Qualcomm is reportedly working on a new mid-range processor named Snapdragon 775. It will be a chipset aimed at future mid-range smartphones and a direct successor to the Snapdragon 768. The company is yet to make an official announcement about its existence but we have a new leak that details everything that you would be interested in.
The leak is coming from XiaomiMIUI, a Telegram-based tipster, who has shared a bunch of documentation that appears to be taken straight from Qualcomm itself. It reveals that there will be two variants: Snapdragon 775 and Snapdragon 775G. The second variant is simply the one with support for 5G connectivity. It makes sense as the number of 5G-powered mid-range smartphones has started to increase with time.
The Snapdragon 775 is tipped to be a 5nm processor featuring Kryo 6xx CPU cores. It will be compatible with both LPDDR5 (up to 3200MHz) and LPDDR4X (up to 2400MHz) RAMs and support UFS 3.1 Two-Lane HS Gear 4 storage standard. It simply means that users should be experiencing a better multi-tasking experience and faster read/write speeds during tasks like file transfer.
There is Spectra 570 ISP in the camera department. It will be able to support three 28-megapixel cameras at the same time and a combination of 64-megapixel and 20-megapixel at 30fps. It will also be capable of offering 4K video recording at 60fps. In terms of connectivity, it is said to support mmWave 5G, Dual 5G (SA and NSA), LTE Cat 18, 802.11ax, 2x2 MIMO, and WiFi 6E.
As far as the release date is concerned, the leak does not mention anything about it. In a separate report published by XDA, it is claimed that there is not even surety if Snapdragon 775 will actually launch. We will have to wait for some more time to know whether we wil be getting this new processor.
