The chipset can handle up to a 192-megapixel single camera or a dual 36-megapixel camera setup. It also supports a display resolution of up to 2520×1080 pixels with a refresh rate of up to 144Hz.
What’s New on latest processor
The Snapdragon 782G processor is designed to deliver high performance and power efficiency for gaming and entertainment on Android devices. It also supports Qualcomm’s Elite Gaming features, such as Variable Rate Shading, Game Quick Touch, and Game Smoother. The chipset also supports Qualcomm’s AI Engine, which can perform up to 15 TOPS of AI tasks. The chipset also supports Qualcomm’s FastConnect 6900 system, which can provide up to 3.6 Gbps of peak Wi-Fi speed and Bluetooth audio features, such as aptX Adaptive and Qualcomm Broadcast Audio.
The Snapdragon 782G processor is likely to compete with other chipsets in its class, such as the MediaTek Dimensity 920, the MediaTek Dimensity 810, the Samsung Exynos 1080, and the Samsung Exynos 980. According to some benchmarks, such as AnTuTu and Geekbench, the Snapdragon 782G processor performs better than the MediaTek Dimensity 920 and the MediaTek Dimensity 810, but worse than the Samsung Exynos 1080 and the Samsung Exynos 980. The Snapdragon 782G processor has an advantage in GPU frequency and memory bandwidth over the MediaTek Dimensity chipsets, but it has a disadvantage in CPU clock speed and L3 cache size over the Samsung Exynos chipsets.
