Officially: Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G is the world’s first Snapdragon 780G smartphone. This platform risks repeating the success of the Snapdragon 750G

Xiaomi today released an official teaser dedicated to the Mi 11 Lite 5G smartphones. The image highlights two features of the model: the slim body and the presence of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G SoC. But what is important here?

The fact is that the Snapdragon 780G is Qualcomm’s second single-chip system after Snapdragon 888, built using the norms of a 5-nanometer technological process. It also uses the “1 + 3 + 4” scheme: the CPU is divided into three clusters with one high-performance core, three of the same cores, but operating at a lower frequency, and four energy-efficient cores. An important difference from the Snapdragon 888 is the lack of a Cortex-X1 super core – it is certainly very powerful, but it is rumored to be the source of power consumption and heating issues for the Snapdragon 888. The Snapdragon 780G will not have such problems as all four “powerful The cores are the well-known Cortex-A78. What did it give specifically to Mi 11 Lite 5G? In this case, it was not necessary to invent an innovative and obviously expensive cooling subsystem, like the Mi 11 Ultra, while the Mi 11 Lite 5G is presented by the manufacturer as the thinnest and lightest Xiaomi smartphone from the current list, which, moreover, will not have problems with autonomy. … All in all, moving to a 5nm process and dropping the Cortex-X1 from the SoC could be a very good combination.

The performance of the Snapdragon 780G is also complete. According to official data, the CPU is 45% faster than its predecessor (that is, the Snapdragon 768G CPU), and the Adreno 642 GPU is 50% faster than the Adreno 620 GPU in the same Snapdragon 768G. In general, judging by the data available on the Web, the Snapdragon 780G risks repeating the success of the Snapdragon 750G, but only in upper mid-range smartphones.

Among the other innovations of the Snapdragon 780G, it should be noted the presence of an integrated 5G modem and, for the first time in the series, the Spectra 570 image processor, which allows you to take photos from three cameras simultaneously. The Snapdragon 780G also benefits from updated GPU drivers and Snapdragon Elite Gaming features like the Snapdragon 8 Series platforms.

Specialists of the popular iFixit resource, specializing in the repair of various electronics, disassembled the new Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch and shared the results with the public.

Firstly, the watch scored 6 points on a 10-point scale of maintainability and generally positive reviews for its modular design, easy access to the screen and battery. Experts also praised Apple for keeping the Apple Watch Series 7 compatible with previous generations of bands, right up to the very first original Apple Watch.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
