As noted, the acceleration in the development of new processors is Qualcomm’s answer to the successful Dimensity 9000 chip from MediaTek. And with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 being installed in premium smartphones, Qualcomm intends to bring another chip to the market.
Presumably, Snapdragon Gen 2 will outperform Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Dimensity 9000 in terms of its characteristics. More detailed information is not provided.
If the information from insiders is correct, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 presentation will take place in May 2022.
