The Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G (SD730G Mobile Platform) is a fast mid-range ARM-based SoC largely found on Android tablets and smartphones. It integrates eight cores (octa-core) divided into two clusters. A fast performance cluster contains two ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at up to 2.3 GHz (Kryo 465 Gold) and a power efficiency cluster with six small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz (Kryo 465 Silver). Depending on the workload only single clusters or all cores can run at different clock speeds.

The differences to the Snapdragon 730(G) Kryo 470 are not known, although the performance is comparable.

The chip includes a range of other features like a fast X15 LTE radio (800 Mbits Cat 15 download), Wi-Fi 6 wireless radios (802.11ax), satellite positioning, USB-C 3.1, Spectra 350L ISP, Hexagon 692 DSP, H.265 video en- and decode, an LPDDR4X-3733 dual-channel memory controller and a Adreno 618 Grafikkarte.

A lecturer by profession and an admirer of transitions. I love the way the technological world revolves around me from the introduction of an earpiece to the computing device in a space shuttle, every tiny detail amuses me. I try to put my fascination to words for all the fanatics of this evolution who are ironically hooked to its benefits anyway. Proud to be a part of this generation who saw a tape-recording cassette with 5 songs and a cloud streaming service with a zillion songs inside your pocket.
