Qualcomm set an event for March 17. The American company is expected to introduce a new chipset from the Snapdragon 7 series, likely Gen 2, as the Gen 1 variant arrived in the spring of 2022.
The name of the new platform is not confirmed, and some rumors are suggesting Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1, but a year later it’s more likely we’ll see Snapdragon 7 Gen 2 to match the Snapdragon 8 flagship naming scheme.
There isn’t much information available about this new chipset, but one leaked Geekbench entry indicates that it has four 1.8GHz Cortex-A510 cores, three 2.5GHz Cortex-A710 cores, and one 2.92GHz Cortex-X2 core. According to one leaker, the GPU has a 580Hz clock speed and is an Adreno 725.
If all the information is accurate, this will mark Snapdragon’s first use of Cortex-X2 on a midrange processor. According to reports, TSMC used the 4nm process technology to construct the base.
