Your smartphone may soon be getting a smart upgrade.

Qualcomm has announced the launch of its new Snapdragon Series 7 Gen 3 chip, which it said will first be used in Honor and Vivo phones. The new chipset "offers comprehensive advancements to inspire on-device artificial intelligence," the company said in a press release.

Qualcomm said that the new Snapdragon 7 chip's CPU peak speed is as high as 2.63GHz, GPU performance is improved by more than 50%, and its AI capabilities are increased by 60% per watt while maintaining low power consumption. For you, this means upgrading the functions and features you use most without sacrificing a ton of your device's battery life.

Quick Charge 5 technology will also improve charging performance. Qualcomm promises that devices running the chipset will be able to charge from 0% to 50% in five minutes, and consume 20% less power on the CPU and GPU.

Qualcomm says the first devices to use the new Snapdragon Series 7 Gen 3 chips will come from Honor and Vivo, whose launch should happen sometime this month.
