Back in September 2020, it was reported that Qualcomm would release the Snapdragon 775G in early 2021. Alleged benchmark results had implied that the chip would be about as good as last year’s flagship Snapdragon 865. XDA Developers now has more on the SoC, courtesy of a telegram channel.
Per a seemingly legitimate internal document, the Snapdragon 775 (SM7350) will be built on the same 5nm process as the flagship Snapdragon 888. Needless to say, this would result in huge performance and efficiency gains over the Snapdragon 765G as it’s based on the 7nm technology.
This is not the most up-to-date version of the document and the actual specs might be a little different. Still, since XDA Developers has independently verified its authenticity, it’s almost a given that the Snapdragon 775 is a 5nm chip. This increases the likelihood of it bringing flagship-level performance to 5G-ready midrangers. Xiaomi could be one of the first manufacturers to use the new chip.
