Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 732G: more power for midrage devices

September 1, 2020

A successor to the Snapdragon 730G.

With most premium smartphones already costing an average of more than 3,000 AED, some users are now looking into the mid-range option when buying their next smartphones. That also led to the rise of mid-range smartphones over the years, promising performance at par with most flagship devices at less than half the cost.

These waves of mid-range devices are powered by the Snapdragon 730G CPU, released last year. It had considerable success as it offered a decent gaming performance along with 5G support. This is why Qualcomm is following the 730G with the Snapdragon 732G that improves on CPU and GPU speeds along with enhanced AI performance.

Specs-wise, the 732G has a slightly higher clock speed of 2.3GHz compared to the 730G’s 2.2GHz. It still uses the same Adreno 618 GPU from last year, but the graphics rendering has been improved, translating to better framerates when playing games. 

Speaking of gaming, the 732G will also support Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Elite Gaming features that include color tuning when playing in HDR. As this CPU is more energy-efficient, expect improvements in battery life as well.

Xiaomi is the first manufacturer to announce a Snapdragon 732G-powered smartphone though it didn’t say when it will be released. As the current range of mid-range devices still uses the 730G, expect the 732G-powered devices to arrive sometime next year.
