Revealed Qualcomm announced its new Snapdragon 778G mobile processor that supports 5G networks, which is supposed to power high-end smartphones in the second quarter.
The processor is used in the upcoming smartphones from Honor, Motorola, Oppo, Xiaomi, iQoo and Realme.
Snapdragon 778G is designed to deliver everything from advanced mobile gaming to accelerated artificial intelligence.
The chip includes three image signal processors or ISPs to capture three photos or videos simultaneously via a wide lens, ultra-wide lens, and telephoto lens.
Users can record from all three lenses simultaneously, allowing them to capture the best aspects of each and merge them automatically into one professional-quality video.
Users can also shoot with 4K HDR10 + for video to capture over a billion shades of color.
Snapdragon 778G also supports HDR high dynamic range image sensors so that you can get computational HDR video, which provides significant improvements in color, contrast and detail when capturing videos.
Qualcomm also announced additional chips at an event in San Diego, California.
The platform features a sixth-generation Qualcomm AI engine with a Hexagon 770 processor that delivers up to 12 TOPS and twice the performance improvement on a per-watt basis compared to its predecessor.
Almost all communications, video calls and phone calls are now optimized by AI to enable use cases such as AI-based noise cancellation and best AI-based camera experiences.
The platform also uses the second-generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub, which integrates a dedicated low-power AI processor for context-aware use cases.
And when it comes to gaming, the platform offers select Snapdragon Elite Gaming features, including Variable Rate Shader VRS and Game Quick Touch, two features that have now arrived on the 7th series processors.
Qualcomm previously announced these features with the Snapdragon 888 series in December, and the Game Quick Touch feature reduces and improves touch latency at the millisecond level.
The Snapdragon 778G includes the built-in Snapdragon X535G modem, and Qualcomm said the Snapdragon 778G balances performance and energy efficiency.
