Recently, Qualcomm released the new predecessor of the SD 7 series which are Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G. The SoCs are successors of the previous Snapdragon 730 and 730G. We have made the list of the upcoming phones which are rumored to feature the new Snapdragon 765.
Why should you go for Snapdragon 765 in 2020?
The successor of the Snapdragon 730 is the first SoC to feature 5G networking on the upper-mid end category based on the same 7nm process similar to the high-end SD 865. The only difference is that it’s based on LPP EUV while SD 865 is the first to use TSMC’s N7P process. Moreover, SD 765 has an integrated modem but the external modem of SD 865 is questionable. Moreover, with the core power distribution lesser than SD 865, we might witness the most durable, power-efficient SoC of all.
