Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon 768G chip will make its debut alongside the Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition on May 11th
With MediaTek unveiling two new SoC is the matter of a week, it is hardly surprising that Qualcomm followed suit. Although the company is yet to acknowledge it, the grapevine has been abuzz with mentions of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 768 SoC. The chip will reportedly make its debut in the upcoming Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition.
The Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition popped up on Chinese retailed JD.com's website, and a leaker on Twitter further elaborated on some of the chip's specifications. For starters, it comes with two high-performance cores Cortex A-76 cores and six power-efficient Cortex A-55 cores. The high-performance cores are clocked at 2.8GHz and 2.4 GHz, respectively, while the remaining cores are set to 1.8GHz. It is a tad faster than the Snapdragon 765G, which has its A-76 cores at 2.4GHz and 2.2GHz. Like its predecessor, it, too, has an integrated 5G model, indicating that it is intended for mid-range 5G offerings. Both chips run the same Adreno 620 GPU, but the one in the Snapdragon 768G is clocked at 750MHz instead of 625MHz. That's all we know about the chip for now, as Qualcomm is yet to unveil it officially.
It'll be interesting to see how the Snapdragon 768G fares against MediaTek's Dimensity 800. While Qualcomm has historically taken MediaTek to the cleaners in synthetic benchmarks, the Taiwanese chipmaker seems to have caught up, as exhibited by the Helio G90T's performance in the Redmi Note 8 Pro. We should know more about the Snapdragon 768G and the Redmi K30 Speed Edition on its release date of 11th May.
