Qualcomm, the leading mobile chipset manufacturer, has recently announced the release of its new Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset. This latest addition to Qualcomm’s lineup promises to deliver significant performance and power efficiency improvements to upper mid-range devices. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the features and specifications of the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.
Firstly, it’s worth noting that there was no Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 or Snapdragon 7 Gen 2. This latest offering boasts a 2.91GHz main Kryo CPU core, which, along with the whole 1+3+4 CPU package, delivers over a 50% performance improvement compared to the SD7Gen1. The Adreno GPU is unnamed but promises a 2x performance increase, with efficiency gains at a more modest 13% in different situations.
One of the significant platform features of the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is Auto Variable Rate Shading and Volumetric Rendering. This feature will allow for more efficient rendering of graphics-intensive applications, providing a better overall user experience. The ISP (Image Signal Processor) is also upgraded to an 18-bit Triple ISP, which will allow for improved low-light photography by stacking 30 images into one. Additionally, the chipset supports 200MP sensors, as well as HDR video capture with triple exposure from two cameras simultaneously.
Better battery life
Qualcomm’s AI Engine has also seen significant improvements, offering 2x improved performance and 40% battery savings per watt. This will allow for more efficient and powerful AI applications on devices using the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset.
Download speeds up to 4.4 Gbps
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 uses the Snapdragon X62 5G Modem-RF System, which offers download speeds of up to 4.4 Gbps. This new chipset also brings the 4G/5G Dual-Sim Dual Active (DSDA) feature to the Snapdragon 7 series, allowing for two SIM cards to be active at the same time.
Devices running on the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 will arrive as early as this month. While there are no detailed specs of the CPU or GPU package yet, it’s clear that Qualcomm has put a lot of effort into making this chipset a significant upgrade over its predecessors. With improved performance, power efficiency, and new features, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is sure to be a popular choice for upper mid-range smartphones in the coming months.
