This month, smartphones equipped with a new chipset should appear on the market Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2. Redmi and Realme are among the first brands that will use this chip in their devices.
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 is a step below the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, so you can expect a high level of performance from it. The company claims that the new chipset has a 50% increase in CPU power compared to its predecessor, the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip. It consists of eight cores (maximum frequency up to 2.91 GHz) and is built on a 4 nm process. You can also expect a two-fold increase in Adreno GPU performance and a 13% increase in energy efficiency.
The chipset allows devices to take pictures with a resolution of up to 200 MP, record 4K HDR video and shoot simultaneously with two camera modules. There is support for 18-bit Triple ISP technology, so you can count on better photos in low-light conditions.
Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 supports Wi-Fi 6 and 6E modules (download speed up to 3.6 Gbit/s), Bluetooth 5.3, and also has a 5G modem X62 (download speed via mobile network up to 4.4 Gbit/s). A number of technologies that should improve the gameplay are also provided, including Auto Variable Rate Shading and Volumetric Rendering. The chipset allows you to install QHD+ displays with a frequency of up to 120 Hz in smartphones.
