Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 Allegedly Outperforms the Flagship 8+ Gen 1 in Leaked Benchmark Scores
Last year, Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, a highly anticipated mid-range smartphone chipset that received positive reviews from reviewers. However, it failed to impress smartphone manufacturers that mostly went for the Dimensity 8100 instead of this chipset.
Like every year, keeping with its commitment to innovation and improvement, Qualcomm is now looking to refresh the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 with a potential Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 (or SD 7 Gen 2). This new chipset is expected to be built on TSMC’s 4 nm node, which offers improved performance and power efficiency.
The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1, also known internally as “SM7475“, has recently appeared on AnTuTu benchmark. The scores obtained by the SM7475 on AnTuTu are impressive, and it looks like the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1 has the potential to rival the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is currently one of the most powerful smartphone chipsets available.
Popular leaker Digital Chat Station posted the scores on Weibo, where we saw the first Snapdragon 7 chipset, the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1, surpass the one million mark on AnTuTu, putting it on par with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. In an unnamed Realme device, the SoC achieves a total score of 1,029,731. The phone received a CPU score of 248,132, but the GPU score was not reported.
Although its final name has not been decided, the “SM7475” model number indicates that it is a chipset in some form. Based on Qualcomm’s previous naming conventions (the SM8450 was the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while the SM8475 was the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1), we can expect this to be introduced as the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1. However, there is no official confirmation. We will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
