Qualcomm has kept itself busy over the past few months. The chipset maker has announced a slew of chipsets, both the 4G and 5G that will power the next-generation devices. It has also designed a unique chipset to enhance the performance of truly wireless earbuds. But this week, it has introduced the new Snapdragon 750 processor with an integrated 5G modem. This chipset is most likely going to succeed the Snapdragon 730G series. Because of this, we believe the SD 750 will cater to the mid-range segment with its 5G offering.
The G denoted in the name refers to the gaming capability of the chipset. Qualcomm points out the new processor comes bundled with Adreno 619 GPU which is 10 percent faster than its predecessor. The company also claims the new chipset will offer a smooth and low-latency gaming experience. The first set of phones powered by the chipset will be launched before the end of 2020. And like always, Xiaomi will be one of the first phone makers to support the new Snapdragon chipset.
