Qualcomm Technologies Inc, a California-based technology company, has reiterated that most tech consumers want and require more mobility, exceptional performance, increased efficiency, and the ability to be productive from anywhere, particularly in the last year of work-from-home and remote-work routines.
With this megatrend in mind, Qualcomm announced the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 computing platform on May 24, a long-awaited upgrade. While the Snapdragon 7c has been one of the business’s most successful chipsets, the second generation is the company’s groundbreaking entry-level platform for Always on, Always connected’ Windows PCs and Chromebooks with improved execution and support for multi-day battery performance.
The news follows Qualcomm’s annual 5G Summit. This year, the firm introduced the Snapdragon 778 5G chipset, which will power high-end smartphones.
Further, During a virtual announcement event, Qualcomm stated that smartphones powered by Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 will improve entry-level smartphone experiences with increased camera and audio capabilities, integrated LTE connection, AI acceleration, enterprise-grade security features, and the long-lasting battery life that customers deserve.
It is always on, and connected as users will have access to their device with the push of a button and will not have to wait for notifications or applications to wake up – much like a smartphone. However, The efficacy of these experiences does not come at the cost of battery life. On-device security can be expedited, speech recognition can be more precise, and computational photography may be utilised for backdrop effects or sight correction thanks to the platform’s sophisticated AI.
Furthermore, Users can expect fluid performance combined with multi-day battery life, with Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platforms delivering up to 10% higher system performance than competitive platforms, as well as roughly 19-plus hours of continuous use on a single charge, which is up to twice the battery life of typical entry-level laptops.
Moreover, according to Paul Hwang, Director of Product Management, it would give “an astonishing 60% greater [efficient performance] than the competitors.”
