Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 Mobile Platform

Qualcomm announced a mobile chipset bringing some of its high-end flagship features into its Snapdragon 7-series. Cindy Lei, director of product management, told the press the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 mobile platform runs an Adreno GPU delivering a two-times performance boost over its predecessor. She claimed this is the biggest GPU performance leap in the 7-series history.

The chip runs a Kyro CPU which Qualcomm stated doubles peak speeds to 2.91GHz and the platform features an integrated AI engine tipped as delivering a 40% improvement in performance per watt. Qualcomm touted better image capture from an 18-bit Triple ISP compatible with cameras of up to 200MP and HDR video captured from two modules simultaneously. The chip is compatible with mmWave and sub-6GHz bands, delivering peak data rates of 4.4Gb/s in the downlink.

There is also compatibility for dual 5G SIMs, a feature Qualcomm introduced on its flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in 2022. Lei noted variable rate shading was also a new feature for the 7-series which allocates resources to reduce GPU workloads without sacrificing graphical fidelity, a feature she cited as useful for gaming. Qualcomm stated Xiaomi, Redmi, and Realme are preparing to launch devices featuring the platform, with the first expected later this month.
