The chipset has three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores with a maximum clock speed of 1.9 GHz.
The chipset’s CPU performance is said to be around 5% faster, with the Adreno 642L GPU delivering a 10% speed boost in GPU performance.
The new chip also supports 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, WiFi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.2. It also supports cameras up to 200 megapixels with a single sensor with HDR10 and DHR10+ recording up to 4K 30 fps and 240 fps with 720p slow motion video.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G, just like the older 778G Plus, also supports Quick Charge 4+ which enables a 0-50% charge in 15 minutes.
Qualcomm has yet to share details of which devices will use the Snapdragon 782G chip. Earlier this month, Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip for high-end phones.
