Other features of the processor include fourth generation Qualcomm AI engine, Wi-Fi 6 ready modem, support for Apt-X adaptive codec and more. As mentioned above, it is possible the upcoming Xiaomi smartphone may also sport a Snapdragon 730G. Talking about the Snapdragon 730G, there is not much difference between the Snapdragon 730 and the Snapdragon 730G.

The Snapdragon 730G is just more optimized for gaming and sports snapdragon elite gaming features including 15 percent more GPU rendering, Wi-Fi latency monitor, and a jank reducer to improve the smoothness while gaming. Other minor differences include support for HDR with 10-bit color depth, Rec 2020 color gamut, 1 billion shades of colors and 960fps slow-motion video recording at 720p. We are not sure if this is the same device that was spotted online about two weeks back.

To recap, recent rumors indicate that Xiaomi has been working on a Redmi-branded device with the pop-up selfie camera, Snapdragon 730 SoC with 4,000mAh battery with the triple camera setup. The triple camera setup sports a primary 48-megapixel sensor, a secondary 8-megapixel sensor possible for depth mapping and the third sensor with a 13-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens.
