Alongside the flagship chipset Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm also introduced the two versions of the mid-flagship range chipsets Snapdragon 765 and 765G. Snapdragon 865 and 765 chipsets are the first Snapdragon chipsets to come with 5G connectivity. Unlike its flagship counterpart that relies on an external X55 5G modem to connect to 5G networks, the SD765 and 765G chipset comes with an integrated 5G modem.
The Snapdragon 765G SoC is 7nm octa-core processor that includes one Kryo 475 Prime (Cortex-A76) CPU working at 2.4GHz, one Kryo 475 Gold (Cortex-A76) CPU clocking at 2.2GHz and six Kryo 475 Silver (Cortex-A55) working at 1.8GHz. On the SD765, the Kryo 475 Prime (Cortex-A76) CPU clocks at 2.3GHz and rest of its CPU cores are same as SD765G.
Snapdragon admirers are disappointed to see Qualcomm still prefers using Cortex-A76 based CPU cores on SD765 and SD765G. In comparison, the mid-range Exynos 980 from Samsung comes with Cortex-A77 cores.
For graphics, the SD765 and SD765G come with Adreno 620 GPU that promises a 38 percent improved performance than its predecessor Adreno 618 GPU that came with Snapdragon 730 last year. Among the two SD765G would offer a better gaming experience than the SD765.
The integrated X52 modem enables theoretical maximum download speeds of 1.2Gbps on 4G, and 3.7Gbps on 5G, with uplinks going to 210Mbps and 1.6Gbps, respectively. It supports both sub-6 GHz and mmWave 5G networks.
The chipset will be launched on smartphone in the first quarter of 2020.
