We have seen that the smartphone industry has been taking a hit due to the fact that there is a lockdown all over the world and people are not buying smartphones as much as they would want to be. It is already known that smartphone launches have taken place but there is no way for them to be sold in some parts of the world since services have been put on hold. Talking about smartphones, we know that processors play a big role and Qualcomm is the major company launching Snapdragon chipset for smartphones every year.
It is now known that Qualcomm has launched a new smartphone chipset which is not the upgrade to its flagship chip which is the Snapdragon 865 5G. However, it is not less than a semi-flagship chip because it is an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 765G processor. According to the announcement from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 768G will be available for upper mid-range smartphones starting from the second quarter of this year. It is also seen that the G in this processor stands for gaming which means these processors are tuned to give better gaming performance.
Other specifications of the Snapdragon processor.
Since Snapdragon 768G is also a 5G-ready processor, the highlighting feature it has is that we get “integrated Snapdragon X52 modem with support for both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G as well as compatibility with both standalone and non-standalone 5G networks”. Qualcomm also announced that the first smartphone we will see this processor on is the Redmi K30 5G Racing edition.
The difference between last year’s Snapdragon 765G and the 768G is the addition of a “Qualcomm Adreno 620 GPU, which the company promised would offer up to 20 percent” as compared to its predecessor. This means we are likely to see a small boost in the gaming performance and it is said to have better thermals as well.
