Qualcomm should soon launch the Snapdragon 768G processor, the company’s new component with performance for intermediate phones and support for 5G. Recently, the chip appeared in a leak equipping a new version of the Redmi K30 and also showed up in benchmarks, which show a performance gain compared to the 765G model.
A listing on Chinese e-commerce JD.com revealed that Xiaomi will launch the new Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition with the Snapdragon 768G processor, but without giving details about the component. Then, a leak made on the social network Weibo and shared on Twitter revealed more details about the chip.
According to the information, the Snapdragon 768G will be an octa-core chip with the main core running at 2.8 GHz and a secondary solution delivering up to 2.4 GHz. The other six CPUs will deliver up to 1.8 GHz in frequency. The graphics card must be the Adreno 620, the same present in the 765G, but clocked at 750 MHz, guaranteeing up to 20% more performance.
According to the person responsible for the leak, Qualcomm’s new chip also passed the Chinese AnTuTu benchmark and achieved a score of around 360,000. In comparison, the Snapdragon 765G manages to do about 300,000 in the same test.
To date, Qualcomm has not confirmed the specifications of the Snapdragon 768G and its existence has not yet been made official. The official presentation of the Redmi K30 5G Speed Edition will take place on May 11, during an online event. With that in mind, it may be that the formal revelation of the chipset will only be made on the date.
