Qualcomm introduced the mobile single-chip platform Snapdragon 782G for mid-range smartphones. The novelty is a “cosmetic” update of the Snapdragon 778G + model.
Similar to its predecessor, the new processor is manufactured in a 6 nm process technology, has eight Kryo 670 cores and an Adreno 642L graphics core. The Snapdragon 782G packs a Kryo 670 Prime (ARM Cortex-A78) core clocked at 2.7GHz (200MHz faster than the Snapdragon 778G+), three Kryo 670 Gold (Cortex-A78) cores clocked at up to 2.2GHz and four cores Kryo 670 Silver (Cortex-A55) with a frequency of up to 1.9 GHz. Thanks to the increased frequency of the most powerful core, the performance of the Snapdragon 782G is about 5% higher than that of its predecessor. At the same time, the graphics performance of the new chip is increased by 10%, that is, the GPU also received overclocking, although this is not specified.
Like the previous chip, the novelty supports Quick Charge 4+ fast charging technology, which allows you to charge your smartphone battery up to 50% in 15 minutes. In addition, the new processor uses the same Fused AI Accelerator architecture, the same Qualcomm Spectra ISP signal processor with bit rates up to 2 gigapixels per second and supports cameras up to 200 MP. The modem in the Snapdragon 782G also remained the same. This is a Snapdragon X53 with 5G support in sub-6GHz and mmWave bands. The FastConnect 6700 module with support for Wi-Fi 6 with speeds up to 2.9 Gbps and Bluetooth 5.2 is also announced for the novelty. For more characteristics of the chip, see the table below.
Qualcomm has not revealed which smartphone will be the first to receive the Snapdragon 782G processor. It is very likely that this is the Honor 80, which will be announced on November 23, according to the GSMArena portal.
