Qualcomm confirmed the announcement date for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which is promised to boast a significant jump in performance and power efficiency compared to its predecessor. The company will be announcing the new flagship SoC earlier than usual – October 24-26.
As per tradition, Qualcomm will be holding a Snapdragon Summit in Maui, Hawaii, but this time it will be about a month earlier than last year. To the best of our knowledge, the chip will feature a new 1+5+2 architecture instead of the 1+2+2+3 used in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Gen 2 series.
The SoC is said to run on 1x Cortex-X4 prime core paired with 5x Cortex-A720 cores and 2x Cortex-A520 cores and an Adreno 750 GPU, promising a significant increase in performance. The CPU package will also update its L3 cache from 8MB to 10MB.
Digital Chat Station, a renowned Chinese tipster, claims that the Xiaomi 14 series will be the first to employ Qualcomm’s new flagship chip in November with the vivo X100 series, iQOO 12 series, Redmi K70 series, OnePlus 12 and Realme GT5 to follow suit in the months to come.
