If you notice any processor, The main term mentioned is “nm.” In mobiles, you can see 7nm, 10nm chipsets. The low value means It is greatly efficient in terms of battery usage. When it is coming to Kenmore devices like mobiles, battery utilization is an important factor. But companies’ ways focus this kind of optimizations only on flagship mobiles. But now, Upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 775 will be a 5nm Upper Mid-Range Processor. Snapdragon processor starts with “8” considered as flagship mobiles. “7” series are upper mid-range and will be used in $300 range mobiles.
Leaked specs can be changed when the product is about to launch officially. But, in some cases, the leaked specs are still exactly what you’d see when the product launches. After Snapdragon 765 and 765G, it was certain that Qualcomm would release another mid-range SoC, and it seems they’re already working on that. The chances are that we’d see a Snapdragon 775 chip launch very soon, and here are all the leaked specifications so far.
Upper Mid-Range Qualcomm Snapdragon 775
Many people (most people using Android smartphones) prefer devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon chips to those powered by MediaTek MTK chip. This is clearly because Snapdragon processors are typically faster and more efficient than other processors you may get on a smartphone.
On Qualcomm’s path, the company has, so far, released series of mid-range SoC options to smartphone OEMs, including low-budget processors that power Android Go devices. Qualcomm also has high-end SoCs – the Snapdragon 8xx series – for premium devices. Mostly, any device with Snapdragon 8xx process is priced above $700. Qualcomm offers a wide portfolio of SoCs, comprising mid-range and high-end processors.
Currently, it appears like Qualcomm is about to launch a successor to the Snapdragon 765 series; it would be the Snapdragon 775 series, which would comprise Snapdragon 775 and 775G.
However, Qualcomm has earlier this year announced its flagship chipset for 2021 official, the Snapdragon 888 chip. According to leaked specifications, Qualcomm may be releasing a new SoC to its premium mid-range Snapdragon 7xx series in a few weeks. Everyone currently believes the alleged upcoming processor would be called Snapdragon 775; however, there’s no sure proof that Qualcomm will call it 775; it could be 788, who knows?.
Leaked Qualcomm Snapdragon 775 Specs
A leaked image from an internal Qualcomm document (leaked from a Telegram channel, XiaomiUI) showed a new Qualcomm SM7350 SoC, which is believed to launch a Snapdragon 775. The documents showed a high-level feature comparison of 775 with 765 and showed other details like the application map.
Different sources have confirmed the leaked document to be valid; however, the sources also hint that the document is old – released a long time ago – hence, there is the possibility that Qualcomm may have changed most details in the document. Regardless, below are the leaked specs for the alleged Snapdragon 775 SoC, as spotted in the document.
This new SoC will be fabricated with a 5nm process – just as seen in the 888 – and it would come with a new Kryo 6-series CPU core setup. The chip would also support 3200MHz LPDDR5, 2400MHz LPDDR4X RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage. With Spectra 570 ISP, the 775 processor may support up to three 28MP camera sensors working simultaneously and 4K 60fps video recording.
LTE Cat 18 Connectivity options and support for mmWave 5G. We also hope to get 802.11ax Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi 6E, 2×2 MIMO, and 256 QAM. Sources say the SoC will support WCD9380 and WCD9385 audio chips.
The fact is, at the end of the day, All you need is better battery backup. Low-value nm chips always make better results. So, Instead of focusing on fancy features, Chipset manufacturers focus on what is important for users. MediaTek surpassed Snapdragon in 5G processor sales in Q3,2020. Though MediaTek is making competition with Snapdragon after 5G is released, Snapdragon is still a leading chipset manufacturer in the mobile industry. The Snapdragon 775 processor will outperform its predecessor; however, Qualcomm has not made any official statement regarding this chip. In the meantime, and looking at the leaked specs, what do you think of this chip? Did you feel the mobile manufacturers utilize the full power of the new processor? Share your thoughts.
