Qualcomm announced and elaborated Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 mobile platform this week, when the platform itself will be a combination of Kryo CPU, Adreno GPU, Snapdragon X62 5G Modem-RF system and other technology stack. In short, Qualcomm says this is the most powerful Snapdragon 7 series ever released.
Highlights of the platform include a 50% increase in Kryo CPU performance with a peak speed of 2.91GHz, 2X GPU performance, and all this with 13% better power efficiency. That means more power for longer, perfect for mobile gamers or those who like to stream high-quality content. Speaking of streaming, the upgraded modem offers 5G download speeds of up to 4.4Gbps, as well as 5G/4G Dual-Sim Dual Active support for those using two SIMs at once.
Phones using this platform should also see a better photo-taking experience.

In addition, users can capture brighter and sharper shots at darker settings with Mega Low Light, which combines the best aspects of 30 images into one vivid result.
As for what phones will get this platform, nothing is confirmed yet, but Qualcomm says that OEMs like realme and Redmi will soon launch phones based on this platform, which is expected this month.
Doesn’t sound too shabby for those who aren’t buying phones with 8-series chipsets.
