Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 765 and 765G as upper mid-range chipsets used on models such as the OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G, Redmi K30, OnePlus Nord, Pixel 5, ZTE Blade 20 Pro, and Vivo V20 Pro among others. There are indications that the US fabless chipmaker is working on a Snapdragon 775 chipset.
Some details of the Snapdragon 775 and 775G were reportedly spotted in a group chat on the Telegram forum Xiaomiui (via). A list purported to contain the specifications of the Snapdragon 775 and 775G was shared in the group showing the chipsets will be manufactured using the current 5nm process.
The Snapdragon 775 series is not new in the rumor mill. Last year, it was rumored that the chipset will be manufactured using the 6nm process. The chip was even tipped to feature onboard the Redmi K40 in Q4 2020. The Redmi K40 was released recently and didn’t feature the Snapdragon 775.
The 5nm build process, if true, will offer faster and more power-efficient performance compared to the 7nm build which the Snapdragon 765 series utilized. The 5nm process is only utilized by the Snapdragon 800-series and that will bring the SD775 closer in terms of performance and power efficiency.
We can’t vouch for the authenticity of these details but XDA’s sources say the sheet looks like a genuine slide from an internal Qualcomm document but appears to be an outdated version. Thus, it is possible Qualcomm may have effected a change in the name considering how the Snapdragon 888 moniker took us all by surprise.
There are rumours that the Snapdragon 775 may be used on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. The smartphone is expected to launch any moment from now. So, we may not have to wait for too long before the chipset is announced.
