Qualcomm’s mid-range chip uses AI to clean up audio in voice calls
- It supports mmWave and Sub-6 GHz 5G and improved games.
Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 750G, a 5G-enabled processor designed specifically for mid-range smartphones rather than high-end devices that might use Snapdragon 765G.
The key feature is the updated 4 TOPS (Trillion Operations Per Second) artificial intelligence system that can perform echo cancellation and background vocal noise suppression for games, chats, and voice assistants.
Qualcomm says it can filter noise such as “buildings, children, or barking dogs,” so that listeners can only hear you.
Thanks to the new Adreno 619 GPU and Kryo 750 CPU, the new chip provides 20% CPU and 10% GPU improvement over Snapdragon 730G. Just like Snapdragon 765G, it supports mmWave and 5G below 6 GHz, as well as TDD, FDD, dynamic spectrum sharing, and multiple SIM card support.
All these alphabet soups mean that the chip should be able to be used with 5G in most parts of the world, with speeds up to 3.7 Gbps.
It also supports HDR and Qualcomm’s low-latency “elite game” function, as well as WiFi 6, dual-band GNSS, and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4+ technology (which can charge your phone to 50% of the battery in 15 minutes).
Since it is located one floor below the Snapdragon 765G (located in devices such as the $500 OnePlus Nord and LG’s $600 Velvet 5G), you can expect to see the Snapdragon 750G in devices at a price lower or lower than these prices.
Qualcomm said it will start entering the mobile phone market at the end of 2020.
