Qualcomm recently unveiled its next flagship smartphone processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2; as a follow-up to the Snapdragon 778G+, the company has now introduced the Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G.
The chipset has an octa-core Kryo 670 processor and an Adreno 642L graphics processor and is made using a 6nm manufacturing process. One Kryo 670 Prime core (Cortex-A78) running at 2.7GHz, three Kryo 670 Gold cores (Cortex-A78) running at up to 2.2GHz, and four Kryo 670 Silver cores (Cortex-A55) running at up to 1.9GHz are all included.
According to the manufacturer, as compared to the Snapdragon 778G+, the CPU is about 5% quicker and the GPU is 10% faster. The Qualcomm Spectra ISP, a triple 14-bit ISP with the capacity to handle up to 2 gigapixels per second and up to 200MP resolution support, is one of several features on this new chip that we previously saw on the 782G.
It contains a Snapdragon X53 modem that supports mmWave and sub-6GHz, and the FastConnect 6700 provides compatibility for Wi-Fi 6 up to 2.9Gbps and Bluetooth 5.2. Additionally, it adds support for Quick Charge 4+, which the manufacturer claims can charge a device up to 50% in just 15 minutes.
The incoming Honor 80 is most likely to be the first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 782G CPU, according to rumors. Qualcomm has not yet stated which devices will be equipped with this new engine.
