The well-known Chinese tipster, Digital Chat Station, took to Weibo to share some specifications of the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 series chipset. He says that the upcoming chipset will have 4x Cortex-A710 CPU cores and 4x Cortex-A510 CPU cores alongside an Adreno 662 GPU. The configuration makes this chip a lesser version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship SoC that has a similar core setup but gains another high-performance Cortex-X2 core.
This next one could likely be called the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, in line with the company’s revamped naming convention. The tipster is not sure whether this chip will be based on TSMC‘s 5nm or Samsung‘s 4nm architecture. But he did mention that this new chip will be placed lower than the Snapdragon 870 SoC, which puts this chip closer to the likes of the Snapdragon 780G or a tad bit higher than the 778G+ SoCs.
Just a few days back, we exclusively shared Qualcomm’s plans to announce the updated Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC based on TSMC’s 4nm architecture. In the post, we mentioned the existence of two Snapdragon 7 series chips in development, and this leak could be pointing to one of those chips. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ is scheduled to be announced in early May, with retail products featuring the chip hitting stores sometime in early June.
