Smartphones with the new Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 will be released, this month.

March 17, 2023 (6 months ago)

Recently, Qualcomm unveiled its new higher mid-range Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset. There was no Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 or Snapdragon 7 Gen 2, so you didn’t miss them. Only a few devices featured the original Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, but presumably things will improve now.

Significant improvements in performance and battery efficiency are promised by the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2. The primary Kryo CPU core has a 2.91GHz clock speed, and the 1+3+4 CPU package outperforms the SD7 Gen 1 by over 50%.

On the other side, an unnamed Adreno GPU claims a 2x improvement in performance. Efficiency gains in different scenarios range from 13% to a tad less.

As is customary with Qualcomm statements, neither the CPU nor the GPU package are given in-depth technical specifications. The good news is that we won’t have to wait long to find out because products using the silicon should start showing up as early as this month.

Other platform features include Auto Variable Rate Shading, which uses less power and resources by rendering gaming images in the foreground in high resolution and the background in low resolution. Additionally, the Volumetric Rendering, which made its premiere with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform, is present.

Additionally, the ISP benefits. By stacking 30 images together, it has been upgraded to 18-bit Triple ISP for better low-light shooting. Additionally enabled are 200MP sensors and simultaneous HDR video capture with triple exposure from two cameras.

Qualcomm’s AI Engine provides 40% more battery savings per watt and a 2x improvement in performance when it comes to AI.

The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2’s Snapdragon X62 5G Modem-RF System, with download speeds of up to 4.4 Gbps, is used for communication. More importantly, however, the 4G/5G Dual-Sim Dual Active (DSDA) feature will eventually be accessible on phones powered by the 7 series.
