American chipmaker Qualcomm will unveil its new mobile processor, which will become part of the Snapdragon 700 series, from day to day. It will be called the Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G 5G and will be installed in mid-range smartphones with support for fifth generation cellular networks.
Despite the fact that the official premiere of Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G 5G is still ahead, detailed characteristics of the new chip have already been leaked to the Network. The fact is that our foreign colleagues from the German blog Winfuture.de had at their disposal a press release from Qualcomm, dedicated to the release of a new processor.
From the official release of Qualcomm it follows that the Snapdragon 780G 5G is made using a 5-nanometer technological process, like the flagship Snapdragon 888. The new chip includes two Cortex-A78 cores with a clock frequency of 2.4 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores with a clock frequency 1.8 GHz. The proprietary accelerator Adreno 642 is responsible for graphics processing. The chipset also received a dedicated sixth-generation AI module Hexagon 770, which is responsible for processing tasks using artificial intelligence. And the Snapdragon X53 5G modem is responsible for connecting to fifth generation cellular networks. There is also support for Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and 4K video.
The first commercial devices based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G 5G will hit the market in the second quarter of 2021. Chances are good that the new chipset will debut in the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G. The processor will be produced by the semiconductor division of the South Korean giant Samsung.
