Qualcomm unveils 6Nm Snapdragon 778G targeting mid-to-end smartphones


Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 778G5G mobile platform (hereinafter referred to as Snapdragon 778G), which has improved performance and power efficiency by applying 6-nano (NM) process technology. The Snapdragon 778G is a product for high-tier in the mid-to-end smartphone market and is expected to be supplied to mid-range smartphone makers along with the Snapdragon 780G announced in March 2021.

Qualcomm’s mobile platform includes the Snapdragon 8 series targeting high-end smartphones and the Snapdragon 7 series targeting mid-range smartphones. In the Snapdragon 8 series, which is applicable to high-end models, Snapdragon 888 is targeting the 5G market. For mid-to-end products, the 780G, which was launched last March along with the Snapdragon 778G announced this year, is expected to expand the choice of smartphone makers to the next level.

The Snapdragon 778G mobile platform is characterized by a reduction in power consumption while enhancing performance by applying the 6-nanometer (Nm) process. Running at 2.4GHz, the 64-bit processor enhances the overall performance of the Qualcomm Cryo CPU by up to 40%, while the Adreno 642 LGPU offers 40% faster graphics rendering performance compared to the previous generation. Qualcomm said.

Image capture is done by the Spectra 570L Image Signal Processor (ISP) image processor, which supports wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, and zoom. With the triple image sensor, you can take up to three photos or videos at once and merge the captured images into one image. Additionally, high-quality video recording is possible using 4K HDR10 + with dynamic metadata.

It should also be noted that the AI ​​function is improved. The Snapdragon 778G features a hexagon 770 processor and a 6th generation Qualcomm AI engine. Using it, it provides artificial intelligence-based noise suppression or better camera experience in the process of voice or video calls. In addition, a second-generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub was incorporated, incorporating a low-power AI processor used for situation perception.

Important Communication and Connectivity Functions in Mobile Phones Snapdragon X53 5G Modem-RF System. The X53 modem supports millimeter-wave (mmWave) and sub-6 5G and can download data up to 3.7 Gbps. In the case of wireless LAN, data transmission up to 2.9Gbps ​​is supported and Bluetooth 5.2 function is installed.

VRS (variable-rate shading) and Snapdragon Elite gaming functions are areas where smartphone games are expected to improve performance. VRS allows you to deploy and group shaded pixels in different game scenes to reduce the amount of work on the GPU, thereby reducing the power consumption, and the game Quick Touch included in Snapdragon Elite Gaming has a 20% faster touch input.

“Snapdragon 778G was developed to address the growing demand from global OEMs for more platform options in the high-range of mid-range products,” said Kedar Kondab, Qualcomm’s Vice President of Product Management. “We are adding many latest premium technologies and features to our high-end models to provide wider access to the next generation experience.”
