Huawei Nova 10 Pro review - High-end smartphone with 60 MP selfie camera
Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 4G | Qualcomm Adreno 642L | 6.78" | 191 g
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 4G (SDM778G 4G Mobile Platform) is a fast mid-range ARM-based SoC largely found on Android tablets and smartphones. It integrates eight cores (octa-core) divided into two clusters. A fast performance cluster with four cores based on the ARM Cortex-A78 architecture with up to 2.4 GHz and a power efficiency cluster with four small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz. Depending on the workload only single clusters or all cores can run at different clock speeds. In contrast to the Snapdragon 778 5G, the 778G 4G does not offer a 5G modem, but only supports 4G/LTE.
Thanks to the new Cortex-A78 cores, the CPU performance increases by up to 40% compared to the old Snapdragon 768G according to Qualcomm. In our benchmarks, the 778G is able to reach the performance of the old high end chip Kirin 990.
The integrated Qualcomm Adreno 642L offers a 40% higher performance compared to the old Adreno 620 in the predecessor. This is partly thanks to the fast memory controller with LPDDR5-3200 support.
The integrated 6th gen AI engine called Hexagon 770 offers a 2x improvement and up to 12 TOPS of performance. The Spectra 570 ISP (image signal processor) supports up to three cameras. The satellite system supports all major standards like Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS and GPS.
The G specifies an optimized SoC for gaming and e.g. Qualcomm offers updates for the graphics driver.
The Snapdragon 778G is manufactured in the modern 6 nm process at TSMC (vs the 5LPE of the 780G).
