Xiaomi Redmi K30 and OPPO Reno 3 Pro will have the 5G Snapdragon 765G
Qualcomm is busy teasing the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765 today at the Snapdragon Tech Summit. While the company hasn’t disclosed many details of these chips yet, we’re already hearing about the devices that will run them. The Xiaomi Mi 10 has been confirmed to feature the Snapdragon 865, and now we know the Redmi K30 will have the 5G Snapdragon 765G, thanks to Bin Lin, Xiaomi’s Co-Founder and Vice Chairman. The 765G is the gaming-centric variant of the Snapdragon 765. Alen Wu, vice president and president of global sales at OPPO, revealed that the company’s upcoming Reno3 Pro 5G will also be powered by the Snapdragon 765G.
The Redmi K30 has shown up a few times in recent months. Back in August, Xiaomi confirmed it would have 5G support, and that is indeed the case with the Snapdragon 765G. Some of the other important highlights include a 120Hz display, 60 or 64MP Sony IMX686 primary lens, quad rear cameras, dual front hole-punch cameras, and side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The phone is expected to be officially announced on December 10th.
As for the OPPO Reno3 Pro, we don’t know nearly as much about it. It was confirmed to support 5G connectivity, so the Snapdragon 765G makes sense in that regard. Some of the other specifications include a 4,025 mAh battery and a thin 7.7mm body. OPPO’s VP shared a teaser image of the device late last month.
We still have a lot to learn about the Snapdragon 765G and what it will be capable of. Qualcomm will reveal more details about the 765 and 765G during day 2 of the Snapdragon Tech Summit. Expect both the Redmi K30 and Reno3 Pro to be among the first to ship with Qualcomm’s latest upper mid-range chip.
