Qualcomm yesterday (September 23) announced its mid-range 5G-enbaled processor for smartphones, the Snapdragon 750G. And Xiaomi said it was among the first to bring this chipset in smartphones later this year. But it looks like Samsung may also bring this chipset in its handset soon. And according to a new report, that handset could be the Galaxy A42 5G. Although this handset was announced earlier this month, Samsung did not reveal the processor details. However, a report via GSMArena adds that the ‘secret’ chipset might just be the Snapdragon 750G.
What gave away this information are the source codes of the Galaxy A42 5G’s benchmark. Although it did not reveal the processor name, it did reveal the Adreno 619 GPU, which as we all say yesterday, came in Snapdragon 750G. However, this is not a confirmation though since the Snapdragon 690 5G also features the same GPU.
We can only wait for Samsung to officially unveil what’s the deal here.
Snapdragon 750G is Qualcomm’s second in the 7xx series to feature 5G support. The processor includes Qualcomm Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF System, which supports mmWave and sub-6GHz. In addition, you get Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming features for smooth, low-latency gameplay. With 5th generation Qualcomm AI Engine, the Snapdragon 750 “powers intuitive interactions enabling smart camera and video, voice translation, advanced AI based imaging, and AI enhanced gaming experiences,” says the firm. Even the AI Engine is said to deliver 20% better than Snapdragon 730G with 4 trillion operations per second (TOPS).
Xiaomi has confirmed that it will be among the first to bring it in smartphones. “Xiaomi is committed to developing cutting-edge devices to address the growing consumer demand for 5G,” said Quanxin Wang, General Manager of Product and Technology, Xiaomi International. “We are proud to work with Qualcomm Technologies to launch the first commercial smartphone based on the latest Snapdragon 750G to consumers.”
