Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 Full Specifications and Introduction
Qualcomm has announced the release of its new Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 mobile platform, promising a completely revamped and improved experience for its Snapdragon 7 Series. This latest offering from Qualcomm boasts superior CPU and GPU performance, long-lasting smooth gaming experiences, dynamic dark-light photo capture, 4K HDR video capture, AI-enabled enhanced experiences, and high-speed 5G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 is a platform with revolutionary performance that will deliver exceptional experiences to users. The Qualcomm Kryo CPU is clocked at up to 2.91 GHz (Arm Cortex X2-based), offering more than a 50% performance improvement compared to the Snapdragon 7 Gen1. The platform also has three Kryo (Arm Cortex A710-based) performance cores clocked at 2.49GHz and four Kryo (Arm Cortex A510-based) efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
The Adreno GPU performance has also seen a two-fold increase, with Adreno 725 clocked at 580MHz. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 also achieves up to a 13% overall system power efficiency improvement, supporting longer-lasting daily use. The entire platform is integrated with endpoint-side AI capabilities.
In terms of gaming, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 supports some of the Snapdragon Elite Gaming features, such as Adaptive Variable Resolution Rendering (Auto VRS). Auto VRS optimizes power efficiency and performance by rendering focused content at full resolution and rendering scene backgrounds using lower resolutions.
Stereo rendering adds lifelike realism to particle graphics game graphics such as smoke. The platform also supports Snapdragon Sound and Snapdragon Listen to technology with Qualcomm aptX for lossless music streaming and a lag-free gaming audio experience.
The camera features an 18-bit triple ISP that supports capturing 30 frames at once and blending the best results into a single photo, enabling users to take brighter, sharper, and more colorful photos in ultra-low light mode, even in low light conditions.
Now users can capture up to 4,000+ times more image data compared to 14-bit ISP, supporting the ultimate dynamic range for rich colors and high definition. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 supports up to 200-megapixel photo capture and single-frame progressive HDR video capture with triple exposure from both cameras simultaneously.
Artificial intelligence is another area that has seen significant improvements in the Snapdragon 7+ Gen2. Compared to its predecessor platform, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 integrates Qualcomm’s AI engine with more than two times the performance and 40% more energy efficiency.
The platform supports AI-enabled enhanced experiences for outstanding simplicity. It also features a Qualcomm Sensor Hub with an integrated dedicated AI processor to support context-aware use cases such as user activity recognition and acoustic scene detection. The platform also supports AI Super Resolution, which intelligently brings lower-resolution gaming graphics and photos to higher quality (from 1080p to 4K) for great visuals.
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 features the Snapdragon X62 5G modem and RF system, delivering ultra-fast download speeds of up to 4.4Gbps and outstanding energy efficiency, supporting a wider range of network coverage, bands, and bandwidths globally.
The 7+ Gen2 is the first Snapdragon 7 Series platform to support 5G+5G/5G+4G dual SIM (DSDA), allowing consumers to use two SIM cards when traveling or to separate users’ work and personal communications. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 also features the Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 mobile connectivity system with speeds up to 3.6Gbps, delivering blazing-fast, responsive Wi-Fi.
In conclusion, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen2 from Qualcomm promises to bring some of the most in-demand flagship features to its Snapdragon-7 series, making it a highly anticipated platform for upcoming sub-flagship smartphones.
