Snapdragon 780G uses powerful Kryo 670 CPU cores that promise up to 40% performance uplift as compared to the previous generation. Snapdragon 780G is also a built-on 5nm process that should provide battery efficiency.

Snapdragon 780G is paired with Adreno 642 GPU that is slightly better than Adreno 620 on the Snapdragon 765G. Adreno 642 promises 70-75% better performance than Adreno 620. Snapdragon 780G also includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Elite Gaming and promises smoother gaming, gat gaming loading and improved Game Network Latency. The new Soc can also handle handle displays with up to 144Hz refresh rate while Snapdragon 765G can only handle 120Hz displays.

AI performance is also getting a boost in Snapdragon 780G. The Hexagon 770 processor is capable of delivering up to 12 TOPS as compared to 5.5 TOPS in Hexagon 696 used in Snapdragon 765G.

Snapdragon 780G also comes with improvements in the camera department. It has a new Spectra 570 ISP that can handle up to 3 concurrent sensors at the same time. It can support an 84MP single camera (Expandable up to 192MP), 64+20MP dual camera, and 24MP of triple camera. Snapdragon 765G comes with Spectra 355 ISP with support to a 64MP single camera (Expandable up to 192MP) or 22MP dual camera. Both the Sons can record 4K HDR videos.

The new SoC comes with Qualcomm X53 5G Modem and promises 3.3Gbps of peak download speeds in sub-6 5G and up to 1.2Gbps peak download speeds in LTE connection. The company didn’t mention the mmWave capability. Qualcomm X52 5G Modem in SD 765G comes with mmWave 5G. Support and promises up to 3.7Gbps peak download speed in mmWave 5G and up to 1.6Gbps peak download speed in LTE. Removal of mmWave 5G might disappoint a few but it limited to selected regions. Consumers in India shouldn’t worry about it. Snapdragon 780G also comes with WiFI 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 support.
