According PhoneArena statement, stating that Google Pixel 5 abandoned the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship platform and opted for the Snapdragon 768G instead.
The source said that the price of 5G smartphones has generally increased, and the price of Snapdragon 865 smartphone has increased significantly. If you use Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon X55 5G modem, the phone will cost a lot. And these costs will inevitably be passed on to consumers, making the terminal expensive.
For this reason, Google Pixel 5 will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G mid-range mobile platform. This is the first time that Qualcomm 7 series chips have been used in the Pixel Digital series. Prior to this, Google only used Qualcomm 8 series of major platforms.
However, the Snapdragon 768G is not a bad option. It is based on 7nm process and uses Qualcomm Kryo 475 CPU prime core. The clock frequency is up to 2.8GHz, an increase from the Snapdragon 765G’s 2.4GHz.
Also this chip comes with Adreno 620 GPU. Its performance is 15% higher than the 765G. The graphics card on this SoC supports Adreno’s updatable GPU driver, the first 7 Series SoC to do so.
On the network side of things, it has an X52 5G modem with support for 100MHz sub-6 bandwidth and an additional 4xMIMO for low-bandwidth connections. It also has a dual-mode SA / NSA 5G connectivity.
Additionally, it has improved Wi-Fi 6 connectivity simultaneously with 2.4GHz and 5GHz and supports Bluetooth 5.2 version compared to 5.0 in its older 765G.
Other features of Google Pixel 5
In addition, we have learned about other features of the Google Pixel 5 series. It turns out that the new-gen models can support wireless reverse charging and come with pre-installed Android 11 systems.
It is worth noting that Google suggested in a survey report that the Google Pixel 5 would cost $ 699. Given that the Google Pixel 4 starts at $ 799 (6GB + 64GB), if the Pixel 5 starts at $ 699, it will have no chance with the Snapdragon 865 platform.
