The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 was a disappointment, atleast on benchmarks online. With it offering zero improvements in performance over the Snapdragon 778G series of chips. Qualcomm maybe well aware of that as the new Snapdragon 7 chip is having a fundamental shift from the 7 Gen 1.

Digital Chat Station tipped that the new Snapdragon 7 chip will be fabbed and manufactured by TSMC on its 4nm node. This will bring drastic improvements, theoretically, as this was the change Qualcomm made at the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 to the 8+ Gen 1 and delivered huge improvements in efficiency.

Aside from that information, not much is known. It is not sure that if this new Snapdragon 7 chip will be a refresh of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, like the 8+ Gen 1 to the 8 Gen 1. Basically, a 7+ Gen 1 for midrange devices. Or Qualcomm scraps the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 design and rush the Snapdragon 7 Gen 2 for midrange devices.

One thing to note that the Weibo tipster hinted that a group of chips from high end and midrange are set to arrive next year. This may mean that the new chip is a successor, not a midyear refresh, all along.
