This expansion of our 4G lineup enables our partners to offer sophisticated solutions that meet global demand and enable a remarkable gaming experience across multiple tiers and price segments.”

The Snapdragon 720G reimagines extraordinary gaming and entertainment experiences with select Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming features, striking capture capabilities, and intelligent performance. The Snapdragon 662 brings camera and AI capabilities to the 6-series, and features the new Qualcomm Spectra 340T, which supports new triple camera configurations and smooth switching between them.

The third SoC, the Snapdragon 460, offers significant boosts in connectivity, AI and camera improvements. It also features performance CPU cores and an updated GPU architecture that translates into up to 70% and 60% increase in performance, respectively.

Devices based on Snapdragon 720G are expected to be commercially available in Q1 2020 and devices based on Snapdragon 662 and 460 are expected to be commercially available by the end of the year.
