Over the past year, some upper mid-range phones have used Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset because it delivered performance and efficiency without the expense of the Snapdragon 865. Think of phones like the OnePlus Nord and Pixel 5Both ran the 765G and had impressive experience because they didn’t have the best chip available. Today Qualcomm likely launched the replacement for that chip that will power the next wave of upper-middle schoolers Snapdragon 780G.
The Snapdragon 780G (SM-7350-AB) brings a number of novelties to the 7 series with features like a triple ISP (Triple Camera Shooting!), Qualcomm’s 6th generation AI engine, and WiFi 6. But it’s still much more than that too.
When you buy a phone with the Snapdragon 780G, the WiFi 6 gives you some of the fastest wireless speeds out there. You also get Bluetooth 5.2 and FastConnect 6900 technology. The Spectra 570 ISP can take 3 ounce frames at 25 MP, according to Qualcomm, for better low-light and 4K HDR performance. And for the AI engine, that really just means faster and smarter photography, gaming, etc. This 5nm chip also runs Kryo 670 CPUs with a 40% increase in performance and supports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Elite Gaming.
So yeah, if we’re getting a Pixel 6 and Google isn’t shooting at the moon with specs, this could be the chip it’s running on.
