It’s been a busy day for Qualcomm, first, it unveiled its latest generation line of wearable device chipsets consisting of the Snapdragon W5 and W5+ SoCs a few hours ago. Now, the company has also revealed the date of its next Snapdragon Summit. This annual event is always held in Hawaii, and this year will be the same.
Snapdragon Summit is usually held in December, but in 2022, it will be a three-day event scheduled for November 15-17.
Here is the official Snapdragon Summit invitation from Qualcomm.
At Snapdragon Summit, we will see the debut of the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Of course, more chips could be announced at the same time as that.
While Qualcomm didn’t specifically mention why it moved the Snapdragon Summit 2022 to November, it may have something to do with the Chinese smartphone market, which typically sees a big spike in phone sales during the Chinese New Year. As a result, many Chinese companies are hoping to launch their new top-of-the-line devices before the Chinese New Year – and an early announcement of the chips powering them could help shorten lead times.
