Qualcomm has announced on its website that the next Snapdragon Tech Summit will be held from November 14 to 17. That’s when the company is likely to unveil its next flagship chipset, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
According to weibo user @digital Chat, the development progress of Xiaomi’s SM8550 new phone is one month faster than last year, and Qualcomm’s press conference also mentioned mid-November, so we hope to see the debut of the new phone in November this year at the earliest, and multiple models will be released in December. The pace of three generations of flagship in one year is getting faster and faster.
The third generation of Mi flagship refers to mi 12 series, MI 12S series and MI 13 series, among which Mi 12 carries the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Mi 12S will carry the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, and Mi 13 series is expected to carry the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, the successor to snapdragon 888, is the first chip to use Qualcomm’s new naming scheme, which previously used a three-digit numbering system. It is also Qualcomm’s first chip to use ARM’s latest Armv9 architecture.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the successor of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It will be manufactured by TSMC, but it may still use 4nm process. It will be released in the fourth quarter of this year, when mi 13 series, Samsung Galaxy S23 series and other new flagships will carry this chip.
