Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 launch date
Qualcomm has announced the dates for this year Snapdragon Summit. And during this event, the company confirmed that it will be launching the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which will come earlier than its predecessors.
According to official notes, the Snapdragon Summit will be a three day event and will be held in Hawaii and starts on November 15 till November 17. Earlier today, the chipmaking giant had officially announced the Snapdragon W5 and W5+ SoC‘s launch during the Snapdragon Summit conference. Now, it has confirmed that it will be unveiling its next generation of flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the same event.
Typically, the company usually releases its latest high end chips at the end of the year, around December. But now, the dates have apparently moved up, although, Qualcomm has yet to reveal the reason for this. At the moment, it is likely that the Chinese tech giant Xiaomi will be the first to launch a flagship smartphone that features this upcoming chipset. It will probably launch its Xiaomi 13 series of premium grade handsets with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
Last year, Motorola was the first to launch a flagship model with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. In other words, we can expect it to be one of the first if not the very first again as well, with the Edge 40 Pro model. Keep in mind that the Snapdragon Summit is still a while away, so stick around for more updates regarding this matter.
