When the Galaxy S23 series arrived, it left a very positive impression with us, as its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip seems to be on par with the iPhone 14’s Apple A15 processor, at least in the multi-core results, despite being clocked lower.
Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 performance benchmarks
This same sustained performance efficiency has now moved to Qualcomm’s newest 7-series processor, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 that will be in many performance midrangers this year. According to the tests done on Qualcomm’s reference platform above, it doubles the frames per second rendering performance of its Gen 1 predecessor, albeit consuming slightly more power than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that is in the Galaxy S23 and others.
Moreover, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 Mobile Platform is a chipset that brings flagship 8-series features to future midrangers. Among those are high performance with increased processor clock rates and gaming-scale graphics, low-light photography with wider dynamic range, and 4K HDR video capture.
On the co-processing side, Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 will offer more complex AI calculations, as well as increased 5G download speeds and the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity standards.
The chip is already sampling with customers and phones with it will be released as soon as this month to the joy of their future owners, judging from the initial Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 tests. It might not be as powerful or as efficient as the high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but it sure beats its direct midrange phone competitor and is way better than its predecessor, even though the tests were done on Qualcomm’s reference design machine.
