Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 and 765G specifications and features
Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G processors will provide 5G connectivity for upper mid-range smartphones. They are equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X52 5G modem, which is touted to provide peak download speeds of up to 3.7Gbps.

The Xiaomi Redmi K30 and OPPO Reno 3 Pro will be the first to utilise these chipsets. HMD Global has also announced that it will be introducing a 5G Nokia phone in the first quarter of the next year.
Qualcomm 3D Sonic Max fingerprint sensor specifications and features
Talking about Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max, it is touted to be the world’s largest fingerprint sensor to date, 17 times larger than the first-gen ultrasonic sensor from the brand. The new fingerprint sensor is so big, in fact, that it can be used to authenticate two fingers at the same time. Notably, the 3D Sonic Max also brings vastly improved security features. Qualcomm expects that devices with its new fingerprint scanner will start releasing commercially in the first quarter of next year.
