Qualcomm launches another 5G processor : the Snapdragon 750G
(5G processor) While fans are still waiting for concrete news about the next-generation flagship Snapdragon processor, Qualcomm doubles its commitment to the flagship space with another 5G-capable 7-series chipset: the Snapdragon 750G.
Expected to appear on devices later this year – only Xiaomi has so far committed to producing a phone that uses it – the 750G will support 120Hz refresh rate displays, 4K HDR recording and playback, and up to 12GB. of RAM.
5G is handled by the X52 modem, with support for both the mmWave and Sub-6 GHz frequencies. And if you’ll pardon the next attack of jargon, it also supports both SA and NSA, TDD, FDD, DSS, global roaming and multi-systems. SIM.
Like the 765G and 768G before it, the 750G prioritizes gaming features in addition to its 5G support. The company touts 20% improvements in CPU performance and 10% in GPU performance compared to the Snapdragon 730G.
There is also a 20% increase in machine learning performance – increasingly important as smartphone makers continue to push AI features in cameras and beyond.
The prices of the 750G phones are expected to be varied, but we know that Xiaomi’s next device – a member of the Mi 10 family, and possibly the Mi 10T which will be launched on September 30 – will cost between 200 and 300 euros.

“Xiaomi is committed to developing state-of-the-art devices to cope with the growing consumer demand for 5G,” said Quanxin Wang, Xiaomi’s CEO of Product and Technology. “We are proud to work with Qualcomm Technologies to bring consumers the first commercial smartphone based on the latest Snapdragon 750G.”
So far, the 5G 7 series chips have proven to be a hit for Qualcomm, with devices as varied as the new next-gen LG wing and the inexpensive OnePlus Nord using the Snapdragon 765G. The company claims that 140 devices using a 5G 7 series chip have been released or are being developed so far, adding to the more than 165 devices using the top-tier Snapdragon 865 and 865+.
For phones even cheaper than Xiaomi’s new Mi 10, Qualcomm already has the Snapdragon 690 5G and has already promised that next year we will see the company’s first entry-level 4-series chipset with 5G support.
In the next 12 months it is likely that most budget phones will come with 5G support, although we are still seeing people like Xiaomi’s Poco sub-brand increase other specs at the expense of 5G on phones like the new Poco X3. .
