5G, 5G, everywhere!

With 5G becoming the buzzword for every future smartphone purchase, Qualcomm ensures that not only premium smartphones will support 5G, but the budget and mainstream segments will also see it.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 768G Mobile Platform has been announced, and this will be a follow-on to the Snapdragon 765G. The 768G is designed to bring next-level performance enabling smart gaming with the integration of 5G data networking.
