Qualcomm has unveiled its latest Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 Mobile Platform, with new capabilities for on-device AI enhanced experiences, mobile gaming, photography, videography and audio, among other uses. The company said the chip provides a CPU and GPU performance and power efficiency that can enable fast and nonstop gaming, dynamic low-light photography and 4K HDR videography, AI-enhanced experiences and high-speed 5G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
For gaming, the chip can bring content in focus at full resolution and the scene’s background at a lower resolution. Volumetric Rendering brings game realism and Snapdragon Sound with Qualcomm aptX brings lossless music streaming and lag-free sound for gaming.
For photographers, the chip sports, among other 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.
Regarding AI, the integrated Qualcomm AI Engine ensures AI-enhanced experiences. Also featured is the Qualcomm Sensing Hub with a dedicated AI processor, enabling user activity recognition and acoustic scene detection, for example. The AI Super Resolution intelligently upscales game scenes or photos for superior visual quality from a low-resolution image.
Looking at performance, the chip delivers download speeds of up to 4.4 Gbps with power efficiency. For the first time in the Snapdragon 7-series, the platform includes support for 5G/4G Dual-Sim Dual Active (DSDA) so consumers can use two Sims when traveling or to separate their work and personal communications. The Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 Mobile Connectivity System ensures fast and extremely responsive Wi-Fi at up to 3.6 Gbps.
Qualcomm noted that the new Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 will be adopted by brands such as Redmi and Realme, with commercial device launches expected this month.
