Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 next to a US penny

For 2020's affordable flagship smartphones, there's the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G.

On the gaming front, Katouzian says to expect a 25% increase in graphic performance from last year's Snapdragon 865. Along with this, we today also got a new Snapdragon 765 chipset series, which is the company's first chipset with an integrated 5G modem.

While the Snapdragon 865 will obviously be the premium smartphone platform, aimed at flagship phones, recall that Qualcomm also announced what it called the "Elite Gaming Platform" as part of the 855, with some tweaked features in its Adreno GPU.

Qualcomm has not yet divulged full details of these two chips and what consumers can expect from smartphones powered by them.

During the annual Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm today unveiled its upcoming flagship processor, the Snapdragon 865. For the moment, here are some photos of the Snapdragon 865 and the Snapdragon 765/765G, along with size comparisons with an American dime.

They could get back on track quickly because they are assured of facing a quality opponent in the tournament's consolation game. The loss ended a five-game winning streak to open the year for the Vols, though there remain plenty more games to be played.

Then there are the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G. With 5G antennas and other components in tow, the Snapdragon 765 won't make for cheap 5G phones, but it will certainly lower the entry price point compared to the 800 series. Producers will have the ability to add a separate 5G modem (on this case, the second-generation X55 mannequin).

What we know about the 765 chips are they're based on the x52 modem system, up to 3.7Gbps download speeds thanks to a modem RF system that no other chip company is able to use. Not all the details about the platforms have been announced, but there will be more to follow.

5G will be popularized via telecom carriers and the marketing of wire-cutting services, but the biggest impact and returns will come from connecting the Internet of things, edge computing and analytics infrastructure with minimal latency. But what devices will feature the latest and greatest Snapdragon chip?

He did say that the two new Snapdragon platforms will "lead and scale" 5G and AI in 2020. We've already had confirmation that ZTE, Xiaomi and Oppo will be among the first to launch 865 devices, with Xiaomi saying that the Mi 10 would be one of the first devices.
