This chip will soon be in most Android phones for more than $ 1,000 next year, and obviously the upgrades it brings will make anyone crave. But why should you be so excited about the upcoming mid-range chips from Qualcomm?
When Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 865 at a flashy Hawaii beach hotel in 2019, it was “escorted” by a second chip – the Snapdragon 765 (and 765G).
Initially, this mid-range chip was not as sought after by the tech world as its higher-end brother. But a year later, the Snapdragon 765 proved it to be the most important chip of 2020 as it both showed outstanding performance and helped bring 5G to cheaper phones.
When the Snapdragon 888 came out, we didn’t hear about an update for 765 or a slightly faster 768 – if it did, it could be called the 777, or 775 – and that’s a pity. . Some rumors suggest that the 777 will launch in early 2021, probably because Qualcomm has realized that such an important chip deserves a separate stage, rather than acting as a paving for someone else. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to see this chip.
If you look back, you will see that the chip present in many of the cheap and mid-range devices loved last year is none other than the Snapdragon 765. It is the “heart” of the Moto G 5G Plus $ 400 and Google’s flagship Pixel 5. It also lags behind LG Velvet, OnePlus Nord and many other devices. If a phone uses 765, the likelihood that it will impress consumers is very high.
Not only is the Snapdragon 765 the perfect combination of fast performance and cutting edge graphics for smoother gaming, it also brings 5G to a wide range of low-cost phones. In the context of worldwide 5G networks being deployed and expanded, it is great to have a wide range of devices supporting this new network technology at low prices that are affordable for many people.
Hence, the upgrade to the 765 is sure to get a lot of expectation, and should be found for well-priced, mid-range phones of 2021. We have seen a slight update to the 765 which is 768. , was announced in May. However, this is a very modest update and has not appeared in many phones on the market.
Of course, the Snapdragon 888 has the qualities that make it worthy of the spotlight at Qualcomm’s Tech Summit. It is the company’s first flagship chipset to feature a 5G modem, drastically improved in both CPU and GPU speeds, and more focused on AI and security. The first phones with Snapdragon 888 chip are expected to hit shelves in early 2021.
