Qualcomm has now unveiled its latest mid-range chip, the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 2, which will appear in phones from Redmi, Realme, and others later this month. The chip is not surprisingly not quite as powerful as the Snapdragon 8 Gen, but Qualcomm says the CPU is up to 50 percent more powerful than the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, and the GPU should be up to twice as powerful while consuming 13 percent less power.
