In retaliation for MediaTek’s upcoming Dimensity 8000 and 8100 sub-flagship processors, Qualcomm intends to make amends for its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 misstep. The first will be handled by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, while the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will take care of the second. Recent reports have said that Qualcomm’s top-end processors will be introduced in the second half of this year. Despite this, it is quite probable that the announcement will be made much sooner.
According to a well-known source known as Weibo, new CPUs won’t be available until the end of the year. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor is expected to be announced on May 20th, while the Snapdragon 7 chip will be unveiled the following week, according to him. A countdown to the release of the sub-flagship platform wasn’t specified by him, so we don’t know when it will be. According to his statement, the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 might be the successor of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus.
Other than that, the insider said that “a handful of authorities will unveil the first batch” during the launch of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus. It’s not hard to figure out that he means that representatives from different companies will attend the unveiling of the new chipset and announce the release of smartphones with a new CPU at the event.
According to expectations, Motorola and Xiaomi have the potential to be early adopters of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus-powered smartphones when they launch in June. The Motorola Frontier, Vivo X80 Pro +, OnePlus 10 Ultra, Xiaomi 12 S Pro, Xiaomi 12 Ultra, and Xiaomi 12T Pro are among the devices that might run the new platform. There are two new foldable Samsung phones: the Z Fold 4 and the Flip 4. Even Huawei is allowed to produce a 5G-capable phone without the permission of Realme, Oppo, Black Shark, Asus, Nubia, Honor, and Huawei.
The SM8550 product number is assigned to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chipset, while the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset is designated as the SM8450. It is expected that the new SoC will be made in Taiwan at the TSMC facility. Speculation suggests that Qualcomm will show off its flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC later this year.
The “1 + 3 + 4” three-cluster design is expected to be retained in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. There is a super-core, three productive cores, and four energy-efficient cores in the central processing unit (CPU). The ARM Cortex X may be used as a “supercore” in a computer system.
A new 5G modem, known as the Snapdragon X70 by Qualcomm, has also been introduced as part of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 platform. With the new Snapdragon X70, 5G networks could get speeds of up to 10Gbps. It will also have more features.
