The Latest Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 Brings Some High-End Features to Mid-Range Smartphones

In the modern-day and age, if you are looking for a good mobile SoC, the simplest suggestion is to go for a phone that has a Qualcomm chipset in it. For years, the company has established itself as one of the best in the business, beating the likes of Samsung when it comes to performance. Today, the company has announced the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, and although the naming scheme is somewhat confusing, this is the mid-range chip to beat for the year 2023.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is a budget-oriented chipset with some really compelling features

So what exactly does the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 bring to the table? Well, for starters, this is the first 7 series chipset that offers one prime Cortex-X2 core running at 2.91GHz. You also get three Cortex-A710 cores running at 2.49GHz and four Cortex-A510 cores running at 1.8GHz. This new configuration should deliver better performance not just compared to the older chipset but also better performance when compared to the competitors in the same price range. In some ways, you can expect the performance to match the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is a big leap considering how this chipset will cater to more affordable phones.

Moving on, Qualcomm claims that the GPU performance is also going ot be better. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 will offer up to 2x the performance increase over its predecessor and 25% better performance in benchmarks, especially when compared to the predecessor. The chipmaker has also made bold claims about sustained performance, claiming that the chip can deliver up to 65% better performance when running a 1080p stress test in GFXBench Manhattan 3.0. All the other gaming-oriented features are still here, including offerings such as variable rate shading, volumetric rendering, AI-based super-resolution, and Adreno Frame Motion Engine.

As expected, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 also improves upon machine-learning performance. The company claims you can see up to two times better AI performance, 40% improved AI performance-per-watt and up to 3x performance boost over competitors.

As far as the optics are concerned, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 brings an 18-bit ISP; you can also get up to 200-megapixel camera support,t video super-resolution, 4K recording with HDR and triple exposure, and several low-light features that would be helpful for mobile photographers everywhere.

For network and miscellenous, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is offering a Snapdragon X62 5G mode, Wi-Fi 6E, and of course, aptX Lossless audio for those who prefer wireless headphones.

The last important information is perhaps the most important. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2-powered phones will be debuting later this month, with names such as Redmi and Realme. However, the most exciting part is that the phones are going to cost somewhere from $400 to $600, which is an excellent price range for anyone who is looking for a premium mid-range device. I am really excited to see how the new chipset manages to go up against Exynos 1380-powered Galaxy A54 5G.
