Qualcomm is potentially teasing the launch date of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 – Wccftech

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will potentially see an announcement in the fourth quarter of 2022 if one wants to go through the Qualcomm launch history. Now, if you’re wondering when exactly the official launch will take place, the chipmaker may have left a huge mark.

Qualcomm could introduce Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 a good two weeks before Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 from last year

The Snapdragon Summit is an annual conference where Qualcomm showcases the latest technologies it has worked on, including one chipset that will power future Android flagships. On this occasion, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to be found in premium devices in 2023, and according to the Chiego manufacturer’s event page in San Diego, the Snapdragon Summit will take place between November 14th and 17th.

Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 gets praise for its energy efficiency, and tipster claims customers can buy Android flagships without worry

Looking at Qualcomm’s history, the flagship mobile SoC is usually announced on the first day of the Snapdragon Summit, meaning the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 could be unveiled on November 14th. Qualcomm’s phone partners like Xiaomi are also expected to attend the conference, where it can provide an overview of its flagship series that ships with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. In this case, these premium smartphones will likely be called the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro.

We could also get an overview of the successor to the Snapdragon 8cx 3, which has not been named yet, but earlier reports have set this SoC as competitor M1. Qualcomm has previously said it will take advantage of Nuvie’s acquisition for improve the performance of your future chipset in an attempt to take over Apple’s M-series. As far as we know about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Qualcomm is likely to stick to TSMC’s 4nm architecture to mass-produce its next-generation silicon.

TSMC will begin mass production of Apple’s M2 Pro and M2 Max later this year using its cutting-edge 3nm technology, but it is doubtful that Qualcomm will reap the benefits of this node at least until next year. Fortunately, with what we saw with Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will they can boast of improved energy efficiency and increased performance.

It could also be Qualcomm’s first SoC to be fully sporty new CPU cluster years, abandoning the ‘1 + 3 + 4’ core configuration and switching to the ‘1 + 2 + 2 + 3’ configuration instead. Whether this change will bring significant improvements or not, anyone can guess, so we will, as always, wait for the real results.

More information on this chipset is likely to be available in the coming weeks.
