Qualcomm Unveils S7 and S7 Pro Gen 1 Chips
The S7 Pro Gen 1 is the key highlight of the event. As per the official info, it comes with micro-power WiFi in addition to Bluetooth for connectivity purposes.
It will let audio devices offer a connectivity range longer than what you get with a Bluetooth-only connection. The company says the chip will seamlessly switch between WiFi and Bluetooth to ensure you continue enjoying your music or attending calls even when you go beyond the usual Bluetooth range.
The new technology will let the S7 Pro Gen 1 chip deliver 10 hours of untethered 96 kHz lossless music streaming. In comparison, the previous-gen chip could offer only 48 kHz lossless music streaming for the same amount of time via Bluetooth.
