    Alongside the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Qualcomm also unveiled the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processor that's targeted toward gaming smartphones. Qualcomm claims its new chipset “delivers epic mobile gaming with high-speed connectivity, plus heart-pumping audio and visuals.

    The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 (SM7450-AB) is the successor to the popular Snapdragon 778G chipset that was used in the Galaxy A52s 5G and the Galaxy M52 5G. The new chipset is manufactured using Samsung Foundry's 4nm EUV process.

    It has an octa-core CPU with one ARM Cortex-A710 CPU core clocked up to 2.4GHz, three ARM Corex-A710 CPU cores clocked at 2.36GHz, and four ARM Cortex-A510 CPU cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

    Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 offers 20% faster graphics compared to Snapdragon 778G

    The new processor is a part of Qualcomm's Snapdragon Elite Gaming lineup and brings 20% better graphics performance than its predecessor. It features Adreno Frame Motion Engine, Qualcomm Game Quick Touch, HDR gaming, and VRS (Variable Rate Shading) for better gaming performance. The GPU can drive QHD+ screens at 60Hz or Full HD+ screens at 144Hz.

    It has the Snapdragon X62 5G modem with support for SA/NSA networks and dual-SIM 5G setups. It supports mmWave (4CA, 2×2 MIMO) and sub-6GHz (4×4 MIMO) networks with peak download speeds of up to 4.4Gbps. It also features dual-frequency GPS, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3 (aptX, aptX Adaptive, and LE Audio), NFC, and USB 3.1 Type-C.

    Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 Features

    Its triple-14-bit Spectra ISP supports 200MP camera sensors. It can operate up to 84MP sensors with zero shutter lag. In dual or triple-camera setups, it supports 64MP+20MP or 25MP+25MP+25MP sensors, respectively, with zero shutter lag. The ISP can also record 4K 30fps HDR videos. It also supports encoding and decoding HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision videos.

    Other features of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 include support for biometric recognition (face, fingerprint, iris, and voice), Quick Charge 4+ fast charging, Digital Keys, Digital Wallet, and up to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM.

    Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 phones will launch starting in Q2 2022

    HONOR, OPPO, and Xiaomi are the only Android OEMs listed to use the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. They will launch smartphones based on this new chipset starting in Q2 2022, which means we will soon start seeing those devices. This chipset could be great for devices like the Galaxy A74 and the Galaxy S22 FE.
