duty.

DSP

This has the new hexagon 688

Memory

Memory support is limited to 2x16bit, LPDDR4x @ 1866 Mhz.

ISP

This uses Spectra 350 for ISP and can support 36MP single / 22MP dual sensors.
