Snapdragon 720 appeared to Fill in Gap between Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 730
The Qualcomm is the company which powers most of the flagship and mid-range smartphones by its top-notch processors. In February 2018, the manufacturer revealed that it is creating an entirely new set of chipset’s dubbed –Snapdragon 700 series to offer flagship like performance in mid-range devices with features like custom DSPs and the Kryo architecture and that too at an affordable price.
The first processor under the 700 series is the Snapdragon 710 which was announced in May and according to a tipster, the Snapdragon 720 is the next in the upcoming series. Interestingly, the previous report on the Snapdragon 710 also mentioned the Snapdragon 730, claiming that it will be manufactured using the Samsung 8nm LPP process (10nm upgrade), integrating two Kryo 4xx 2.3GHz, six Kryo 4xx 1.8 GHz CPU core and specially equipped with NPU 120 unit.
At this point, no technical Specifications of the processor are known but going by the Snapdragon 710 way, which is created using Samsung’s 10nm LPE process and features a six Kryo 360 Silver cores operating at 1.70GHz and two Kryo 360 Gold cores operating at 2.20GHz coupled Adreno 616 GPU, along with the Qualcomm’s X15 LTE chipset and providing support for AR and AI. The Snapdragon 720 might be made on the same 10nm FinFET LPE architecture with higher clock speeds to provide a better performance than the Snapdragon 710.

Additionally, It is said that the key will be added to the NPU neural network computing unit (similar to Huawei Kirin 970), which is dedicated to AI acceleration. However, nothing is official yet, so we would like to take this information with a pinch of salt.
