The Snapdragon 780G has a Kryo 670 CPU which is said to give a “40% performance uplift”. The 768G are based on Cortex-A76 cores which should be a 40% performance increase.

The cores clock only up to 2.4GHz despite being fabricated on a leading node. It matches the big cores of the 888, although the flagship chip also has a Cortex-X1 prime core at 2.84GHz.

It has an Adreno 642 GPU which performance-wise goes between the 855 and the 865. Its drivers can be updated, supports HDR10, and its display can offer 1080p+ panels up to a 144Hz refresh rate.


The Snapdragon 780G supports LPDDR4 RAM at up to 2.1GHz frequency and up to 16GB capacity.
