Qualcomm announced last night its new mobile platform, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, successor to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 8+ Gen 1. chipsetsdedicated to high-end smartphones or tablets, gives pride of place to artificial intelligence and promises increased connectivity, both with dual-SIM 5G and wifi 7. The question of devices that will use this chip, although Qualcomm mentioned the list of its partners during its announcement conference, and planned the formalization of the first products equipped with its Gen 2 before the end of the year.
Things are becoming clearer as the manufacturers concerned engage in who better to better on social networks. The first to be heard is none other than Motorola, which evokes the Moto X40, whose formalization will take place shortly in China. As the X30 series has evolved in recent months into Edge 30 in Europe, it should therefore be an Edge 40 series. OnePlus has also split a publication evoking its upcoming 11 series, which we imagine that the Pro version will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. This will also be the case for Oppo’s next Find X – probably called Find X6 Pro -, the brand having moreover entered into a partnership with Qualcomm to optimize the operation of the ray- tracing on its products.
Finally, Xiaomi has also published a visual dedicated to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, without mentioning the device that will be equipped with it; there is no doubt that this will be its series 13, which is expected shortly.
Others did not speak, but are nonetheless expected at the turn. This is the case of Vivo, whose X90 series will be presented next week, but also and above all of Samsung. The Korean, whose Galaxy S23 series should be formalized at the start of 2023, has been talking for several months about its rapprochement with Qualcomm and should favor the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 over its Exynos, which usually equip its models outside the Korean and American markets.
