The processor also has hardware support for ray tracing graphics, FastConnect 7800, and LPDDR5X memory support. Other key features include AV1 decoding, Bluetooth 5.4, aptX/aptX Lossless/aptX Adaptive, support for 144Hz QHD+ displays, Quick Charge 5 capabilities, and Snapdragon Seamless and Wi-Fi 7 integration.
