Straight to the point, snapdragon has been in the mobile chipset game for a long time, and almost have complete control of the highend smartphone chipset market.

Snapdragon

The Snapdragon 778 and 780 are both midrange chipsets with reputable architecture and design, one might say, its Snapdragon’s answer to their midrange smartphone computing struggle.

Where Snapdragon struggles [debatable], is in the midrange segment. An area almost dominated by Mediatek, a company known for their affordable yet solid performing midrange chipsets.

The Snapdragon 778G and 780G may be midrange chipsets alike, but they aren’t stationed the same.

One major difference between the sd 778G and the sd780G is their Nanometer process. The Snapdragon 778G was manufactured on a 6nm process, while the SD780 make use of a much smaller 5nm process.

Though the drop is not huge, but the difference in performance and battery will no doubt be felt by a user.

For reference, the Snapdragon 888 was manufactured on the 5nm process, same as the Snapdragon 780G. Bear in mind that the Snapdragon 888 is a flagship chipset, why the 780G is a midranger.

 

Major highlights of the Snapdragon 778 and 780.

  • 6nm process.

 

 

Mediatek Dimensity 920 and 810 debuts on a 6nm process.

 

 

Snapdragon 780G

The Snapdragon 780G on the other hand, improves on few areas the 778G may have slacked behind, like nm process, max MP camera support and more.

The Snapdragon 780G has the same Qualcomm® Kryo™ 670 CPU, 2.4GHz, 64bit architecture like the sd 778G.

The GPU on the ad 780G sees a slight improvement with a Qualcomm® Adreno™ 642 GPU, instead of the Adreno 642L[Lite] on the sd778.

  • Max On-Device Display: FHD+ @ 144 Hz, HDR10 and HDR10+ support.
  • Single Camera, MFNR, ZSL, 30fps: Up to 84 MP
  • Single Camera: Up to 192 MP
  • Qualcomm® aptX™ audio playback support.
  • Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4+ technology
  • Biometric Authentication: Fingerprint, Iris, Voice, Face
  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X53 5G Modem-RF System, global 5G band support. Max download speed: 3.3GB, max upload speed: 3.6GB.
  • Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 5, 802.11a/b/g/n, Peak WiFi speed of 2.9GB.
  • Bluetooth 5.2, LE Audio Features, Snapdragon Sound™ technology suite
  • NFC support.
  • USB-C, 3.1
  • 5nm process.

 

Though the Snapdragon 778G and the 780G are relatively new chipsets, few devices like the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, Honor 50 Pro, Realme GT master, Motorola Edge Lite and the Xiaomi Mi 11 lite have already launched with these Snapdragon chipsets, and more devices are expected to launch before the final quarter of 2021.

These midrange 5G chipsets are Snapdragon’s way of letting the midrange smartphone market know that, Snapdragon isn’t going to give up this market share to companies like Mediatek without a fight.

What do you think? Is the Snapdragon 778G and 780G a better midrange chipsets than what we have received from mediatek?
