Qualcomm already has engineering samples of a single-chip system Snapdragon 8cx Gen4, which is designed for laptops with Windows. According to the data, engineering samples operate at a frequency of 3 GHz, while serial ones were previously assigned a frequency of 3.4 GHz.
The new SoC is manufactured using a 4 nm process technology. In which version, it is not clear, but, probably, serial platforms will also be produced according to these standards. And this speaks in favor of a relatively early announcement, since it is unlikely that Qualcomm will release such a solution in a couple of years, when there will be three-nanometer solutions or even platforms manufactured using thinner technical processes on the market for a long time.
SoC Hamoa, which should be released under the name Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4, remains a dark horse for now. There is no exact data that it will include new Oryon processor cores, which Qualcomm nominally has already announced. But on the other hand, the new SoC is credited with supporting discrete graphics cards.
Insider Cuba Wojciechowski, who shared fresh data, was previously the first to indicate that Xiaomi would switch to using JLQ platforms. In addition, he was the first to discover information about the reconfigured Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
