The Snapdragon 750G CPU consists of two high-performance Kryo 570 (Cortex-A77) cores running at up to 2.2 GHz, and six energy-efficient Cortex - A55 cores with a maximum frequency of 1.8 GHz. The Adreno 619 video accelerator is responsible for graphics processing. According to Qualcomm, the new chip is 30% more powerful than the Snapdragon 730G in terms of CPU and 10% more powerful than the GPU.

Snapdragon 750G uses the Snapdragon X52 modem, as in the Snapdragon 765G, with support for fifth-generation networks in the millimeter (mmWave) range and ranges up to 6 GHz, as well as TDD and FDD. This means that the chipset supports fifth-generation networks around the world with the ability to transfer data at speeds up to 3.7 Gbit/s.

The new processor supports screens with Full HD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz or QHD+ at 60 Hz. Other features of the chip include the ability to update graphics drivers via Google Play, support for Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6, Qualcomm TrueWireless, aptX Adaptive, and Quick Charge 4+.

The first device based on the Snapdragon 750G will be the Xiaomi smartphone, which is scheduled for release before the end of this year. More devices are expected in 2021.
