The first phones with the processor Snapdragon 765 of Qualcomm have just started appearing on the market but that does not stop the company from announcing an upgraded version today called Snapdragon 768G.
Initial Snapdragon 765G was announced in December 2019, alongside the standard 765 and the flagship 865. The two 765 processors were notable as its first chipset Qualcomm which has built-in 5G modems. (The Snapdragon 865, while it includes 5G by default, requires a separate cellular modem.)
The main difference between the regular 765 and 765G was the addition of a GPU Qualcomm Adreno 620, which the company promised to offer up to 20% improved performance over the standard 765. The Qualcomm reports that it has been able to improve this GPU performance by an additional 15% to 768G, in addition to improving clock speed in CPU up to 2,8GHz from 2,4GHz.
THE new Snapdragon 768G processor offers 5G and better performance in CPU and GPU compared to its predecessor. It will have a built-in modem Snapdragon X52 with support for both mmWave and 6G sub-5GHz, as well as compatibility with all 5G networks.
Like the original 765G, the 768G is primarily intended for gaming-oriented devices. It will make its debut in the Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition, which was also announced today.
