Launch Of The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 For Budget-Friendly Phones
September 18, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Tech News
The 4nm process technology-based Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 processor was presented by Qualcomm over the weekend. This chipset is designed specifically for smartphone manufacturers looking for a strong foundation appropriate for more affordable handsets than the Gen 8 CPUs.
The Snapdragon 7s’ CPU is less powerful than that of its Snapdragon 7 series contemporaries, and the ISP (Image Signal Processor) likewise performs less admirably, suggesting a little worse overall ranking.
There have been rumor’s that the Redmi Note 13 series, which will be released later this month, will debut at the same time as the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2.
Due to the lack of a Snapdragon 7 first-generation or second-generation model, the naming system is still unclear. Additionally, the “s”‘s significance is unknown, but it obviously denotes less requirements.
The CPU is built with four performance cores running at 2.4 GHz and four efficiency cores running at 1.95 GHz.
Despite the fact that the Adreno GPU’s precise model is unknown, it is mentioned that it supports FHD+ resolution at a quick 144Hz refresh rate.
The FastConnect 6700 platform’s connection capabilities are inferior to those of the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2’s 6900 platform.
As a result, the maximum download speed is 2.9 Gbps, and Bluetooth is only supported up to version 5.2, which still supports low-energy audio communication.
The Spectra ISP can handle smartphones with up to 200 MP single cameras and provides 4K video capture at 30 frames per second. LPDDR5 memory is configured, running at 3200 MHz, while Quick Charge 4+ and compatibility for USB-C are further features.
When the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 will be available on Android phones has not yet been announced by Qualcomm. Maybe the first Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 phone is closer than we believe as the Redmi Note 13 series will be released later this month.
