From November 14th to November 17th this year, Qualcomm will hold the Snapdragon Technology Summit. At that time, Qualcomm will most likely release the next-generation flagship chip Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. After that, various mobile phone manufacturers will also gradually release new flagship mobile phones, which means that this year, mobile phone manufacturers will release three generations of flagship phones a year.
According to Weibo blogger @DigitalChat Station today, as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 (SM8550) chip itself uses TSMC’s 4nm process, so next year’s flagship chip will not be as big as this year’s six-month update, and the Snapdragon 8+ Gen2 chip in the second half of next year will only be overclocked on the basis of the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chip. Therefore, next year’s cell phone manufacturers’ product line will return to normal, not like this year as a year released three generations of flagships, but the first half and second half of each a heavyweight flagship.
Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chip after the release of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chip, which uses TSMC’s 4nm process. As the power performance of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chip has been greatly improved compared to Samsung’s Snapdragon 8 Gen1, various cell phone manufacturers have actively launched new flagship phones with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chip in the middle of this year.
According to the blogger on August 25, the first Snapdragon 8 Gen2 phones are scheduled to be released after Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit, which is tentatively scheduled for the second half of November, and the blogger said that the progress of the first launchers is still possible. The information shows that Xiaomi 13 series, Redmi K60 series and Vivo X90 series will be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor.
