Qualcomm announces the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset to launch, which is packed with premium features.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 series is highly popular and widely used to power mid-range and sometimes upper mid-range phones.
The Anuttu benchmark score of the highly popular 7 series lies between 200000 to 400000, making it one of the best chipsets for mid-rangers and even upper mid-range.
Another reason behind their popularity is the 5G support and excellent download/upload speed.
Now the company has decided to launch a new chipset under the same 7 series but with a new naming convention. The company has officially announced the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, and most of its specifications are available in the public domain.
Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Overview
The new chipset comes with 3 X Cortex A710 cores clocked at 2.36GHz, 1X Cortex A710 Prime core clocked at 2.4GHZ, and 4 X Cortex A510 cores clocked at 1.8GHz making the maximum CPU clock speed up to 2.4GHz.
It is packed with Adreno GPU for better performance.
In addition to this, it is powered by Qualcomm’s 7th Gen AI engine, which is the first in the 7 series making it one of the most powerful chipsets in the series.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Fabrication
This Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset is the best in the 7 series when it comes to fabrication. It comes with the latest 4nm fabrication process.
Samsung’s 4nm process will make it more power efficient and optimized when compared with its predecessor, which is based on 6nm or more fabrication. The 778G is the only one having 5nm.
The official Anutu Benchmark score of the 7 Gen is not revealed or tested yet, but some rumors say it is around 170000 to 180000, which is quite low.
However, some experts claim that it will perform better as it will become optimized after usage. However, the new 7th Gen AI engine and Adreno GPU will give a mid-range phone decent performance.
Due to 4nm fabrication, the overall performance will be highly optimized.
Also, the support for up to 16GB of LPDDR5 Ram will not disappoint a user in terms of a lag-free, smooth experience.
In terms of connectivity, everything is good, and in some aspects, it is outstanding.
In the case of speed, this processor is the champion. The Snapdragon X52 5G modem will give you a download speed of massive 4.4GBPS.
It also supports the latest Wi-Fi 5E and Bluetooth 5.3, making the wireless connections highly stable and seamless.
Here also, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset has a lot to offer. It is equipped with a familiar Qualcomm Spectra Triple ISP, which supports up to a 200MP lens making the photos more than clear.
When coming to the video part, it supports 4K HDR recording, so an individual will never complain about the video quality.
The support for 10-bit HEIC photos and HEVC videos on 7 Gen 1 powered phones is like a cherry on the cake.
The new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 lies in between the previous 7 series, and overall, the chipset is perfect for mid-range or lower mid-range segments.
However, regarding the competition in the upper mid-range, we can not say anything as the official Antutu benchmarks scores are not revealed yet.
The chipset will be seen powering the upcoming phones from various brands, including Oppo. It is claimed that Reno 8 Pro+ will feature this chipset.
Overall, the chipset is a complete package for mid-rangers with many enhancements compared with the previous 7 series.
Now it will be interesting to see the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 real performance and efficiency.
