Product Brief

Performance and Battery Life

Fast, responsive performance combined with multi-day battery life in a thin, cool, quiet PC.
Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platforms deliver up to 10% higher system performance than competitive platforms. Up to 19+ hours of continuous use on a single charge is up to 2x the battery life of typical entry-tier laptops.

Always On, Always Connected

Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platforms have an integrated Snapdragon X15 4G LTE modem. This enables your laptop to automatically and seamlessly switch between trusted Wi-Fi and cellular networks, helping to keep you securely connected virtually anywhere. With connected standby and instant on capabilities, your laptop will always be up to date and ready to go when you are.

Advanced Camera and Audio

With the accelerated transition to digital, we are all connecting remotely more often for work, learning, and catching up with friends and family. Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platforms come with integrated Qualcomm Spectra™ ISP (image signal processor) for crisp, high quality video and Qualcomm Aqstic™ Audio technology that can deliver clear audio for incredible video conferencing.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 is capable of over 5 trillion operations per second (TOPS) with the fifth generation Qualcomm® Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine. Modern experiences and security applications are increasingly enabled by AI acceleration. On device security can be accelerated, voice recognition can be more accurate, and computational photography can be used for background effects or gaze correction. Dedicated, on device AI can make these experiences a reality faster and more efficiently.

Enterprise-Grade Security

Modern security features designed to protect you and your data from the chip to the cloud are built right into the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform. From the moment you press the power button a layered secure boot with multiple verifications helps ensure your device starts safely and securely. LTE connectivity enhances Wi-Fi to enable security applications and operating systems to stay updated against “zero day” threats, and keeps enterprise and education laptops more visible and manageable.
