Lenovo’s Vice President and Head of Lenovo China announced that the company will soon launch a Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered smartphone. Of course, he didn’t reveal more specifications. The upcoming Lenovo Smartphone is rumored to be called Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition.
Last year in December, Lenovo introduced the world’s first Snapdragon 855 powered Lenovo G5 Pro GT 855 version. Xiaomi claims that its Xiaomi Mi 9 was the first smartphone to have Snapdragon 855 that hits mass production. The rumors say that Lenovo will do something similar to get the world’s first smartphone badge one more time.
Samsung already launched Galaxy A80 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset but the device is not yet available to purchase for the public. We don’t even know the pricing of the device yet. That’s why Lenovo is aiming to launch the first Snapdragon 730 smartphone which will be available for consumers to buy.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 is a significant improvement over the Snapdragon 710/ 712. It is utilizing the Kryo 470 cores which have 2x A76 cores which run @2.2GHz and 6x A55 cores which run @1.8GHz. It also improves the GPU performance of the processor with new upgraded Adreno 618.
The new ISP now supports 48MP single camera and up to 192MP snapshot. Qualcomm earlier reported that there are a bunch of devices which will launch with more than 100MP camera. So, We can expect a device running Snapdragon 730 and more than 100MP camera by the end of this year.
The Snapdragon 730 is fabricated on 8nm LPP process which helps to deliver better performance and consumes less amount of battery.
