Flagship phones have always been popular due to its providing high performance but since the mid-range phones are slowly reaching similar performance to the flagship phones, we can say ‘Mid-range are the new flagships’. A couple of years ago, the difference in performance between flagship and mid-range devices was vast. That difference in performance made flagship phone a flagship and mid-range phone a mid-range phone. But as the advancement in making SoCs improved, mid-range chipsets have gotten better and better. It got so much better, that it started giving almost similar performance to that of flagship chipsets. One big example would be Qualcomm’s latest mid-range processor, the Snapdragon 765 SoC. It delivers flagship performance and 5G connectivity at a lower price than its more expensive sibling, the Snapdragon 865. Now, there is a new successor of the already great mid-range chipset. Qualcomm on May 10, 2020, officially unveiled its Snapdragon 768 processor, the successor of Snapdragon 765.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G, the new mid-range chipset improves on the model before it by increasing the clock speed of the chips. Primarily, Qualcomm has boosted the clock speed of the from cores in 768G from 2.4GHz to 2.8Ghz. Not only that, but the 768G also has boosted the GPU performance. Even though it uses the same Adreno 620 GPU found in the previous model, it has seen an increase in performance of 15% than its predecessor. The Snapdragon 768G still retains the integrated 5G modem from the previous generation as well as comes with Qualcomm’s fifth-generation AI engine, and Qualcomm’s Elite Gaming features.
Soon after the unveiling of Snapdragon 768G chipset, the first phone to use the SoC was also announced. The first phone to use the new chipset is the Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition. The newly announced phone will be 5G enabled out of the box and feature 120Hz display and a 64MP camera.
