Alongside its flagship Snapdragon 865 chips, Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G mobile platforms. These chips aim to offer a premium mobile experience and bring the benefits of 5G to a larger audience.

The highlight of the platform is the integrated X52 5G modem (vs the X55 on the Snapdragon 865) that offers peak download and upload speeds of 3.7 Gbps and 1.6 Gbps.

The AI engine in the 765 series is also said to be twice as fast as the one in its predecessor.
