How To update Snapdragon GPU drivers on Android (SD 865/855/845)

In the previous year, Qualcomm has mentioned that the GPU driver updates can be possible in future via the Play Store at the time of launching Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. And yes, it’s right now the fastest processor available for Android devices.

Usually, GPU driver updates can be pushed to the users via OTA. While Qualcomm has also worked with the SDM 765 SoC and SDM865 SoC so that OEMs can easily provide GPU driver updates via the respective app store. Now, it seems that Xiaomi becomes the first OEM to provide the GPU driver update on its Adreno 650 GPU running devices using its own Chinese app store.

And not only to the Snapdragon 865 running devices but also previous generation Snapdragon 855 and 845 are also eligible to receive the update from OEMs. Xiaomi has recently uploaded an application called “GPU Driver Updater” on its Chinese app store which is a clear sign for dedicated support. This app literally provides the update to the Adreno 650 GPU in some of the eligible Chinese variant of Xiaomi devices like the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro. To recall, all these devices are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC.
