According to our colleagues at WinFuture, Qualcomm is currently working on a mid-range processor, which will soon equip affordable ARM computers under Windows. The chip carries the serial number SC7295 and is expected to succeed the 2019 Snapdragon 7c directly.

Qualcomm currently offers various ARM processors for laptops running Windows and Chrome OS. Indeed, we find the Snapdragon 7c, but also the high-end model 8c. the American giant is said to be developing a successor for the Snapdragon 7c, whose code name would be SC7295.

According to WinFuture, it could be a derivative of the Snapdragon SM7350G which is currently known as the Snapdragon 775G. This processor is expected to equip mid-range smartphones in 2021, and it is expected that it will be unveiled at the same time as Xiaomi's Mi 11 Lite.


Qualcomm's SC7295 would have 8 cores, including 4 “gold” cores. The most powerful core would operate at 2.7 GHz. It would be supported by 3 cores at 2.4 GHz and by 4 cores with low power consumption at 1.8 GHz to ensure long battery life during light tasks.

Since this is a mid-range processor, we expect the computers it will equip to offer good value for money, but without achieving the impressive performance of Apple's new Mac M1s. For now, Qualcomm's best performing chips are the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2. So we imagine that Qualcomm could name the SC7295 Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 if it decides to follow the same logic as its big brother.

For its part, Samsung would soon launch a Windows 10 laptop PC with an Exynos 2200 SoC and an AMD GPU. It will therefore not be easy for Qualcomm to compete with such a machine. However, Qualcomm is reportedly in the process of preparing an Apple M1 competitor for Windows PCs, the SC8280. In particular, the latter could carry twice as much RAM as the Apple M1. It is hoped that Qualcomm and Samsung will soon unveil chips that can finally match Apple's, to improve the image of Windows ARM PCs.
