Today Qualcomm is announcing an update to its Snapdragon 730G platform, introducing the higher-binned Snapdragon 732G. The new chip gives the platform a slight boost in terms of clock frequencies on the part of the CPU and GPU, and will see a release in the an upcoming POCO device.

The new platform is based on the Snapdragon 730G silicon that was released last year, with Qualcomm boosting the clock frequencies though a higher bin selection. The new chip raises the CPU frequencies of its two Cortex-A76 cores 100MHz to up to 2.3GHz, seemingly retaining the same 1.8GHz clock on the six A55 cores.

Qualcomm is further raising the clock frequencies of its GPU and the new variant of the chip promises a +15 uptick in performance.

In recent times, Qualcomm has evolved the habit of releasing new platforms based on similar silicon designs, such as the earlier in the year announced Snapdragon 768G, which is a higher speed binned 765G. The new 732G seemingly follows the same product formula of adopting a new model name although it’s really the same silicon.

Today’s announcement also came with a partnership endorsement from POCO, indicating that they are planning to release the first device powered by the Snapdragon 732G, although we don’t have more information or details such as a release date.

    I hope Mediatek will succeed. Incremental updates like what Intel does in the past, is just a shitty strategy for consumers.

    I agree it would be good to see MediaTek succeed, they seem to be moving in the right direction. However, have you looked at their recent releases? They have multiple tiny incremental updates to various chipsets which then end up on one or 2 devices. It's as MediaTek customise a chipset specific for a phone launch. This also looks like what Qualcomm has started to do with Xiaomi and the 768G and now this chipset.

    What they need is a true more d range using 2xA77 and 35% better Adreno 620.

    Meanwhile dimensity 1000+ walks all over 765G being 90% of the 865.

    But nowhere to be found as they are heavily capacity limited. I would desperately want QCOM to have competition now with Hi-Silicon out of the picture, but have absolutely lost hope....

    Odd to include the Snapdragon 710 but not the Snapdragon 720G? I guess that would not make the Snapdragon 732G look as good, with it sharing the same CPU frequencies as the 720G, so only offering a 15% bump on the GPU.

    The GPUs in these mid-range snapdragons are a sham. Not even as powerful as the 4.5 year old snapdragon 820. I have serious reservations as to whether this gpu will be enough to maintain 90/120fps for 90/120Hz phones. Maybe they are enough now, but what about in 1-2 years' time?

    Clearly it's not meant for you. Most people will get buy fine with this.

    Way to totally dismiss claims of low power GPUs and backhand him.
