For the past year, the Snapdragon 765 (and 765G) has been the go-to processor for brands with their mid-range 5G phones. The mid-range 5G processor is due for an upgrade, and reports of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 775 has surfaced, along with some of its alleged key specs.
In a post shared by Xiaomiui’s Telegram channel, one of the notable upgrades of the Snapdragon 775 is its shift to a 5nm process, which is more efficient than the 7nm process used on the Snapdragon 765. The Snapdragon 775 will also have support for LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1–both being exclusive features to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8-series chips.
There’s also a mention of Kryo 600-series cores, though it is not clear what the core configuration will be. However, previously-leaked AnTuTu benchmarks report that the Snapdragon 775G version can score as high as 530000, which is way higher than the Snapdragon 765G’s 320000 score. With those scores, we expect the Snapdragon 775 to use Cortex-A78 cores, though it is possible for it to have a big Cortex-X1 core that’s running at a lower clock speed compared to the one used on the Snapdragon 888.
Like the Snapdragon 888, you can use up to three cameras simultaneously: the Snapdragon 775’s Spectra 570 ISP can handle either three 28-megapixel cameras or a 64-megapixel + 20-megapixel combo functioning at 30FPS. With those upgrades, you also get native support for 4K60 video.
Its integrated 5G modem will have support for Dual 5G, along with mmWave and sub-6Ghz frequencies. There’s also support for WiFi 6e and Bluetooth 5.2 as well, along with LTE Cat. 18 and 4×4 MIMO downlink and 2×2 MIMO uplink for Sub-6 5G.
For audio, the Snapdragon 775 is reportedly getting a WCD9380/WCD9385 audio chip–the latter being a possible needed tech for Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon Sound codec.
There’s no word yet when Qualcomm will make the Snapdragon 775 (and maybe a Snapdragon 775G) official, so stay tuned to the site for the latest updates.
