without spotlight, Qualcomm has quietly added a new Snapdragon 782G chip to its mobile product lineup. This new processor is actually a slightly improved version of the Snapdragon 778 and 778G+, supporting higher processing speeds and improving graphics performance.
Like the Snapdragon 778 series chips, the new processor is designed for upper mid-range smartphones and supports the following
- Up to a Full HD+ display at 144 Hz or up to a 4K display at 60 Hz.
- Up to 200 megapixels for a single photo sensor or up to 22 megapixels for three photo sensors
- Burst photography up to 120 fps @ 8 megapixels
- Slow motion video recording up to 240 Hz at 720p
- Wi Fi 6
- Bluetooth 5.2
- 5G peak speeds up to 3.7 Gb/s downlink/1.6 Gb/s uplink
That’s what Qualcomm claims the new chip is particularly distinguished by its support for “highly detailed shots up to 200 megapixels”, but the specs of the camera seem about the same as the Snapdragon 778 series. What’s different? Qualcomm says it has the new chip offerings a 10% increase in graphics performance and a “more than 5%” improvement in CPU performance.
|8 Kryo cores up to 2.7 GHz
|8 Kryo 670 cores up to 2.5 GHz
|8 Kryo cores up to 2.4 GHz
|Adreno (up to 10% faster)
Note that this maximum CPU speed is ? It is very likely that it is only the core of the most powerful processor. Other cores will likely run at slower speeds.
Smartphones with the new chip should be on the market soon. NotebookCheck expects the Honor 80 to be one of the first smartphones with the chip, and the unveiling is on track.
