Yesterday we saw the listing of Redmi K30 Speed Edition on the JD website and the processor was listed as Snapdragon 768G. So, we were sure that Qualcomm would announce the new processor pretty soon.
Sooner than expected, here comes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G. The company officially announced the processor today and let’s take a look at it.
The Snapdragon 768G is the predecessor of the earlier launched Snapdragon 765G. SD 765 was launched in December last year alongside the Snapdragon 865.
As per Qualcomm, the newly introduced processor comes with some performance improvements and better speeds.
Snapdragon 768G is built on the same 7nm process and comes with the latest Adreno 620 GPU. Snapdragon also claims that the new Adreno GPU is at least 15% better in terms of performance when compared with Adreno 620 on Snapdragon 765G.
For better performance speed and increased efficiency, the Kryo 475 cores in the Snapdragon 768G is clocked at 2.8Gz compared to the 2.4GHz in Snapdragon 765G. It gives another 15% performance improvement and CPU performance for the new chip.
The same integrated 5G modem X52 is used in the Snapdragon 768G processor and will support both mmWave and sub-6GHz networks.
The Snapdragon 768G also comes with support for up to 120Hz refresh rate. To be more precise, it supports 60Hz for QHD+ and 120Hz for FHD+ displays. Both SD 765G and SD 768G supports HDR10 and HDR10+ along with 10-bit color depth. The snapdragon 765G on the other hand only supports up to 60Hz refresh rate.
If the JD website listing is to be believed then the Redmi K30 Speed Edition is going to be the first smartphone to come with the new Snapdragon 768G. As the name itself suggests, K30 Speed Edition should come with some sort of speed improvements when compared with the Redmi K30, so this chip makes a lot of sense.
