Snapdragon 768G Process
Snapdragon 768G is based on the latest 7nm LPP EUV process by Samsung. It’s the same process used in Kirin 990 and Exynos 990.
The 7nm EUV process is the most up-to-dated process technology for manufacturing SoCs
Snapdragon 768G CPU
Snapdragon 768G uses a Kyro475 CPU based on a similar tri-cluster design (1+1+6). It consists of 1 x high-performance core which is the Kryo PrimeCortex–A76 running @2.8GHz, another Cortex-A76 but based on Kryo Gold running @2.2GHz and six energy-efficient Cortex–A55 cores running @1.8GHz. In comparison to SD 765 and Snapdragon 765G, one can see that the high-end cores frequency has been increased to 0.4GHz.
SD 768G has Adreno 620 as the GPU which is also overclocked compared to Snapdragon 765. It’s based on the 7 nm process and has a frequency of 750 MHz. Surprisingly, the GPU performance has been increased by up to 15% compared the SD 765 and 765G.
Snapdragon 768G AI
Snapdragon 768G incorporates the latest Hexagon 696 Processor for AI tasks and operations. In terms of AI performance, the SD 768G TOPs score is 5.3. The AI benchmark score of SD 768 is 9108 points.
Snapdragon 768G AnTuTu Score (Expected)
Moving to the scores of the AnTuTu Benchmark v8, official claims that the overall performance of the Snapdragon 768G has increased by about 10%, scoring around 360,000 points.
Snapdragon 768G supports 5G networking and is the first upper-mid SoC to provide this networking. Snapdragon 768G integrating the X52 modem (internal) gives 5G download up to 3.7 Gbit/s and upload up to 1.6 Gbit/s. Moreover, it also supports Global 5G networking consisting of sub-6 GHz in Europe and Asia and mmWave 5G in the US. For 4G LTE, the download uses Cat 24 with a speed up to 1200 Mbit/s and for upload Cat 22 with a speed up to 210 Mbit/s. The Snapdragon 768G download and upload speeds are 3.7 Gbps and 1.6 Gbps respectively for the mmWave 5G network.
Snapdragon 768G Other Features
Similar to the SD 765 and 765G, it has the Snapdragon Elite Gaming feature. There’s also the aptX audio technology. In terms of camera support, we have the Spectra 355 which supports 192 MP single camera and up to 22 MP at 30fps Dual Camera with MFNR/ZSL. It also supports the latest QC 4.0+ charging.
Price & Availability
Since Qualcomm SoCs aren’t limited to a specific manufacturer, we can see a wide price range of smartphones featuring SD 768G depending on the manufacturer. Xiaomi and Realme phones will be much cheaper, meanwhile, manufacturers like OPPO and Vivo will have phones featuring SD 768G for a much expensive price. At present, we have the Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G Speed Version rumored to feature this SoC.
