A new listing in Geekbench 5's database shows benchmark results for what may be the Snapdragon 765. The SoC in the listing looks similar to the CPU of the upcoming Oppo Reno 3 Pro, which will use the 765. If these listings are legitimately the Snapdragon 765, they place the chip just behind 2018's Snapdragon 845.

The upcoming Snapdragon 765 is likely to be a mainstay in the mid-range sector when it debuts next year. Now, we may know what to expect from those midrangers.

Android Next noticed a peculiar listing on Geekbench’s benchmark database that looks like an Xperia phone running what appears to be the Snapdragon 765. The device, which is only identified as “K8220,” bears a numbering scheme similar to other Sony Xperia devices. The CPU in question is a Qualcomm 8-core chip clocked at 1.8 GHz. The chip looks similar to the one listed in the Oppo Reno 3 Pro, which has been confirmed to run the Snapdragon 765.

If this is indeed the upcoming mid-range chip from Qualcomm, it’s a decent showing. The SoC managed a single-core score of 465 and a multi-core score of 1757, putting it just behind one of Qualcomm’s previous flagship SoCs, the Snapdragon 845.

Qualcomm developer the Snapdragon 765 with the intent of bringing a 5G-compatible chip to the masses. The 765 is Qualcomm’s more affordable alternative to the Snapdragon 865, which will grace flagship handsets next year. However, considering the potential performance of the Snapdragon 765, midrange phone users may have more than 5G to brag about.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
