It was known that a new 5G SoC, the Snapdragon 768G, would be announced today (May 11, 2020) due to the fact the first device to rock it has also been launched. Now, its maker Qualcomm has released more details on it and how it improves on its predecessor, the 765G.

Xiaomi has unleashed the Redmi K30 Extreme (or 'Racing') Edition today (May 11, 2020). It stands out among its series as the only phone to rock the brand-new Snapdragon 768G chipset. Qualcomm claims that it confers "worldwide 5G" on its new vehicle, enabling it to access a wide range of modes and bands, TDD and FDD with Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS), mmWave, sub-6 GHz and SA/NSA included.

The 768G, like its immediate forerunner the 765G, has a Kryo 475 CPU; however, the faster ARM Cortex-A76 cores here are clocked at 2.8GHz rather than 2.4GHz in the "original". Similarly, its Adreno 620 GPU has been tuned for enhancements of 15% compared to its predecessor, whereas the one in the 765G has only 10% such improvements. This GPU also renders "up to 15% faster" compared to that of the 765G.

These graphics are also boosted with a Qualcomm Hexagon Processor and a 5th-gen AI Engine. It also has Snapdragon's Elite Gaming feature, and can support displays with refresh rates of up to 120 hertz (Hz). The 768G is also generally rated for up to 64MP cameras.
