Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are now seen in almost every other android smartphone and are easily one of the leading chipset manufacturers worldwide. The most popular line for Snapdragon is the 800 series line, in which currently the Snapdragon 855 Plus sits at the top as the best. Well, most people are expecting to see the new Snapdragon 865 soon, as many are speculating that we will see a 5nm build here, which is just insane. However, despite the 865’s hype, a 700 series processor has also made its way as one of the most anticipated processors for smartphones, and that is the upcoming successor to the 730G, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 735. Here, we will talk about the best upcoming Snapdragon 735 Phone that will arrive with 5G connectivity at an affordable price.
Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 735 SoC with 5G modem
The most significant upgrade for the 735 over the 730G is already out that it will involve a 7nm manufacturing process. The smaller size means more powerful but more efficient at the same time. This will take on the likes of the Kirin 810, which is considered to be another bang for buck mid-ranger in terms of mobile processing. Now for the hardware, we can expect two Cortex A76 cores for high performance, one clocked at 2.36 GHz and the other clocked at 2.32 GHz while the remaining six cores will be Cortex-A55 clocked at 1.73 GHz for low power usage. As for the GPU, we will see the new Adreno 620, which will probably be a small update over the 618 found in the Snapdragon 730 and 730G.
Both the Kirin 810 and Snapdragon 735 has two Cortex A76 as performance cores but the clock speed of the Snapdragon 735 Cortex A76 cores are much higher than the ones on the Kirin 810. So the 735 will provide a better performance, but will it also be better in the graphics department? Sadly no as the GPU on the Kirin 810 still seems like a better performer than the Adreno 620 we will see on the 735.
Back in IFA 2019, Qualcomm made speculations that the upcoming 600 and 700 series processors will have options for 5G connectivity. That means we will finally be able to see 5G enabled phone at an affordable price later in the near future. So is the 735 the first 700 series 5G chip? We don’t know anything about it as of now and just like everyone else, we also have to wait for the official launch of the Snapdragon 735 to see if that’s the case.

Redmi K30 5G the successor of Redmi K20 doesn’t have many leaks regarding its specs and features. Although some key things are revealed including 5G support and Dual Punch-Hole display.
Also, Redmi’s General Manger already confirmed that they will not include pop-up selfie camera this time. If the rumours are true this will be the first Redmi phone to have 5G support. And not only 5G support with dual 5G support. But the pricing of the Redmi K30 might not be as competitive as Redmi K20 due to 5G support. The phone might be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 735 processor.
