Qualcomm Announces Its Snapdragon 778g 5G Processor | Digital Trends Spanish
Qualcomm unveiled its new 700 series processor, which targets mid-to-high game phones: Snapdragon 778G 5G, which is in addition to the Snapdragon 780 announced in March.
The 778G is comprised of a Kyro 670 CPU and an Adreno 642L GPU, which Qualcomm says will allow a 40 percent performance increase over previous generation processors.
But beyond the capacity for games or processing in general, what is interesting is in some additions. The Snapdragon 778G will include a feature that until now was only present in high-end chips, such as the 800 series, and that allows you to capture video from three cameras at the same time.
Regarding connectivity, it is clearly a chip with the ability to connect to 5G – the name says it all – in mmWave and sub-6Ghz networks, which are the most used today. And there is also support for Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.
Now, it is good to mention some equipment that will include this processor in the future. For starters, high-end phones such as Samsung’s Galaxy S or Note and their equivalents from other manufacturers with Android and high-end chips, such as the Snapdragon 860 or higher.
Instead, the 778g is targeting models like those being made by Xiaomi, Motorola, Oppo, Realme, and the like: good-performing phones and some high-end features, but at lower prices.
So far, only the next Honor 50 is confirmed as one of the first phones to include this chip, but it is a matter of time before the rest of the aforementioned manufacturers begin to present theirs.
