Qualcomm today announced three new chipsets for entry level and mid-range smartphones – Snapdragon 720G, Snapdragon 662, and Snapdragon 460. The first one promises to bring many of the Elite Gaming features of the 765G with support for HDR, dynamic color range and high-quality synchronized sound with Qualcomm aptX Adaptive.

The SD662 will bring triple-camera support, which is a first for a Qualcomm 6-series chipset. Snapdragon 460 might be most affordable of all three, but still will be able to provide an increase in CPU and GPU performance over other 4-series chipsets.

According to Rajen Vagadia, president of Qualcomm India, the chip maker is introducing these three platforms for 4G markets where seamless connectivity access is still unraveling. Kedar Kondap from the product management team of the San Diego company confirmed the 720G, 662, and 460 will be able to provide gaming experience at a more affordable price.

Senior executives of smartphone companies such as Manu Kumar Jain at Xiaomi and Madhav Sheth at Realme confirmed they will “work closely” with Qualcomm to introduce phones with the new chips, including the most interesting of all three – Snapdragon 720G.

                      Snapdragon 460 (11nm)

Snapdragon 460

Key features:

  • CPU – 8x Kryo 240 cores up to 2.3GHz
  • GPU – Adreno 610 GPU
  • DSP – Hexagon 683 with vector extensions, hardware-accelerated TensorFlow Lite
  • ISP – Spectra 340 ISP supporting 25MP camera, or dual 16MP camera
  • Connectivity
  • Cellular – Snapdragon X11 LTE modem
  • WiFi 6 ready
  • Bluetooth 5.1 with advanced audio via the Qualcomm FastConnect 6100 platform
  • GNSS – Dual-Frequency (L1 and L5) GNSS for GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, Beidou, NavIC
  • Quick Charge 3.0 – 0 to 50% in 20 minutes
  • Process – 11nm

Snapdragon 460 is an update to the Arm Cortex-A53 based Snapdragon 450 processor with the custom Kryo 240 processor delivering up to 60% extra performance, while Adreno 610 GPU delivers up to 70% performance increase over Adreno 506.

Highlights:

  • CPU – Octa-core “Kryo 260” processor with four Cortex-A73 cores @ up to 2.0 GHz, and four Cortex-A53 cores @ up to 1.8 GHz
  • GPU – Adreno 610 GPU
  • DSP – Hexagon 683 with vector extensions, hardware-accelerated TensorFlow Lite
  • ISP – Spectra 340T ISP supporting 48MP cameras, HEIF capture, and triple cameras
  • Connectivity
  • Cellular – Snapdragon X11 LTE modem
  • WiFi 6 ready
  • Bluetooth 5.1 with advanced audio via the Qualcomm FastConnect 6100 platform
  • GNSS – Dual-Frequency (L1 and L5) GNSS for GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, Beidou, NavIC
  • Quick Charge 3.0 – 0 to 50% in 20 minutes
  • Process – 11nm

Snapdragon 662 looks very similar to Snapdragon 665, but with a slower modem, and better ISP. It also shares many features of Snapdragon 460, but with more powerful Cortex-A73 CPU cores, and better camera support.
