Qualcomm updates its advanced mid-range mobile processor


One week after the official introduction of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for high-end mobile devices, Qualcomm is now introducing the successor to the Snapdragon 778G+ in the advanced mid-range segment. This is the new Snapdragon 782G, a new processor for mobile devices that has been introduced with minor improvements compared to its predecessor, without implying a qualitative leap in performance.

In this regard, it is an eight-core processor manufactured in a 6-nanometer process and structured in a three-tier architecture. At the top level is a single high-performance ARM Cortex-A78 core with a maximum frequency speed of 2.7GHz. At the intermediate level there are three Cortex-A78 cores with a frequency of 2.2 GHz, and at the lowest level there are four Cortex-A55 cores with a maximum frequency of 1.9 GHz.

A performance update and other minor options

When it comes to performance, Qualcomm notes that the CPU has seen an improvement of more than 5%, while the Adreno GPU has seen an improvement of up to 10%. Thanks to the integrated Qualcomm Spectra ISP, this processor supports cameras with up to 200MP sensors, allowing image capture in HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) format with 10-bit color depth, and video recording in HDR10 and HDR10+ up to 4K at 30fps, and 720p slow motion videos at 240fps.

It also supports RAM memory up to 16 GB LPDDR5 at a maximum speed of 3200 MHz, and regarding wireless connectivity, in addition to supporting 5G mobile networks at mmWave and sub-6 frequencies, it also supports WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.

To this must be added the support for an increasingly widespread NFC chip. The GLONASS, NavIC, Beidou, GPS, QZSS, and Galileo satellite positioning systems are also supported, and regarding energy charging, it has support for Quick Charge 4+ technology, which allows charging from 0 to 50% in just 15 minutes.

The company has not specified the brands that could already be working on models that integrate the new advanced mid-range processor, but it will be a matter of months, perhaps early next year, when we see the first mobile devices to integrate this new processor. for mobile devices.
