Qualcomm has recently released the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset over the weekend. This chipset is built on the 4nm process technology and is designed to provide phone manufacturers with a capable platform at a lower budget compared to the Gen 8 chips.
Unlike other Snapdragon 7 series chips, the CPU of the 7s is less powerful and the ISP is also less impressive, indicating a slightly lower positioning overall. There have been rumors suggesting that the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 could be featured in the upcoming Redmi Note 13 series, scheduled for this month.
The name of the chipset may be confusing as there were no previous first-gen 7s or second-gen Snapdragon 7. Furthermore, the meaning of the “s” in the name is unclear, but it clearly signifies cut-down specifications. The CPU consists of four cores running at 2.4 GHz for performance and an additional four cores at 1.95 GHz for efficiency.
Although the Adreno GPU specification is unspecified, it can support FHD+ resolution at 144 Hz. The FastConnect 6700 connectivity platform is a step back from the 6900 found on the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, limiting the peak DL speed to just 2.9 Gbps. The supported Bluetooth version is limited to 5.2, which still offers low-energy sound support.
The Spectra ISP can support a smartphone with a single camera of up to 200 MP and enables 4K video recording at 30 fps. The memory is LPDRR5 at 3200 MHz and other features include USB-C 3.1 and Quick Charge 4+.
Qualcomm has not officially announced a timeframe for the release of devices featuring this new chipset.
