Qualcomm has already made its flagship chipset for 2021 official, we’re talking about the Snapdragon 888. However, we still haven’t seen a successor to its premium midrange line in the 7 series, and the Snapdragon 765 is getting kind of old.
Apparently it won’t be long now, though, as the company has been rumored to introduce the new SoC at some point before the end of this month. We’re assuming this will be called Snapdragon 775, although, who knows – maybe it’s going to end up as the 788?
Anyway, some details about it have leaked today, and these are from an internal presentation. Other sources claim that the data is accurate, but old, so some things may have changed.
The most important detail, however, is omitted. We’re talking about the CPU core arrangement and clocks. All we know is that they will be Kryo 6xx cores, but that could mean anything. What was mentioned in the slides is that this will be fabbed on a 5nm process like the 888, and will support 3200MHz LPDDR5 and 2400MHz LPDDR4X RAM, as well as UFS 3.1 Two-Lane HS Gear 4.
Moving on, the Spectra 570 ISP has support for 4K60 video recording, and three 28MP sensors working at the same time, as well as 64+20MP at 30fps. Connectivity-wise, we’re looking at Wi-Fi 6E with 2×2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.2 (codenamed Milan), LTE Cat.18, Dual 5G, mmWave 5G, SA and NSA support, VoNR and NR CA, supporting 4×4 MIMO on the downlink and 2×2 MIMO on the uplink for Sub-6 5G. Sub-6 will work with FDD under 3 GHz and TDD in bands n77, n78, and n79. The Snapdragon 775 will also have the WCD9380/WCD9385 audio chip.
According to some previously leaked AnTuTu scores, the 775 should perform much better than its predecessor, and all of these specs are rather important upgrades.
