The new 4K HDR video capture empowered by computational HDR achieves significant improvements in color, contrast, and picture detail, resulting in beautiful photos.
The Snapdragon 780G is powered by the sixth-generation Qualcomm AI engine including the Qualcomm Hexagon 770 processor, which enables up to 12 trillion operations per second (12 TOPS) and two times the AI performance of the previous generation platform. Almost all connectivity, video calls, and voice calls are now powered by AI, enabling use cases such as AI-based noise suppression and better AI-based voice assistant interactions. The platform is further enhanced by a dedicated low-power AI processor integrated into the second-generation Qualcomm Sensor Hub that can support audio processing.
The overall optimized Snapdragon 780G supports some of the Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming features. Snapdragon Elite Gaming makes it easy for handheld gamers around the world to play all the headline 3A games, thanks to several features that are available for the first time on mobile, including GPU driver updates, ultra-smooth gaming experience, and True 10-bit HDR gaming. These select features supported by the Snapdragon 780G will also drive OEMs to develop devices that support next-generation gaming experiences and enable more consumers to enjoy next-generation gaming.
The Snapdragon 780G also features an optimized Snapdragon X53 5G modem and RF system with peak download speeds of 3.3Gbps in the Sub-6GHz band. The platform brings the top Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth audio features supported by the Snapdragon 888 to the Snapdragon 7 Series for the first time, including the recently introduced Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound.
With Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 Mobile Connectivity System, the Snapdragon 780G is capable of supporting unprecedented gigabit-class Wi-Fi 6 speeds (up to 3.6Gbps), VR-class low latency, and robust capacity. Not only that, but along with the positive global progress in the 6GHz spectrum, the Snapdragon 780G’s support for Wi-Fi 6E further extends the combination of these advanced features to the powerful 6GHz band. Besides, the Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound technology suite provides certification of Qualcomm Technologies’ advanced audio features and system-level optimizations for a new end-to-end listening experience.
