Yesterday, Qualcomm unveiled its latest gaming-centric mid-range chipset — the Snapdragon 732G. Going by the numbers, it seems like it’s not a significant upgrade when compared to 730G and even the 720G. If history is any indication, we may be looking at a refresh instead. But then again, we can’t say unless we compare them side-by-side. With that in mind, let’s see if the SD 732G is even worth purchasing.

If we’re going to rely on the spec sheet table, there’s not a single drastic improvement between the three. Though the 720G appears to be the oldest model, it’s actually the 730G. There’s a slight improvement in CPU clock speed, but that’s at the expense of slightly worse camera ISP. Performance-wise, there’s really nothing to compare here.

With the introduction of 732G, the story is similar. Though its clock speed is a little higher than the rest, it’s the GPU that gets the nod. According to Qualcomm, Adreno 618 is up to 15% faster. Efficiency is another area to look out for as the company boasts longer playing time, even with the boosted GPU. Lastly, the 4th-gen AI Engine now boasts up to 3.6 TOPS for realistic gameplay.

Again, Qualcomm loves to refresh its chipsets these days. We’ve seen it with their flagship 800 Series, and we just saw it here in the mid-range segment. POCO X3 is the first upcoming phone that’ll sport the latest 732G SoC. If you’re expecting leaps in performance compared to its predecessor and competition, you may be disappointed. On the flip side, 720G and 730G-based phones will become more affordable.
