Details of the Snapdragon 735 revealed - An incremental upgrade on the Snapdragon 730?
Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 730 and 730G back in April, which means it's about time we got a successor. That successor will come in the form of the Snapdragon 735, and details of the SoC have now surfaced.
According to the source report, the Snapdragon 735 will feature two Cortex-A76 Kryo cores: one clocked at 2.36 GHz, and the other clocked at 2.32 GHz. Those cores will be joined by six Cortex-A55 cores, all clocked at 1.73 GHz. We're not sure why the two big cores just have slightly different clock speeds, though.
The Snapdragon 735 will be built with a 7nm manufacturing process, likely TSMC's. That's an improvement on the Snapdragon 730 that was built on Samsung's 8nm node. Considering the details we have, we expect the Snapdragon 735 to offer a 5-10% performance and efficiency increase over the outgoing Snapdragon 730.
A release date is currently unknown but we expect it to be unveiled within the next few months.
