Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 720G, 662, 460 Chips

Technology giant Qualcomm today announced not one, not even two, but three chipsets for smartphones and tablets. The new arrivals are called the Snapdragon 720G, Snapdrgon 662, and the Snapdragon 460. Their names are already quite telling in regards to the exact device price range they seek to cater to.

For example, the Snapdragon 720G is an upper-mid-range offering intended to power devices that want to bridge the gap between flagships and high-performing non-flagships, so to speak. The Snapdragon 662, meanwhile, aims to be a solution for smartphones and tablets that target that golden mean of price and performance, whereas the Snapdragon 460 is a system-on-chip creation for decisively budget devices.

Interestingly but unsurprisingly, none of these new SoCs support 5G networks. According to Qualcomm, that is kind of the point: 4G LTE is not going anywhere for at least another decade, according to wireless industry analysts and carriers themselves. So, many more LTE-only devices will be hitting the market in the years ahead, and they will need chipsets to actually function like modern computers should. So, these three new offerings are just the first of many non-5G chips that Qualcomm plans to release in the era of 5G connectivity.
