Last week, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platforms that will power 5G smartphones in 2020. Surprisingly, the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G received the most attention due to that fact that they 1) include 5G integrated directly into the SoC and 2) will allow vastly cheaper 5G-enabled smartphones to come to market. Today, Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi is delivering on the promise of value-laden 5G-enabled smartphones with the Redmi K30 5G. This the first smartphone to be announced with the Snapdragon 765G, which is the gaming-centric version of Qualcomm's new mid-range 5G SoC. The Redmi K30 5G will pack in 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM...

The smartphone industry is at the beginning of a transition period. For years, we've been spoiled by 4G LTE wireless connectivity and its relatively ubiquity, but 5G networks are starting to popup around the globe. There were a handful of devices that shipped in 2019 with 5G connectivity (Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G, Galaxy S10 5G, etc.), but the big boom in 5G will occur in 2020. The vast majority of Android smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, and the company this week announced two new SoCs that are 5G-enabled: the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform and Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platform. But the way they go about providing 5G is quite different. Snapdragon... Read more...
We've already brought you an overview of Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform, but the chip giant also has two "lesser" chips on deck for the mid-range to premium smartphone markets. The two chips are the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G; the latter of which is a gaming-oriented SoC. Like the Snapdragon 865 + Snapdragon X55 solution that we've already discussed, the Snapdragon 765/765G are 5G-enabled solutions, but they are superior to the flagship SoC in one critical aspect. Whereas the Snapdragon 865 requires a separate 5G modem that increases physical space and power requirements for OEMs, the Snapdragon 765/765G have an integrated 5G modem. In this case,...

It's that time of the year again; Qualcomm is holding an event in sunny Hawaii, and it's announcing a new flagship SoC for mobile devices. But Qualcomm hasn't just announced the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform -- which was expected -- but it also announced the Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platforms. As you might expect for SoCs that will be powering the bulk of flagship Android smartphones in 2020, all three SKUs bring 5G connectivity to the table. Given that this is just Day 1 of Qualcomm's 3-day tech extravaganza, the company is being rather light on details for now. What we do know at this time, however, is that the Snapdragon 865 is being billed as the true "flagship" SoC, and that it includes... Read more...
I've always wanted to own a convertible, and despite not having a roof, the new McLaren Elva does not fall into that category. So, I guess I'll pass on buying one. I will, however, happily accept one as a gift, if anyone out there fancies purchasing a nearly $1.7 million supercar as a present. Options cost extra, of course, such as tacking on a 24-ct gold engine bay heat shield. This is not a so called grocery-getter by any stretch. It falls way on the other end of the spectrum, though you could certainly get to the supermarket and back in quick fashion with the Elva's 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine harnessing 804 horsepower. Just be sure to pack a set of goggles—a windshield is not included... Read more...
