Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 mid-range processor promises a major boost in performance and features over its predecessor. It’s built on a 4nm process and has four high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, and it’s expected to debut in the upcoming Redmi Note 13 Pro on September 21, 2023.
The Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 also includes an unnamed Adreno GPU that can support FHD+ displays with a 144Hz refresh rate. It supports up to 12GB of 3200MHz LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 4.0 flash storage.
