The Snapdragon 782G (SM7325-AF), Qualcomm’s latest SoC, is a minor update to last year’s Snapdragon 778G+. Don’t confuse SD778/SD778G+ with the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which is the real successor of SD778/SD778G+. As usual, Qualcomm’s naming system is more confusing than the last.
Aside from a small improvement over its predecessor, this chipset works exactly the same as its predecessor. The Snapdragon 782G is a 6nm chipset like the SD778G+. It has an Adreno 642L GPU and an 8-core Kryo 670 CPU.
The CPU has a slightly faster clock speed than the 778G+, but the core layout is the same. One Kryo 670 Prime (Cortex-A78) core is up to 200MHz faster and runs at 2.7GHz, while three Kryo 670 Gold (also Cortex-A78) cores can reach up to 2.2GHz and four Kryo 670 Silver (Cortex-A55) cores can reach up to 1.9GHz.
Higher clock speed makes the CPU 5% faster and GPU 10% faster than Snapdragon 778G+. The diagram below shows all of the technical information about the chipset.
The 782G has the same Fused AI Accelerator architecture, the same Qualcomm Spectra ISP with triple 14-bit ISPs, and the same support for up to 2 gigapixels per second in processing speed and up to 200MP resolution. Using Quick Charge 4+, it is charged to 50 percent in 15 minutes.
The same Snapdragon X53 modem that supports Sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequencies also provide integrated Bluetooth® 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6 at up to 2.9 Gbps.
Qualcomm hasn’t said anything publically about upcoming smartphones yet, but the Honor 80 is the first smartphone to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 782G engine. It will also appear in the next generations of premium mid-range smartphones from Xiaomi, Samsung, and other companies. It will definitely get on phones in the A series, like the Galaxy A53’s replacement and others.
