Qualcomm has announced another midrange 5G chipset – the 5nm based Snapdragon 780G 5G which is aimed to provide a better AI performance, better camera experience, and faster 5G support. It is based on an eight-core architecture and is the successor to the Snapdragon 768.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G 5G follows the characteristics of the current flagship product Snapdragon 888 chipset, and the new 780G also uses a 5nm process. It is equipped with an eight-core CPU, including 2 ARM Cortex-A78 with a clock frequency of 2.4GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 cores with a clock frequency of 1.8GHz. The report suggests that Samsung will be developing this chipset on behalf of Qualcomm.
Snapdragon 780G is equipped with Adreno 642 GPU, and its graphics driver supports OTA updates. This is good news for game enthusiasts because the GPU will provide true 10bit HDR resolution during gaming.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G is the first 7-series processor to obtain the Spectra 570 image signal processor (ISP). The ISP can support three different cameras at the same time. The chipset can achieve better photo quality in low light conditions and allows video recording in HDR 10+ and 4K HDR resolutions.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G uses the Snapdragon X53 modem to provide 5G connectivity. The modem can reach a download speed of 3Gbps on a sub-6 GHz network. Like the most high-end Snapdragon 888, it also supports Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, and Wi-Fi 6E, thanks to FastConnect 6900.
As of now, there is no confirmation about the smartphones that will be powered by this latest chipset and we’ll be getting further updates on this in the coming time. While the upcoming Xiaomi 11 Lite is said to come with this latest chipset.
