Days after the rumor mill for the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 first fired up, a new leak has now revealed even more details of the upcoming chipset which is expected to rival the MediaTek Dimensity 8100.

A few days ago, actual details of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 surfaced for the first time, revealing that it would feature ARM's V9 architecture minus the Cortex-X2 core. A new leak has now provided even more details of the sub-premium chipset.

As revealed by Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will use a 4+4 configuration, with four Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.36 GHz and four Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. Supposedly, though, these clock speeds aren't definitive as the chipset is still in testing. It could debut on the market with different frequencies, although we wouldn't expect any wild changes.

The leaker also fails to concretely answer the question of who builds the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. Reportedly, current information strongly leans towards the chipset being built by Samsung, almost definitely on the same 4 nm process underpinning the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. We already know that node to be worse than TSMC's equivalent on the Dimensity 9000 and likely even the Taiwanese company's 5 nm process as seen on the impressive Dimensity 8100

It's currently unknown when the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will make its debut. YouTuber Utsav Techie appears to posit a May launch, however. Take that with a pinch of salt.
