Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. announced the new Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 Mobile Platform — delivering premium experiences brand new to the Snapdragon 7-series. Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 offers exceptional CPU and GPU performance fueling swift, nonstop gaming, dynamic low-light photography and 4K HDR videography, AI enhanced experiences and high-speed 5G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Improved Performance Over Snapdragon 7 Gen 1
Qualcomm claims that the new mobile platform is equipped with the Kryo CPU, boasting peak speeds up to 2.91GHz, for over 50% improved performance. The Qualcomm Adreno GPU provides 2x improved performance. Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 achieves up to 13% improved power efficiency across the system for extended daily use. On-device AI is also integrated across the entire platform.
Supported by select Snapdragon Elite Gaming features like Auto Variable Rate Shading (VRS), Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 optimizes power and performance by rendering content in focus at full resolution and the scene’s background at a lower resolution.
Volumetric Rendering also adds unrivaled realism to game scenes with
particle graphics like fog and smoke. Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 features Snapdragon Sound with Qualcomm aptX for lossless music streaming and lag-free sound for gaming.
Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 features an 18-bit Triple ISP, allowing users to capture in mega low light mode—snapping 30 images and merging the best parts into one shot for brighter, clearer, more colorful photos after dark.
Consumers can capture over 4,000x more camera data for better dynamic range with vivid color and clarity. Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 supports up to 200MP photo capture and staggered HDR video capture with triple exposure from two cameras simultaneously.
The integrated Qualcomm AI Engine, which has over 2x improved AI performance with 40% better performance per Watt than its predecessor, offers AI-enhanced experiences for utmost simplicity.
Also featured is the Qualcomm Sensing Hub with a dedicated AI processor, powering contextually aware use cases such as user activity recognition and acoustic scene detection. The new mobile platform enables AI Super Resolution to upscale game scenes or photos for superior visual quality from a low-resolution image (1080p to 4K).
Powered by the Snapdragon X62 5G Modem-RF System, Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 offers blazing download speeds of up to 4.4 Gbps and outstanding power compared to 14-bit efficiency — supporting more networks, frequencies, and bandwidths globally.
For the first time in the 7-series, this platform includes support for 5G/4G Dual-Sim Dual Active (DSDA) so consumers can utilize two SIMs when traveling or to separate their work and personal communications.
Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 features the Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 Mobile Connectivity System to deliver fast, responsive Wi-Fi—at up to 3.6 Gbps.
