The chipmaker claims that Snapdragon 768G will bring next-level performance that enables smart, immersive gaming experiences with 5G, sophisticated on-device AI and select Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming features.
Qualcomm product management vice president Kedar Kondap said: "We are uniquely positioned to accelerate 5G commercialisation at scale and Snapdragon 768G is an example of how we're continuing to deliver solutions to address the needs of our OEM customers. Our expanding portfolio has the potential to make 5G accessible to billions of smartphone users around the world."
Snapdragon 768G offers the following performance enhancements over Snapdragon 765G:
Qualcomm Kryo 475 CPU Prime core clock speed up to 2.8 GHz (improved from 2.4 GHz)
Qualcomm Adreno 620 GPU offers up to 15 per cent performance increase
Support for Adreno Updateable GPU Drivers
In addition to these performance enhancements, Snapdragon 768G is designed to deliver better gaming performance, 5G connectivity, and intelligent multi-camera capabilities, while also preserving battery life. Snapdragon 768G is also pin- and software-compatible with Snapdragon 765 and 765G.
Snapdragon 768G offers select Snapdragon Elite Gaming for game extensions and optimisations, smoother gameplay and more enhanced detail and colours with true 10-bit HDR to deliver high quality mobile gaming experiences.
Qualcomm said that is the first 7-series platform to support Adreno Updateable GPU Drivers, giving players control of their GPU driver updates and settings to provide peak display refresh rates.
Combined with a bolstered Adreno 620 GPU for up to 15 percent faster graphics rendering than Snapdragon 765G and support for 120Hz display, users can enjoy better gaming experiences and leading performance per unit power, Qualcomm claims.
The chip aims at bringing 5G multimode connectivity globally like its predecessor, the Snapdragon 768G with the Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF System supports all key regions and frequency bands including 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz, 5G SA and NSA modes, TDD and FDD with Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS), global 5G roaming and support for multi-SIM.
The Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF System is designed to deliver multi-gigabit peak download speeds of up to 3.7 Gbps and upload speeds of up to 1.6 Gbps, ensuring superior coverage for users around the world and support for all-day battery life.
Also under the bonnet is a 5th Generation AI Engine and the X52 5G Modem-RF System which tarts up camera, audio, voice and gaming use. The AI Engine allows things like translation and ultra-smooth AI-based lens filters for social media apps. The low-power Qualcomm Sensing Hub enables devices to be contextually aware of voice commands when using AI voice assistants and can automatically identify music that is playing around users - without excessive battery drain.
