Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 782G Smartphone Chipset: All the Details
Qualcomm on Wednesday launched the Snapdragon 782G SoC as the successor to the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC launched last year. The chipset is designed for the premium mid-range segment and is manufactured on TSMC’s 6nm process. It features a Kryo 670 Prime core with a clock speed of up to 2.7GHz. Unlike the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC recently announced by Qualcomm, there is currently no word on which phones will be equipped with the newly launched Snapdragon 782G chipset.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G SoC is manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process and includes a Kyro 670 Prime core with a clock speed of up to 2.7GHz, three Kryo 670 Gold cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and three Kryo 670 Silver cores four cores set at 1.9GHz. Combined with Adreno 642L GPU, the company claims up to 10 percent faster than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 778G+ chipset.
For image processing, this chipset includes the Qualcomm Spectra 570L, a 14-bit ISP capable of supporting gigapixel speed imaging.
The chipset also has a built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon X53 5G modem-RF system for 5G connectivity that is said to support download speeds of up to 3.7Gpbs and mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G support.
The Snapdragon 782G SoC can support full HD+ displays with a refresh rate of 144Hz. It has high external display support up to 4K resolution at 60fps. The chipset includes a Qualcomm Spectra triple 14-bit ISP capable of handling single 200-megapixel camera shots. It can record videos up to 4K at 120fps.
The chipset features the 6th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine paired with the Qualcomm Hexagon 770 Tensor Accelerator to boost AI performance. Features such as AI-based activity tracking, audio enhancement, and background noise cancellation could benefit from these additions, according to Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC is Wi-Fi 6E compliant, supports Bluetooth v5.2 and NFC connectivity, and includes the Qualcomm aptX suite for lossless audio.
The Snapdragon 782G SoC supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ technology to support fast charging, according to the company.
The California-based semiconductor manufacturer is yet to announce when the new Snapdragon 782G SoC will arrive in smartphones. The company also did not announce which smartphone manufacturers will be the first to install the new chipset, which is expected to power smartphones in the premium-midrange segment.
