Qualcomm introduced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC late in 2017. Based on TSMC’s 4nm process, the new Snapdragon flagship SoC offers improved performance and efficiency compared to the outgoing Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. There may be a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 SoC this year. Alternatively, Qualcomm could launch the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC instead of the Plus version of its SoC later this year.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC’s maximum clock speed is 3.2GHz. In the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, its overclocked variant has a maximum clock speed of 3.36GHz. It is anticipated that the forthcoming 8 Gen 3 SoC will have even greater performance while consuming less energy. There are still many months until the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC is released. However, according to a new report, Qualcomm’s next-generation flagship SoC will debut sooner than anticipated.
