As you might be aware, most new phones now ship with at least three cameras on the rear case (usually some combination of main, ultra-wide, telephoto, or macro depending on the manufacturer) and the triple Image Signal Processor technology allows images to be shot using all three lenses simultaneously.
Qualcomm says its feature delivers three different images captured by zoom, wide, and ultra-wide lenses at once. That will allow users to get more choice after pressing the shutter button once.
This technology has been available in Qualcomm’s priciest chipsets for a little while now, but has been something those who avoid coughing up £1,000+ for a new phone will have missed out on.

Along with the camera getting a boost, there’s also good news for gamers as this new chipset is designed to cope with the most memory-hungry titles. The Snapdragon 780G should deliver desktop-level capabilities including updateable GPU drivers, ultra-smooth gaming, and True 10-bit HDR gaming, Qualcomm has claimed.
Finally, you shouldn’t have any issues downloading file and streaming content on the screen. That’s because the Snapdragon 780G also features an optimised Snapdragon X535G Modem-RF System with peak download speeds of 3.3 Gbps.
This platform also includes the premium Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth audio features that are found on Qualcomm’s premier Snapdragon 888 chip.
So when will see the first 780G 5G-powered phones in shops? Qualcomm says that the first commercial devices based on Snapdragon 780G are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2021. So, you should be able to pick-up a 780G-equipped phone this summer.
