Snapdragon 782G is here to replace Snapdragon 778G+Platform

The CPU performance of the Snapdragon 782G SoC is said to be 5 percent better than that of its predecessor. As a replacement for the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC that was released last year, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 782G SoC on Wednesday. The chipset is produced using TSMC’s 6nm technology and is intended for the premium mid-range market. It has a Kryo 670 Prime CPU with a maximum 2.7GHz clock speed. Contrary to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC that Qualcomm just unveiled, it is presently unknown which smartphones would be fitted with the recently released Snapdragon 782G chipset.

The TSMC 6nm process is used to produce the Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G SoC, which has a Kyro 670 Prime core with a maximum clock speed of 2.7GHz, three Kryo 670 Gold cores, each clocked at 2.2GHz, and four Kryo 670 Silver cores, each clocked at 1.9GHz. It is coupled with an Adreno 642L GPU, which the manufacturer claims are up to 10% quicker than the Snapdragon 778G+ chipset it replaces.

This chipset includes the Qualcomm Spectra 570L, a triple 14-bit ISP for image processing that can allow photo capture at gigapixel speeds.

As with capabilities for mm-wave and sub-6GHz 5G connection, the chipset also has a Qualcomm Snapdragon X53 5G modem-RF system for 5G connectivity that is said to provide download speeds of up to 3.7Gpbs.

Full-HD+ displays with a refresh rate of 144Hz are supported with the Snapdragon 782G SoC. Up to a 4K external monitor at 60 frames per second can be supported by it. The Qualcomm Spectra triple 14-bit ISP, part of the chipset, supports images from single cameras with a maximum resolution of 200 megapixels. Up to 4K videos can be recorded at 120 frames per second.

To improve AI performance, the chipset combines a Qualcomm Hexagon 770 Tensor Accelerator with the 6th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine. According to Qualcomm, these changes can help features like AI-based activity tracking, audio enhancement, and background noise elimination. The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC offers Qualcomm’s aptX suite for lossless music, is Wi-Fi 6E compatible and supports Bluetooth v5.2 and NFC.

When the new Snapdragon 782G SoC will be available in smartphones has not yet been specified by the California-based semiconductor company. Additionally, the company has not disclosed which smartphone makers will be the first to use the new chipset, which is anticipated to power handsets in the premium-midrange segment.
