The 1st generation Snapdragon 7 chip was introduced earlier this year and has been used in several different smartphones so far. Qualcomm is now working on developing a processor with model number SM7475. The position of this chip in the Snapdragon family is not clear. However, according to a famous whistleblower named Roland Quant, it is expected that this chip will be launched under the name Snapdragon 7 Generation 2.
Also, the SM7475 chip can be sold under the brand name Snapdragon 7 Plus 1st generation; The scenario that was previously seen for the Snapdragon 8 Plus 1st generation chip as an upgraded version of the 1st generation Snapdragon 8. According to rumors, the CPU of the new chip will use a 3-cluster design including 1 main core, 3 gold cores and 4 silver cores.
The main core will operate at a frequency of 2.4 GHz; While the golden cores will probably have the same maximum frequency. Silver cores will also operate at a frequency of 1.8 GHz. It seems that these figures are quite similar to the specifications of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip. Currently, there are no details about the hardware specifications of the Snapdragon 7 generation 2 chip.
It is expected that this new chip will be equipped with processing cores with a different and new design. This means that instead of using the Cortex A710 and A510 cores in the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip, Qualcomm will use the Cortex A715 model as the main core and the Cortex A510 as the silver core. The Snapdragon 7 generation 2 chip will probably see a small improvement in terms of performance; But its energy efficiency will improve significantly.
Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon Summit event will be held next month, and according to predictions, the American company will unveil the Snapdragon 8 generation 2 chip during this event. Therefore, at that time, we will probably see the release of details about the Snapdragon 7 generation 2 chip.
