Back in March, Qualcomm announced its 5nm Snapdragon 780G chipset and now the company is introducing a slightly trimmed down version called Snapdragon 778G. The major difference is that the 778G is built on a 6nm node instead of Samsung’s 5nm seen on the 780G.
The new 778G brings a Kryo 670 CPU paired with an Adreno 642L GPU and a Spectra 570L ISP. The chipset also brings an integrated Snapdragon X53 5G Modem-RF which delivers mmWave and sub-6 5G connectivity support. Qualcomm’s triple ISP allows you to capture photos and videos from wide, ultrawide, and telephoto cams simultaneously.
