The C.P.U. relies on a Kyro core cluster running at 2.4GHz. The GPU is Adreno 662. Qualcomm says that the new GPU is 20% faster than its predecessor, the flower 778G, and AI tasks are better than before.
Qualcomm’s Adreno Frame Motion Engine claims to double the frame rates in games at an equivalent power consumption similar to snapdragon 778G. The new chip has support for up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM.
The SD7G1 also gets the X62 5G technology that boasts up to 4.4 Gbps transfer speeds with twin standby 5G properties on standalone and non-standalone modes. It’s supported by Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 with Snapdragon Sound and aptX.
The Spectra triple ISP adds support for up to 200MP images, which may be a first for the snapdragon seven families. There’s also a 4K HDR recording similar to a one-bit HEIC photograph captured with HEVC support. The trusty Management Engine for security is another first.
The first Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 devices are coming in just a few weeks from a broad range of OEMs. The Oppo Reno 8 Pro will be the first phone to feature this SoC once it’s announced on May 23.
