Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G launched with new Adreno 619 GPU, Kryo 570 cores, and more
It's been a while since we've seen Qualcomm release a 5G-ready SoC. MediaTek has released a slew of Dimensity chips this year, and it is only a matter of time before Qualcomm reciprocated. Qualcomm has now unveiled its newest offering, the Snapdragon 750G.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G consists of two ARM Kryo 570 Gold (Cortex-A77 derivative) and six Cortex-A55-based efficiency cores. They are clocked at 2.2GHz and 1.8GHz, respectively. It gets a slightly newer Adreno 619 GPU, which is up to 10% faster than Adreno 618. Some of the other features include support for Qualcomm's fifth-generation AI Engine and Snapdragon Elite Gaming features.
On the 5G side of things, the Snapdragon 750G's X52 modem supports both mmwave and sub-6GHz networks (standalone and non-standalone) with a maximum theoretical throughput of up to 3.7Gb/s. Many OEMs choose not to support mmwave technology due to its complications, and it's good to see Qualcomm single-handedly include it in their hardware. Other features include global multi-SIM compatibility, TSS, FDD, and more.
Lastly, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G supports up to 120Hz FHD+ displays. It can record 4K HDR videos at 30 fps and 720p content at 240 fps. The chip also supports 10-bit color depth for immersive visual experiences. A variety of camera configurations are supported, including a single 192MP camera, one 48MP sensor with MFNR (multi-frame noise reduction), and two 32MP cameras with zero shutter lag (ZSL). Some of the Snapdragon 750G's other features include support for Bluetooth 5.1, Quick Charge 4+, and Wi-Fi 6.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G is expected to be unveiled alongside a Xiaomi smartphone in the coming weeks. It'll be interesting to see how the chip fares against equally-specced MediaTek offerings like the Dimensity 820U.
