Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, earlier this year, as a successor to last year’s Snapdragon 778G Plus mobile platform. Now, the chipset maker has refreshed the Snapdragon 778G+ with the introduction of the new Snapdragon 782G chip. The new mobile platform packs a few minor upgrades but, otherwise, is very identical to the old one. Let’s see how capable the new Snapdragon chipset is.
Similar to the Snapdragon 778G+, the Snapdragon 782G is a 6nm chipset featuring an 8-core Kryo 670 processor and an Adreno 642L GPU. The CPU’s core configuration is identical to that of the 778G+: one Kryo 670 prime core (Cortex-A78), which runs up to 200MHz faster at 2.7GHz; three Kryo 670 Gold cores (also Cortex-A78), which are clocked at 2.2GHz; and four Kryo 670 Silver cores (Cortex-A55), which run at 1.9GHz.
According to Qualcomm, the CPU is now 5% faster and the GPU is 10% faster than the Snapdragon 778G+ due to the increased clock speed.
Much like its predecessor, the Snapdragon 782G supports resolutions of up to 200MP. Qualcomm claims image details taken at 200MP have been improved. Additionally, it features the same Qualcomm Spectra ISP with triple 14-bit ISP compatibility, Quick Charge 4+ (up to 50% in 15 minutes), and Fused AI Accelerator architecture.
