With an enhanced Adreno 618 GPU, the Snapdragon 730G gives up to 15% faster graphics render over the 730, and is the next "step up" for gamers.

The Snapdragon 730 SoC is an update to the Snapdragon 710 chipset.

The Snapdragon 665 mobile platform for smartphones is built using an 11nm FinFET process.

Like its predecessor, the 665 has four Kryo 260 cores, based off of the ARM Cortex-A73 microarchitecture, but these only go up to 2GHz compared to 2.2 GHz in the 660.

The chipset comes with a Snapdragon X15 LTE Modem that can offer speeds of up to 800 Mbps. This chip is coupled with a new graphics chip called the Adreno 618. It also supports higher-resolution displays.

Just like the Snapdragon 665 SoC, the Snapdragon 730 also supports triple-camera system with a single 48-megapixel sensor (multi frame noise reduction tech), and single 192-megapixel support in snapshot mode. The new chipsets include - Snapdragon 665, Snapdragon 730, and the Snapdragon 730G. The Adreno 610 GPU has a Vulkan 1.1 graphics driver for light gaming but is less powerful as the 730's. The Snapdragon 730G Mobile Platforms are Wi-Fi 6 ready.

Arriving to replace the 660, the 665 doubles the performance capacity compared to the previous one.

Qualcomm says that the new AI engine offers up to 2X faster AI processing.

The 730 offers Qualcomm's fourth-generation AI processor and a computer vision-enabled image signal processor. Other features and enhancements continue to remain the same as the Snapdragon 730.

Camera capabilities are also improved.

Thanks to the CV-ISP in the Snapdragon 730, the camera enables impressive experiences such as 4K HDR video capture with Portrait mode and object segmentation, allowing you to capture even more creative photos and videos in nearly any setting.

AI Engine supports a range of AI software development frameworks, including the Snapdragon Neural Processing SDK and Hexagon NN, Google's Android NN API and TensorFlow Lite, Facebook's Caffe and Caffe2, and ONNX (Open Neural Network Exchange).

It incorporates a 4th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine, Qualcomm Spectra 350 ISP and Qualcomm Hexagon 688 DSP, which also has an additional tensor accelerator unit which allows better speech recognition.

Jank reducer tackles stuttering of games up to 90% while you're playing at 30fps. Hybrid autofocus, optical zoom, zero shutter lag video, video style transfer, and triple camera support is also present, assuming the hardware built around the Snapdragon 665 comes so-equipped.
