The whistleblower Digital Chat Station just revealed on Weibo that Qualcomm will launch the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ next week. The Notebookcheck page also says that smartphones using the processor will be released in June, along with a mid-range offering running a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chip.
Specifically, Digital Chat Station has said that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ will be launched in May this year. At the same time, many sources have speculated that the first flagship equipped with this chip may be the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. Next, this chip will be integrated on Samsung flagships, which may be Galaxy Z Flip4, Galaxy Z Fold4.
Little is known about the internals of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+, although the chip has been spotted in scoring software. However, some news sites believe that the processor will be accelerated on the main core Cortex-X2. However, since CPU cores are notoriously power hungry, Qualcomm may have to reduce internal performance.
Digital Chat Station added that Qualcomm will launch the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 after the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. However, information about the internal structure remains a mystery.
