Qualcomm has announced a new Snapdragon chipset in the upper 700 mid-range series. The new model, Snapdragon 750G, wants to offer capabilities we currently encounter on premium devices, such as support for high-speed 5G connectivity and AI functions, on more models. accessible. It’s basically an improved 5G version of the Snapdragon 730G chipset that we often encounter on mid-range gaming-oriented devices.
Snapdragon 750G promises 5G connectivity at a lower price
The new Snapdragon 750G benefits from an internal octa-core configuration, which uses two high-performance cores, Cortex-A77 at 2.2 GHz, along with six efficient Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8 GHz. This model benefits from an Adreno 619 GPU, somehow positioned between the Snapdragon 732 and the Snapdragon 765 and integrates a Neural Tensor Accelerator processor and a Hexagon 694 image processor.
In terms of photo and video capabilities, Snapdragon 750G provides support for 36 megapixel cameras in “single” format and 16 megapixels in dual format for “zero lag” photos, but also for cameras with a maximum of 192 MP for post-processed photos.
The 5G modem is the same on the Snapdragon 765
However, the 5G modem is as efficient as the one on the Snapdragon 765. We are talking about the same Snapdragon X52 model, which ensures 5G and LTE connectivity. 5G download speeds can reach 3,700 Mbps, while 4G download speeds can reach 1,200 Mbps. This chip can be configured with both sub-6 GHz and high-speed mmWave antennas.
The performance offered should be 20% higher on the CPU side than the Snapdragon 730G and 10% higher on the GPU side, with the advantage that there is 5G connectivity. Charging should also be faster, as this chip is compatible with Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 4.0+ technology.
The first models equipped with Snapdragon 765 should start appearing on the market before the end of the year.
