The above SoCs was announced at the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019. On the first day, we have little knowledge about the details of the 865 and 765 Mobile Platforms.
The Snapdragon 765 and 765G 5G mobile platform are announced with an in-built Snapdragon X52 5G modem that supports up to 3.7 Gbps speeds with mmWave and Sub 6 support and SA, NSA, DSS support.

Well, the flagship chipset, Snapdragon 865 SoC comes with an improved AI performance and up to 25 percent increase in graphics capabilities than the previous chips.
It supports the X55 5G modem which was launched earlier this year but it failed to come integrated with it. It now needs a separate 5G modem to enable 5G instead of an integrated 5G modem built right into the chipset. This will definitely affect the pricing of 5G phones.
Qualcomm told TheVerge, that Snapdragon 865 and X55 are a package deal, and that it is exclusive for 5G phones and will require the companion X55 modem.
They also pinpointed that phone users will just have to make a decision with either flagship phones specs and integrated 5G with the new Snapdragon 865 and 765.
