Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 release date and what to expect from Qualcomm’s new top-end SoC


If you like the world of smartphones, you know that Qualcomm, MediaTek and Apple are always developing new processors. The goal is to always offer the best SoC with the best performance and the lowest possible power consumption. It’s a power/efficiency war.

And if you’ve been paying attention these days, you’ve probably read that all these companies are releasing new chips. For example, Qualcomm has already announced Snapdragon 8+ and Snapdragon 7 Gen1.

But it doesn’t end there, not in Qualcomm territory. This week, the American company officially confirmed that Snapdragon Summit 2022 will take place in November.


This is Snapdragon 8 Gen 1

For those who don’t know, the Snapdragon Summit is where Qualcomm showcases its latest and greatest innovations, usually led by the company’s flagship chipset for next year’s Android phones.

Last year, the summit took place in early December and featured the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and now we know when the event will take place this year.

Qualcomm has confirmed on its website that Snapdragon Summit 2022 will take place over three days, from November 15 to 17.. This is a significantly earlier date than usual as Qualcomm usually holds its event in December.

In addition, the event will once again be held in Hawaii as it has been in recent years, without the brief interruption that the COVID-19 celebrations have entailed. Presumably, this year’s chip will be called Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, in keeping with Qualcomm’s new branding.

Expected that The chip is manufactured by TSMC in a 4nm processbearing the official name SM8550.

Rumors suggest that the chip will use an unorthodox design with 1+2+2+3 circuit consisting of one Cortex A73 coretwo Cortex A720 cores, two Cortex A710 cores, and three Cortex A510 cores.
