Qualcomm will launch Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ in May

The news comes from Yogesh Brar, which in recent months has proven to be very active in the mobile world. According to the rumors he has collected, it seems that Qualcomm will announce the new chip (model number SM8475) in early May.

According to what emerges, Qualcomm will rely on semiconductors with process from 4 nanometers of TSMC, which would have proved more efficient in testing than Samsung Foundry’s. This would be the first chip based on this process for Qualcomm, which is expected to prove more adept at handling temperatures and power consumption. Although, for the moment, all possibilities remain unverified.

According to reports, smartphone manufacturers have already had the opportunity to experiment and get their hands on the new Qualcomm chip. It seems that Lenovo, Motorola, OnePlus e Xiaomi are on the customer list.

Qualcomm also sent the new series of Snapdragon 700 for testing, although it is unclear whether they will be announced at the same time as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. With this new generation Qualcomm wants to try to redistribute chip-makers like MediaTekwhich in recent months with the Dimensity 9000 chips has shown that it does not fear the competition.

It will also be interesting to see if, now that he works with TSMC semiconductors, a comparison with the performance of the iPhones is possible, since Apple use the same provider. If the rumors are true, we should only wait until May to discover the possibilities of this new chip. We will keep you informed.
