Qualcomm has become a well-known brand for Android mobile processors with wide performance and efficiency. So new rumors suggest that the premium chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will continue that tradition.
According to informant digital chat station, the new chip will have a new CPU architecture: 1+5+2. Thus, the platform can rely one “supercore”, five cores for performance and two for efficiency.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with serial number SM8650 should bring a more advanced Cortex-X4 main core and Adreno 750 GPU. the platform’s “super CPU” can operate at a frequency of up to 3.7 GHz.
For comparison, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, a special version of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, is clocked up to 3.36 GHz. A performance far superior to the 3.2 GHz speed of the standard processor that appeared in November 2022.
According to the legend, Taiwan’s TSMC should continue to be responsible for the production of Qualcomm’s premium chipsets. Therefore, the model should use the N4P node, 4nm technology manufacturing process with a slight increase in efficiency.
The company has reportedly decided not to go ahead with 3nm lithography due to its production cycle. Since the N4P will deliver great results and is more user-friendly than the N3, mass production could begin once Qualcomm has completed testing the new chip.
Debut of Snapdragon 8 Gen 3
If you follow the calendar of previous years, Qualcomm should officially announce Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the last quarter of 2023. The first devices with the chipset could already hit the market this year.
Rumors suggest that Chinese Xiaomi and OnePlus should be the first brands to launch Android phones with the new chipset. Also, the platform can equip the future Samsung Galaxy S24.
