Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460: all specifications

qualcomm snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460 specifications

We recently met the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765 / 765G, the new high-end and mid-high-end processors from Qualcomm. What is very good, since Many of us like to see the best and most powerful brand. However, we should not neglect the mid-range and low-end chips, which are precisely where they are. the bulk of manufacturers sales. Mainly in markets such as China or India. Which, are not at all negligible but quite the opposite.

Taking this last into account, Qualcomm has not wasted time and has already presented the Snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460 at an event in New Delhi, India. These chips bring interesting news (some more than others) and are designed to live with their predecessors.

In the case of the Snapdragon 720G, this comes to be located above the Snapdragon 710 and 712, both chips with a combination of power and efficiency difficult to overcome. Instead, Snapdragon 662 will be between SD 660 and SD 665. Finally, the Snapdragon 460 represents a radical change that greatly benefits the experience of low-end phones, compared to the SD 450.

To learn more about these processors and their main features, let's take the opportunity to compare them with the processors that precede them:

The Snapdragon 720G is a clear improvement, both of SD 710 and 712. But also, the G indicates that this chip is oriented to the gaming sector, same as SD 730G or SD 765G.

The power of this processor is guaranteed, thanks to its Kryo 465 cores with big.LITTLE configuration and 8nm architecture. On the other hand, the improvement in artificial intelligence ensures a better and more efficient gaming experience, photographic ability and overall performance.

Also, taking advantage of the novelty of the screens with a refresh rate higher than 60 Hz, phones that carry this processor may include a 120 Hz display. Another considerable improvement is in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity and as an extra, support for the satellite positioning system of India is included; NavIC

The Snapdragon 662 is a cheaper option in the mid-range, which It is below SD 665 but it is still a good option. In fact, it only changes for the better in aspects such as the Spectra 340T ISP with which it could offer better images in low-light scenarios, in addition to including support for augmented reality options through the camera. It also includes Wifi-6, Bluetooth 5.1, aptX and support for NavIC.

Qualcomm includes for the first time in the 400 family the Kryo cores with this processor. In fact, the manufacturer promises that, compared to the SD 450, the performance improves by 70%. As if this wasn't enough, It also includes the Adreno 610 GPU, which until now had belonged to the 600 family and up. This has a positive impact not only on the overall performance of the devices, but also on the gaming experience.

Without taking away the other processors that have been presented along with the SD 460, we believe that this is the one that brings the greatest change in the sector to which it belongs. The Snapdragon 460 is a total improvement of Qualcomm's low-end chips, this means that for a very low price, users who buy phones with this processor will have a more decent user experience and increasingly closer to the mid-range.

This only makes us think one thing … With the advancement of technology, it is increasingly difficult to differentiate a low-end mobile from a mid-range mobile and the same with the mid-range of the high-end.

The common points of these new Qualcomm processors

As you have noticed, The main improvements of these processors are in Wifi-6 connectivity, so far available only in the high range, Bluetooth 5.1 to improve energy savings and latency, in addition to Enhanced functions in artificial intelligence (AI).

Regrettably, The improvements of these processors do not include 5G connectivity, which is still restricted for the high-end and now also for the mid-high range in mobiles such as the Redmi K30 / K30 5G. Perhaps, in one or two more generations we can see the first Snapdragon mid-range or low-end processor with 5G connectivity.

This is something that surely demotivates some, but Qualcomm has reasons not to do so, considering that this technology is not a priority in these price ranges, especially because 5G networks still have a long way to establish themselves. However, it is also important to mention that have improved 4G connectivity by including dual VoLTE support, in the Snapdragon 720G.

What will be the first phones to carry the Snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460?

Although it’s too early to make sure these new processors are mobile, Realme wanted to take advantage of the novelty of this release to ensure that it is one of the first to use them. Specifically the Snapdragon 720G, a more than right choice for the mid-range with potential in the gaming world.

It is not unreasonable to think that brands like Realme, Oppo, Vivo or Xiaomi will be among the first to release the new Qualcomm processors, as has happened before.

Anyway… What do you think of these processors? What do you think is the most interesting of the three Y In which of the mobiles that are about to arrive will you expect to see them?
