With even faster clock speeds. And here we thought the 700 series is forever replaced by the 7 series.
When you thought the Snapdragon 700 series is dead, that’s where you’re wrong. Sure, we already got the Samsung-made Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, but also, we need a compliment to that. Obviously, Qualcomm won’t just call the next one “Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1”, at least not immediately, as that will undermine the SD7G1, so instead we’re going back to the hundreds series.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 782 is designed to replace the Snapdragon 778G+. According to our sources, it will first appear with the Honor 80, Honor’s newest midrange device with a dynamic island-like notch.
According to the technical specs, the Snapdragon 782G is a 6nm chipset equipped with an octa-core Kryo 670 CPU and an Adreno 642L GPU. In terms of its architecture, it’s virtually identical to the Snapdragon 778G+ but this time with 200MHz faster clocks. This means that the prime core (Kryo 670) now runs at 2.7GHz, the triple core Kryo 670 Gold performance cores at 2.2GHz, and the four Kryo 670 Silver efficiency cores at 1.9GHz.
This slight bump has 5% better CPU speeds, and 10% faster GPU. This may not feel significant to casual users but those who game a lot may feel it. Due to this, the benchmark scores are going to be slightly different but may not be too significant from their predecessor.
Among other things retained include the Quick Charge 4+ charging tech (50% in 15 minutes), the Qualcomm Spectra 14-bit ISP, and the same Snapdragon X53 modem with 5G, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-Fi 6 support.
