Last year in November, Qualcomm launched its latest flagship processor— Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The chipset comes with a new Adreno 740 GPU and takes performance and efficiency to a new level. The company is already working on its successor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and according to the chip’s recent Geekbench listing, it will push the envelope even further. And the good news is that the next-gen SoC could arrive earlier than the usual schedule.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 unveiled

Qualcomm is expected to unveil the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC around the same time as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 last year— November. However, reputed tipster Digital Chat Station suggests the company is ahead of the schedule with the development of its upcoming processor and may introduce it earlier than usual. The tipster did not provide a specific timeline but we can expect the SoC to debut sometime in October.

Mr. Chat Station adds that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-equipped devices will start launching in the Q4 of this year. The new processor is expected to power the majority of the flagship phones arriving late this year and early next year. This may include devices from Chinese manufacturers, such as Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo.

We are still pretty far from the chipset’s official launch, so its details are pretty limited. A recent Geekbench listing reveals that SoC managed to get a single-core score of 1,930 and a multi-core score of 6,236. This showcases around a 25% bump in CPU performance compared to the current best Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

We should be learning more about the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in the coming days. Stay tuned for the updates.
