Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G vs 780G vs 768G vs 750G Specifications Compared – A switch in the fabrication process, not much else

Back in March, I reported about the leaked SM7350, which was expected to be the Snapdragon 775G. That was partially inaccurate, with it turning out to be the impressive Snapdragon 780G.

However, Qualcomm has now just launched the Snapdragon 778G offering minor differences between the Snapdragon 780G.

The main difference appears to be the manufacturing process. Qualcomm has switched from the 5nm Samsung process to 6nm TSMC for the new SD780G

The CPU design and spec is identical, but the GPU is slightly different, claiming to be the Adreno 642L rather than Adreno 642. What that means in real-world performance remains to be seen.

Interestingly, the SD768G has a superior memory specification with support for LP-DDR5 memory up to 3200 MHz. However, as this is only supported for, what you get in your phone could very well be identical to phones equipped with the SD780G

Phones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G is expected to arrive in smartphones launching in Q2 2021. Motorola, Realme, iQOO, Xiaomi, Honor, and OPPO are among the list of OEMs who have confirmed to launch a phone with Snapdragon 778G.

Honor has confirmed that its upcoming Honor 50 series will feature the new chipset.

It is worth remembering that the Snapdragon 768G had a very limited release, it was only used on the Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition for an entire year. It is only in the past couple of months that Oppo, Vivo and ZTE have made announcements with phones using this chipset.
