Qualcomm finally introduced its 2020 flagships with 5G connectivity: the Snapdragon 865, 765 and 765G. The first option reaches the premium sector, while the Snapdragon-700 series is presented as the most affordable 5G option.
Announcement of other products including new audio product expected
The three pillars that drove the development of the Snapdragon 865 were: Artificial Intelligence, Camera Power, and Gamer Experience. It has a Kryo 585 CPU and Adreno 650 GPU. For the GPU, Qualcomm promises a 25% improvement in graphics rendering and 35% more efficiency, while the CPU should also bring a 25% increase in performance.
Another highlight is the 15 trillion operations per second (TOPS) that the processor can perform. This means, according to the company, that it is 2x better than its predecessors, the Snapdragon 855, and 3x better than its competitors.
And of course we have the second generation Snapdragon X55 5G RF modem system, the world's most advanced 5G platform, according to Qualcomm. The modem is compatible with LTE, 2G and 3G networks and supports the mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. As mentioned at the beginning of the Snapdragon Summit – Day 1 broadcast, 5G is designed to work on the existing spectrum and, unlike what was imagined at the beginning of the 5G discussions, will coexist with previous standards.
Moving on to imaging, Qualcomm says we will make significant progress with the Spectra 480 ISP and Spectra + 5th Gen AI Engine. The Snapdragon 865 can support sensors up to 200MP and handle a flow rate of up to 2 gigapixels (GP) per second. This indicates that we can expect some resolution news soon (4K videos with 64MP image captures or 8K recordings at 30 frames per second, for example), as well as new IA features for image editing and the like.
During the second day of the Snapdragon Summit, we also learned that with the Snapdragon 865, any device can rely on Dolby Vision technology for video capture.
Snapdragon 865 even supports:
- Wi-Fi 6 (Qualcomm FastConnect 6800 Mobile Connectivity),
- LPDDR5 Memory (2750MHZ);
- Bluetooth 5.1; and
- True Wireless Stereo (TWS).
In this context, it promises to bring "unmatched" performance jumps and connectivity to next-generation smartphones.
Finally, some of the highlights that may catch gamers' attention are the new tools Snapdragon 865 offers, such as Game Smoother, Adaptive Game Performance Engine and Adreno HDR Fast Blend, and the fact that we will support it with it. to play on 144Hz mobile displays.
Also new is that the processor is bringing support for upgradable gpu drivers.
According to the company, 450 million of these arrive by 2021
Snapdragon 765 and 765G
Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G are the hope of more affordable 5G smartphones next year. They bring the integrated 5G connectivity, advanced Artificial Intelligence processing and select functions of Snapdragon Elite Gaming. The "G" of "Gaming" in the second mentioned SoC makes it clear that new options for gamers will be coming soon, and Qualcomm also says that with them, features of the desktop experience will be present in future phones. Qualcomm says its new Snapdragon-700 series chips have specifications that don't even exist on premium chipsets from other companies.
