An insider revealed details about the Snapdragon 775G processor
The collection of rumors about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G mobile processor was supplemented by the publication of a reputable insider Roland Quandt. In his Twitter blog, he not only announced the expected release date of the chipmaker's new product, but also revealed technical details about the mobile platform.
According to the source, the 6-nm Snapdragon 775G processor has not yet been introduced, which will replace the Snapdragon 765G model, which is widely used in Android devices of the middle price segment. Its debut is expected to take place in early 2021. According to the informant's report, Qualcomm is already testing the new product with the code number SM7350 as part of a device with 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, a UFS 3.1 drive, and a 120-Hz display, which hints at the high performance of the chip by the standards of its class. It is reported that the Snapdragon 775G will be 40% faster than its predecessor in terms of computing power, and 50 percent faster in terms of integrated graphics, and will surpass the Snapdragon 865 in terms of energy efficiency.
Quandt also mentioned the company's new flagship chip, which will be manufactured using a 5-nm process at Samsung factories, since all TSMC production facilities are reserved by Apple for the release of the A14 Bionic proprietary processor and other components of the new iPhone. In addition to the "super-large" Cortex-X1 core, Snapdragon 875 will feature an integrated 5G modem X60 — this solution will reduce the area occupied by the mobile platform in the smartphone case. In addition, the informant announced the upcoming release of the Snapdragon 875 Plus processor, although he did not name its characteristics — it is expected that the "overclocked" chip will be presented in July 2021.
Qualcomm representatives did not comment on the information published by the insider.
