Qualcomm wastes no time and thinks about updating last year's Snapdragon 765G chip with a more powerful model: in these hours it reveals Snapdragon 768G, a follow-up that seems focused on what many players require most: Android terminals with better performance. The 2.8 GHz Kryo 475 CPU is estimated to work about 15 percent faster than the previous 765G's 2.4 GHz counterpart, while the Adreno 620 graphics promises a similar performance increase, including support for upgraded screens up to 120Hz at 1080p.
The new chip will be the first Snapdragon in the 700 series to support upgradeable GPU drivers, allowing you to optimize visual performance almost as you would with a gaming PC. The speed of the network is also important. The 768G processor is part of Qualcomm's second wave with 5G connectivity support, and it means global 5G with even sub-6GHz technology for "all key regions". In this way users can expect (theoretical) speeds of up to 3.7 Gbps in download and 1.6 Gbps in upload.
You won't have to wait long to see it working on new smartphones. In particular, Redmi's K30 5G Racing Edition will be the first phone to use the new Qualcomm 768G, but there is still no news on other devices that will adopt this SoC. However, this new chip could actually open the door to several gaming-oriented medium-high end Android smartphones, without having to pay the sums required instead by the devices that currently mount the Snapdragon 865.
