Qualcomm has recently announced that Snapdragon 730 is the new system-on-chip that will power most of the phones by the end of this year. The one before it, the 710 was placed in devices like Samsung’s Galaxy A8s and the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. Qualcomm has launched a faster version, the 712. However, 730 is much, much better.

It will also offer 960fps slow motion video. The company also said that it enables the Jank Reducer” feature, which is able to reduce janks by 90% in those games of 30fps.
About Snapdragon 665
The company also announced the Snapdragon 665, which is the follow-up of the 660. However, the recent release of 675 in Vivo V15 Pro makes the new chip not to be so different from the others.
