The Snapdragon 765 is a pretty good chip that combines a range of advanced features in the Qualcomm 800 series with a lower price that places it at the higher end of the mid-range. According to an alleged leak on Telegram, the next upgrade to this class will be significant. Snapdragon 775’s biggest change is a shift to the smaller and more efficient 5 nanometer manufacturing process, as seen on the 888.

Hardware comparison between SM7250 (Snapdragon 765) and SM7350 (Snapdragon 775), bold upgrades.
This unconfirmed hardware would make the 5nm Snapdragon 775 almost as powerful as the 7nm 870 and potentially better in some areas like memory speed and multi-camera performance. It would not be able to go toe to toe with the 888, but then it did not need to – it would be used in much cheaper devices. Given that important details like the CPU and GPU model are missing, and given that it is a real leak, it may take a while for SoC to show up in devices.
