Leaked Qualcomm Snapdragon 775 and Snapdragon 775G specifications showcase similarities with the Snapdragon 888
Almost six months have passed since Roland Quandt published information about the Snapdragon 775G, during which Qualcomm has released the Snapdragon 888. According to Quandt, Qualcomm had been testing the Snapdragon 775G with 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 256 GB of UFS 3.1 flash storage and a 120 Hz display. In a preceding tweet, Quandt added that Qualcomm had codenamed the Snapdragon 775G 'Cedros' and had assigned it the model number SM7350. Subsequently, Digital Chat Station asserted that the Snapdragon 775G could almost match the Snapdragon 865 for performance in AnTuTu.
Now, Xiaomi & MIUI News claims to have received high-level documentation about Qualcomm's next upper-midrange SoC. While the Telegram channel did not provide a source for the information published, Mishaal Rahman and XDA Developers claim that their source has validated the documents shown below.
According to the documents, Qualcomm has based the Snapdragon 775G on a 5 nm process, not a 6 nm one as was previously expected. Additionally, the Snapdragon 775G is expected to receive a Kryo 6xx CPU, although probably not the Kryo 680 CPU that the Snapdragon 888 has. However, the Snapdragon 775G will support up to LPDDR5-3200 RAM, as the Snapdragon 888 does.
An Adreno 6xx GPU should be on board too, but this should come as no surprise since the Snapdragon 765G has an Adreno 620 and the Snapdragon 888 an Adreno 660. Camera details can be found below too, including that the 5 nm chipset will have a Spectra 570 Image Signal Processor (ISP). By contrast, the Snapdragon 888 has a Spectra 580 and the Snapdragon 765G a Spectra 365. Hence, it would seem likely that the Snapdragon 775G's ISP will be closer in performance to that of the Snapdragon 888 than the Snapdragon 765G.
It is unclear when Qualcomm will announce the Snapdragon 775G, nor the Snapdragon 775 for that matter. We would not be surprised if the SoC made its way into many midrange handsets this year though, including the Pixel 5a or a future Nokia smartphone. Regardless, we could see a lot more midrange smartphones this year with high-refresh-rate displays, which would be welcome.
