Here’s how some mid-range smartphones of 2023 will be eaten

Qualcomm has unveiled a brand new processor for our future mid-range smartphones. Here is the Snapdragon 782G, designated as the worthy replacement for the Snapdragon 778 G+.

The Snapdragon 778G+ sees the arrival of its successor, the Snapdragon 782G, just presented in a official press release. During 2022, the 778G+ was seen several times in well-known mid-range phones from our services: the Nothing phone (1) and Honor 70, in particular.

Inevitably, the Snapdragon 782G is also intended for smartphones sailing around 500 euros. However, the overall performance gain is not pharaonic from one generation to another. These are rather small adjustments to optimize an already well-established chip, which had brought us satisfaction during our tests.

A slightly improved high-performance core

The manufacturing process therefore remains the same from one processor to another: 6 Nm of engraving. This SoC is based on the same number and nature of cores: four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.9 GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and one Cortex-A78 core clocked at 2.7 GHz.

Dedicated to heavier and more demanding tasks, the latter has for the occasion been overclocked thanks to an increased clock rate — from 2.5 to 2.7 GHz. Qualcomm also specifies that the performance of the CPU and the GPU have been improved by 5% on one side, and 10% on the other. Not enough to upset the experience, but it’s always taken.

5G and Bluetooth 5.2

The Snapdragon 782G is capable of supporting a 200 megapixel sensor, but also a Full HD+ screen with a refresh rate of 144 Hz or a 4K screen with a frequency of 60 Hz. The Snapdragon X53 modem also makes it compatible with 5G, including mmWave frequency bands and 5G sub-6.

You also have to rely on Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5.2. According SamMobile, the Honor 80 could be one of the first smartphones to take advantage of it. Earlier this month, Qualcomm took advantage of its annual conference to reveal the next processor that will equip high-end smartphones to come, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which we were also able to test.

The race for the first phone to come out with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is on. Many brands have communicated in this sense just after the announcement of Qualcomm.
