Today, the Honor 50 series was officially released. As the first model of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, Honor has improved the series’ comprehensive experience such as performance and images through excellent overall optimization.
Let’s talk about this chip first. As Qualcomm’s latest 5G chip, the Snapdragon 778G is based on TSMC’s 6nm process and integrates a 5G modem. The CPU part contains 4 large A78 cores, clocked at 2.4GHz; and 4 small A55 cores, clocked at 1.8GHz.
Through such a combination, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G achieves a better balance between performance and power consumption, and can better cope with daily use, as well as scenarios such as games and large-scale applications.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G also uses Adreno 642L GPU. The official said that compared with Snapdragon 768G, the new product has achieved a 40% increase in CPU and GPU performance.
In recent years, imaging has always been a major focus of Honor, as well as an upgrade point for Qualcomm. Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G is in line with “Big Brother” 888 this time, and also supports three ISPs, which can process three photos or videos at the same time. So for the rear camera, the Snapdragon 778G can handle the three focal lengths of the main camera, super wide-angle and telephoto at the same time. For video creators, the Snapdragon 778G can also process the front and rear cameras at the same time, achieving a video effect similar to that of the anchor with one click.
As mentioned earlier, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G is an integrated 5G SoC. It has a built-in Snapdragon X53 5G modem with FastConnect 6700 mobile connection system. Therefore, in addition to Sub-6GHz and millimeter wave 5G link capabilities, it also supports gigabit-level Wi-Fi 6 and 4K QAM, and supports 160MHz channels in both 5GHz and 6GHz bands to achieve better network performance.
In order to achieve better scheduling of the performance of the whole machine, while increasing the intelligent ability of the system. Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G is equipped with Hexagon 770 processor, which can provide 12TOPS computing power, so that AI-based performance optimization and imaging system have better performance.
As the first product of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, the Honor 50 series not only optimizes all aspects of performance, but also more fully schedules its features.
For example, through the Magic UI 4.2 operating system based on the underlying Android 11 and GPU Turbo X, the Honor 50 series achieves better fluency and makes the user experience smoother.
The Honor 50 series also implements the “one-stop Vlog video shooting” function. Based on the multiple ISP channels at the bottom of the chip, the front and rear cameras, or multiple rear cameras can work at the same time. In this way, the Honor 50 series can meet the needs of users whether it is taking photos, recording videos, or live broadcasts.
Through the above comprehensive optimization of performance, image and other aspects, as the first model of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, the Honor 50 series can be described as full of highlights.
After mainstream games gradually open high frame rate options to this model, it is believed that the Honor 50 series will bring even better performance.
