Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7 series has been widely used nowadays especially with budget-friendly and premium mid-range phones. Now, the Snapdragon 765G has officially had its successor by the name of the Snapdragon 780G, packed with improvements from its predecessor and cool features.
The Snapdragon 780G CPU will be using a Kryo 670 CPU that clocks at up to 2.4GHz. Comparing with the previous chipset, the CPU’s architecture for the 780G will be offering a 40^ uplift in performance. There will also be 4 ARM Cortex-A78 cores and 4 Cortex-A55 cores applied. With a 5nm, there will be a minor boost in performance in Snapdragon’s 780G CPU.
When it comes to graphics, the 780G will be paired with Adreno 642 GPU and will be including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Elite Gaming Features suite. The various gaming features that come along are Game Smoother, Fast Loader, Game Network Latency Manager, Jank Reducer, and many more. It will also feature a higher refresh rate up to 144Hz.
Featuring the Spectra 570, the Snapdragon 780G will have a triple Image Signal Processor that has the capacity to take photos using three different camera sensors concurrently. It also has ISP which backs up three 25 MP sensors in a triple camera setup. It goes up to 64 MP + 20 MP sensors in dual-camera setups while up to 84 MP single-camera setup. The new low-light photography architecture in the new chipset can give huge improvements to ultra-low light photography. As for others, the Snapdragon 780G supports 4K HDR, HDR10+, and HLG video.
The FastConnect 6900 system, usually used by Snapdragon’s 888 and 865+ chipset, and the Snapdragon X53 5G modem will be featured for connectivity. With upgraded connectivity features and a new modem system, the chip will provide a 3.3 Gbps maximum speed on 5G while using Wi-Fi 6E can give a 3.6Gbps download speed.
The Snapdragon 780G will also be using a new and powerful 6th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine and a Hexagon 770 processor that can deliver up to 12 TOPS (trillions of performance) performance. A new 2nd Gen Qualcomm Sensing Hub will also be added to lessen power consumption especially in voice calls and also features a background noise cancellation for better call quality.
This new chipset will soon be making its debut in Q2 2021. We can also expect due to Qualcomm’s struggle in producing premium chipsets such as the Snapdragon 888, the Snapdragon 780G will be a good option for premium-mid range smartphones.
