The CPU part is up to 15 percent faster, and the SoC itself is around five percent more power efficient.

The rest of the specifications include Qualcomm's triple 18-bit Spectra ISP with support for up to 200MP photo capture and 108MP single camera or triple 36MP one, Qualcomm's own Hexagon NPU with scalar, vector, and tensor accelerators, Snapdragon X64 5G Modem-RF and FastConnect 7800 Mobile Connectivity System with WiFi 7 and Bluetooth 5.4, Qualcomm's Snapdragon Sound Technology Suite, Qualcomm Quick Charge 5.0 technology, and more.

Qualcomm was keen to note that the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 is the first 7-series SoC to have on-device generative AI capabilities, offering support for bung of LLMs and LVMs, including Baichuan-7B, Llama 2, Gemini Nano, and Zhipu ChatGLM.
