Qualcomm has announced a very interesting upgrade to its Snapdragon 700 series, the Snapdragon 750G. The mid-range chipset promises a 10% improvement in GPU performance over Snapdragon 730G, is the cheapest Qualcomm chipset to support mmWave 5G and employs Cortex-A77 cores in the performance cluster.

With Snapdragon 800 tier getting progressively expensive, the 700 series is becoming very prominent in capable mid-range devices. The Snapdragon 750G is similar to and pin-compatible with Cortex-A77 based Snapdragon 690 in many ways, but the 600 tier must have been more difficult to market.

Snapdragon 750G Features

  • Snapdragon 750G is manufactured on Samsung’s 8nm LPP process node.
  • Unlike the Snapdragon 768 or Snapdragon 765, there is no Prime Cortex-A77 core here and the SoC maintains (2+6) DynamIQ configuration. However, Cortex-A77 brings in 25% improvement over Cortex-A76 used in Snapdragon 765/768 and this should really close the CPU performance between the three chipsets.
  • The 6 Cortex-A55 cores are clocked at 1.8GHz, similar to Snapdragon 768, Snapdragon 765, and even Snapdragon 730G.
  • CPU and GPU cores in combination with Hexagon 694 DSP and tensor accelerator can deliver 4 TOPS for AI.
  • The camera ISP, LPDDR4x memory support, encode-decode pipeline are all similar to what we have on Snapdragon 765G/ Snapdragon 768G
  • Snapdragon 750G can support up to 192MP single sensor, and up to 48MP camera with Multi-frame noise reduction. Slow motion recording caps at 720p@240Hz
  • The Adreno 619 GPU promises 10% improvements over Adreno 618 in Snapdragon 730G.
  • Snapdragon 750G has an integrated X52 modem that supports 5G mmWave. This isn’t very relevant to India, but should make a difference in markets like the USA.
  • Snapdragon 750G supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+ (no QC 5.0), NavIC, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
  • Snapdragon 750G supports Full HD+ resolution displays at up to 120Hz refresh rate and QHD+ at 60Hz
