The Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 is Qualcomm's most recent midrange 7series processor for mobile smartphones. The new chip falls between the two previously stated SoCs, despite the name suggesting that it replaces the SD 7+ Gen 2 or SD 7s Gen 2. With a 1+3+4 CPU package, SD 7 Gen 3 is manufactured using TSMC's 4nm manufacturing technology. A prime core clocked at 2.63GHz, three performance cores at 2.4 GHz, and four efficiency cores at 1.8 GHz are all included in the Kryo CPU.
