The company also announced several new products for its Snapdragon line of mobile phone chips that include new AI, gaming, camera and performance improvements.

Qualcomm is working with unnamed devs to optimise games for the mid-range gaming-focused processor.

The Snapdragon 730G is a gaming-focused variant of the 730 that offers faster graphics rendering, HDR gaming and other performance-enhancing features.

Lastly, the Snapdragon 665 is aimed for cheaper Android devices, though it boasts 2x faster AI on-device processing compared to the previous generation. It is based on the 8 nm manufacturing process. It is based on Samsung's 8nm LPP process and upgrades Kyro 360 to Kyro 470 which is based on Cortex A76. It also comes with an X12 LTE modem module capable of WiFi speeds up to 600 Mbps. The eight cores are divided into 2 performance and 6 efficiency cores, coupled with a new graphics chip called the Adreno 618. It also supports higher-resolution displays. The ISP provides four times the power savings as its predecessor and can support a triple-camera setup made up of telephoto, ultra-wide and portrait lenses.

Snapdragon 730G Chipset is a gaming processor with nearly every single specifications similar to that of the Snapdragon 730 SoC.

Unlike the 655, the Snapdragon 730 features a fourth-generation AI engine that greatly improves photography features.

Qualcomm on Tuesday unveiled a new range of mobile processors for mid-range devices.

For gaming enthusiasts, Snapdragon 665 is created to allow users to play latest and popular games with fast frame rates, super smooth interactions, surround-sound audio and extremely realistic graphics.

Snapdragon 730 uses Kryo 470 cores, at 2.2GHz. It has a third-generation AI engine that's twice as fast as the one on the Snapdragon 660, and the Spectra 165 ISP introduces AI-assisted camera features.

Qualcomm expects smartphones with the Snapdragon 665 and 730/730G to go to market in mid-2019. Qualcomm claims devices using the Snapdragon 730 will be able to pick a user's voice more accurately even from a far distance. Snapdragon 665 will support portrait mode with HDR, 4K video capture, HD (240fps) slow-motion video capture and 3D face unlock using the front camera.

With the Snapdragon 730, you can connect quickly and effortlessly virtually wherever you are. Qualcomm has also added support for 48MP camera sensors, albeit without MFNR or ZSL support.

The Snapdragon 665 has Adreno 610 GPU for graphical tasks. Of particular interest is the new Snapdragon 730G, an iteration designed specifically with gamers in mind.

For GPU scores, the Snapdragon 730 duo also take the lead with a significant margin between them and the Snapdragon 710.

This chipset comes with a Jank Reducer feature which apparently reduces jank or stuttering of games by 90 percent at games running at 30 fps. 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.
