When it comes to Snapdragon processors, the majority of brands have been equipping their phones with Snapdragon 700-series processors since they are a good balance between the 800-series’ performance and 600-series’ affordability. While the Snapdragon 765G has been the go-to processor of choice for premium mid-range 5G smartphones, Qualcomm is adding an affordable alternative with the Snapdragon 750G.
- Dual-mode 5G. Going for the more obvious, the Snapdragon 750G comes with the same X52 modem found on the Snapdragon 765G, giving it support for both sub-6Ghz and mmWave 5G bands. This makes the Snapdragon 750G the most affordable processor with global 5G support since the cheaper Snapdragon 690 only supports sub-6Ghz.
- New Kryo cores. While the clock speed of the Snapdragon 750G’s performance cores is almost the same with the Snapdragon 730G at 2.21Ghz, the former uses newer Kryo 570 cores, which claim to be 20% better than the latter’s Kryo 470 cores.
- Newer Adreno GPU. The Snapdragon 750G’s Adreno 619 GPU claims to offer 10% better performance than the Adreno 618 found on the Snapdragon 730G. The new GPU brings in native support for 120hz displays at Full HD+.
- New AI tricks. AI is almost always an important aspect, and the Snapdragon 750G’s newest feature is Aqstic Echo Cancellation and Noise Suppression (ECNS) technology. This feature claims to filter out noise even with just a single microphone.
Which phone(s) will be the first to use the Snapdragon 750G?
The processor is expected to be available to smartphones by the end of the year, with Xiaomi confirming to be one of the first brands to use the Snapdragon 750G. Aside from Xiaomi, a source code from the recently-announced Galaxy A42 5G reveals that it will be using the Snapdragon 750G processor as well.
