Qualcomm’s new mobile SoC, Snapdragon 775 will replace the 765 and has been leaked almost fullyThe Snapdragon 765, both the standard model and the ‘gaming’ model with the surname G, have managed to take over the majority of conversations in the environment of powerful phones without being the best. On the rung below Qualcomm’s 800 lines, being adopted by a multitude of models in the Android ecosystem, including the very Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 from Google itself.
The Snapdragon 775 will replace the 765 and has been leaked
Given that both processors hit the market when 2019 was closing, in December, it was strange that Qualcomm had not yet taken the step of presenting their replacements, without forgetting the Snapdragon 768 that was launched as an interlude. However, the first leaks of the Snapdragon 775 are already here, and they leave little to the imagination.
As we were saying, the Snapdragon 775 and Snapdragon 775G has been leaked quite aggressively, leaving very little to be discovered in the actual presentation of both. Perhaps what is missing are the performance graphs that Qualcomm itself shows at its events, as what we have on the table here are the technical specifications of two processors that will differ little from each other. As in the case of the Snapdragon 765, the Snapdragon 775G will be X% (still unknown) more powerful than the Snapdragon 775, nothing more.
The leaked data speak of the Snapdragon 775 being built with 5-nanometer technology, although it is not specified whether it has been built by Samsung or TSMC. The cores will be Kryo 600 series and it remains to be known what is its clock frequency and what is the GPU that accompanies the equipment. We do know what memories they will support: LPDDR5 up to 3.2GHz and UFS 3.1.
In charge of the cameras, we will have a Spectra 570 chip that will allow up to three 28MP cameras to operate simultaneously and will be able to record 4K video at 60 frames per second. A curiosity is that it will allow video recording with two cameras operating at the same time, one with a maximum of 64MP and another reaching 20MP (real-time blur supported by hardware), and at 30fps.
In connectivity, we will have 5G, logically at this point, and will allow both sub-6GHz and mmWave, in addition to being able to operate with two SIM cards at the same time. The Snapdragon 775G will offer WiFi 6E and Bluetooth Milan and will incorporate audio chips (here there are differences) WCD9380 and WCD9385. The processors should reach the market in the next few weeks but there is no news yet, so we will keep an eye on them.
