The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 was unveiled at Qualcomm’s Dev Summit 2022 in Hawaii, and after anticipating a more specialized chipset for the Galaxy S23 that undoubtedly has the last name Pro and a little more power, they now reveal what will be the mobile processor of the best-selling smartphones on the market for the upcoming months with the new Snapdragon 782G.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G, which the San Diego corporation just made public in a press release, directly on its website and without much fanfare or media attention, despite the fact that we are undoubtedly dealing with one of the best-selling chipsets in its whole lineup.
Actuality, we only have a partial understanding of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G. And based on its primary technical features, it appears that we are dealing with an updated version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G. Which was introduced in 2021.
Unsurprisingly, the company confirm that the new Snapdragon 782G will be able to increase the power of its CPU by up to 5% compared to a 778G Plus. Additionally, the graphics performance will be further increased with up to 10% faster GPU on this new model.

Gizchina News of the week
Regarding the architecture, we will observe the three jumps that have been occurring recently in a configuration of 1 + 3 + 4 with 64-bit cores, as well as the addition of a Snapdragon X53 modem with 5G SA/NSA capacity and wireless connectivity that includes Bluetooth 5.2 LE with aptX, Wi-Fi 6E tri-band, NFC, and GPS with GLONASS, NavIC, Beidou, GPS, QZSS, and Galileo.
The complete CPU and GPU specifications for this Snapdragon 782G are below. In case you want to know everything about that processor:
- 1x Kryo 670 Prime @ 2.7 GHz (based on ARM Cortex-A78).
- 3x Kryo 670 Gold @ 2.2 GHz (based on ARM Cortex-A78).
- 4x Kryo 670 Silver @ 1.9 GHz (based on ARM Cortex-A55).
- Adreno 642L GPU, with APIs OpenGL® ES 3.2, OpenCL™ 2.0 FP, Vulkan® 1.1.
This chipset is made with TSMC’s 6-nanometer lithography and supports next-generation LPDDR5 RAM up to 3,200 MHz, Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ fast charging, and up to 200-megapixel cameras with Qualcomm Spectra ISP, which can manage triple cameras (MFNR, ZSL, 30 fps) up to 22 MP. The supported screen resolutions are up to 4K at 60 hertz refresh. Or up to FHD 1,080p at 144 hertz refresh, with HDR10 + and up to 10 bit color depths.
Unquestionably a good processor for the mid-range, with a reliable and tested architecture that didn’t require much more to keep its position as one of the top-selling smartphones in the Android catalog. While the exact launch date is unknown, we expect that it will appear very soon in numerous devices. From realme, Xiaomi, Redmi, and other mobile devices. We don’t have official information, but it will sure appear very soon.

In a presentation that lasts an hour and a half and is full of information during the Snapdragon Summit 2022. Qualcomm unveiled the second generation of its most expensive chip – Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Oppo Find X6 Pro will be among the first devices to use the new chip. We should mention that several bosses from Xiaomi, OPPO, IQOO, and Samsung have intervened.
On the CPU front, it will have a powerful main core with an ARM Cortex-X3 architecture that operates at up to 3.2 GHz, along with 4 additional performance cores that run at up to 2.8 GHz and 3 efficiency cores that operate at up to 2 GHz. Although there wouldn’t be much of a speed increase over the Snapdragon Gen1. There would be a new architecture and improved efficiency. Which would be about 25% more efficient than the last generation. A 25% performance boost will also be provided by the Adreno 740 GPU. This chip should provide about 30% higher performance than the new Snapdragon 782G chip.
