Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730 Is As Fast As Their SD 835

That’s not bad for a mid-range phone

Samsung’s newest mid-ranger, the Galaxy A80, comes with a whole host of new tech: new pop-up, rotating camera module, an all-screen display and a brand-new mid-range processor from Qualcomm: the Snapdragon 730.

Armed with Adreno 618 GPU combo, we had a feeling that the chipset would perform well in AnTuTu. And we were right – the device that was loaned to us during our Bangkok coverage of the event returned a score of 206660 in the benchmark, putting it in the same level as the Snapdragon 835 and Kirin 970 chipset.

The Snapdragon 730 is built on an 8nm process, meaning it’s extremely power efficient, and its use on the Galaxy A80 should give it excellent power endurance. The Snapdragon 730 features six Kryo 460 cores running at speeds up to 2.2Ghz.
