Not even a year after the Snapdragon 765 G, Qualcomm launched its predecessor’s improved version, the Snapdragon 768G 5G.
It has improved GPU performance and a CPU power of 20 percent higher than the previous model. There are also reports that the forthcoming Google Pixel 5 may be the first to have this highly powered processor in operation.
A recent report of The Verge explained that this year it is scheduled to announce another Qualcomm product. It looks like the pandemic, despite its still fresh release of last year’s Snapdragon 765 G, will not be a problem for the firm.
The original Snapdragon 765 G, along with the regular Snapdragon 765 and the flagship Snapdragon 865 was launched in December 2019. Those were Qualcomm’s first processors to deliver the new smartphone phenomenon, 5G tech.
Despite its fame, Qualcomm advances another processor on its name called Snapdragon 768G.
Snapdragon 768G vs. Snapdragon 765G
The main difference between the previous one and its predecessor is that the successor is ramping up higher performance for smartphones out there. Not only that but it also offers gamers who use upper mid-range phones a more sophisticated touch.
Snapdragon 768G also uses 5G technology. Apart from that, the processor adds advanced Qualcomm Adreno 620 GPU which promises an output 20 percent higher than its predecessor. GPU is not the only one to have the latest processor upgraded to.
Also the tech Processor has an increased clock speed of 15 percent which is 2.8GHz Kryo 475 Processor compared to the original 2.4GHz CPU.
Similarly, 768 G also features an integrated Snapdragon X52 modem with mmWave and sub-6GHz 5 G support, as well as compatibility with both standalone and non-standalone 5 G networks.
“We are in a unique position to speed up 5G marketing on a scale and Snapdragon 768G is an example of how we continue to offer solutions to our OEM customers’ needs,” said Kedar Kondap, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
“Our expanding portfolio has the potential to make 5G accessible to billions of smartphone users around the world.”
Google Pixel 5, first to have Snapdragon 768G 5G?
Though Qualcomm has just released the new processor, few industry names have already claimed ownership of the technology.
According to Android Central the Xiaomi Redmi K30 5 G Racing Edition with Snapdragon 768 is expected to be the first commercially available unit. Reports, however, do not tell when it will appear on the market in the US.
The forthcoming Google Pixel 5 makes the same assertion as well. Rumors have spread that in fall the device will arrive with the 768G. But nothing’s for sure yet.
