Snapdragon 732G announced: 15% faster GPU, 100 MHz CPU cores

Peter, 31 August 2020

The Snapdragon 730G proved to be a popular chip for mid-range smartphones and was used in the likes of the Pixel 4a, Poco X2 and Mi Note 10 Pro. Manufacturers looking for a bit more speed can now go with the faster Snapdragon 732G.

It’s the same 8nm silicon as the 730G, but with higher clock speeds. The two big Kryo 470 cores now run at 2.3 GHz (+0.1 GHz over the old chip) while the Adreno 618 GPU has been boosted to deliver 15% more performance.

The rest is the same with an LTE modem (X15) and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Bluetooth was bumped up to version 5.1, but it has the same features, including aptX Adaptive and TrueWireless Stereo Plus. Quick Charge 4+ is supported as well.

Snapdragon Elite Gaming enables HDR rendering and Game Jank Reducer. Also, it supports Vulkan 1.1, so this can be used in mid-range gaming phones.

The built-in ISP can record 4K video at 30 fps and supports HDR10 and HLG for high dynamic range footage. It can compress photos with the HEIF format. The AI accelerator offers performance up to 3.6 TOPS.

The first phone to be powered by the Snapdragon 732G will be unveiled soon – Poco has called dibs.

Why not call it just 730G+ ? It's exact same.

Snapdragon 732G should feature 1 cortex a76 at 2.5ghz, 2 cortex a76 at 2.2ghz and 5 cortex a55 at 2ghz. The Gpu clock speed should be at 200mhz higher than the stock speed (adreno 619)

It's Covid-19 Pandemic... everything slows down. That's why the clock only raise 0.1GHz. :))
