We know that, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 wasn't enough to beat many high-end chips. However, smartphone brands like Samsung, OnePlus, and Xiaomi implement it on most of their flagship phones.

Today we're excited for its next-in-line, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, that is said to arrive at the next Snapdragon summit. But it's more interesting that we're not so far and this summit will live as it did before.

Snapdragon 8 gen 2 release date

According to GSMArena, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 has a high possibility of being released between November 14th and November 17th this year. Like, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was launched earlier in December last year, which means this time around it will be launched earlier.

On the other hand, Qualcomm has their latest Snapdragon 8 plus Gen 1, which has debuted this month. Certainly, it has some advantages over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which lacks a good benchmark score. This chipset will made it entrance in the flagship ranges within July to August.

Above all, there might be some puzzles or delays in the launch date of Snapdragon 8 gen 2.

Snapdragon 8 gen 2 supported smartphones

These are the upcoming flagship phones that could implement the Snapdragon 8 gen 2 chipset.

  • Xiaomi 13
  • Motorola edge 40
  • Samsung Galaxy S23
  • IQOO 10

Qualcomm accidentally uploaded Snapdragon 8 gen 2 information to their database and then deleted it without any notice. It also hints that it might be a mistake by Qualcomm.

To be clear, tech companies such as Xiaomi and Motorola are competing to produce the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 supported devices. They are keen to implement this chipset on their latest flagship phones. The Xiaomi 13 is going to be the first smartphone to arrive with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 gen 2 processor, which is rumored to arrive later this year in Q3.

On the other hand, Motorola has their latest Edge 30 ultra that could arrive with the latest Snapdragon 8 gen 1+ chipset. It's good to mention that the brand launched the Motorola Edge 30 Pro smartphone with the current Snapdragon 8 gen 1 chipset.

So it's hard to guess which brand or smartphone will implement the Snapdragon 8 gen 2 chipset the earliest. Last year, Motorola first used Qualcomm latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset in their Motorola Edge X30 smartphone.

Snapdragon 8 gen 2 configuration

There is not enough evidence or reliable information about this next generation Snapdragon (SM8550) mobile chipset. Yet we're about to see an octa-core CPU with a quad-cluster architecture (1+2+2+3) formation that was previously used as a tri-cluster (1+3+4) CPU formation.

Also, Digital chat station revealed that the Snapdragon 8 gen 2 will follow an unusual 4-core CPU combo once again. They mentioned one Cortex-X3, dual cortex-A720 and A710, and three cortex-A510 CPUs.

However, take this with a grain of salt as they failed to provide a source. A large amount of rumors or leaks will keep appearing online since Qualcomm plays a predicament in mobile chips. Don't worry, we will try to give you more accurate information as we got from the Snapdragon 8 gen 2 chipset. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
