The GPU also supports Adreno updatable GPU drivers.
Other features include the fifth generation of the Qualcomm AI Engine to power features such as real-time translation and ultra-smooth AI-based lens filters for social media apps, and the Qualcomm Sensing Hub to provide contextual awareness of commands given to AI voice assistants and to automatically identify music that is playing around users.
Snapdragon 768G is said to provide superior gaming performance, 5G connectivity, and intelligent multi-camera capabilities, while being pin- and software-compatible with Snapdragon 765 and 765G.
Its Snapdragon X52 5G modem-RF system supports all frequency bands including 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz, 5G SA and NSA modes, TDD and FDD with Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS), global 5G roaming and multi-SIM capability.
Download speeds of up to 3.7 Gbps and upload speeds of up to 1.6 Gbps are said to be possible.
