Snapdragon 8 Gen 2: Phones, Release Date & Everything We Know So Far

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 might be released earlier than expected

Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, was announced in December 2021. Since then, several smartphones have been using the SoC. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 did not meet the expectations of the users as it was reported several heating issues on phones with the SoC. This may be due to Samsung’s fabrication process, on which the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is built.

Therefore, Qualcomm will be releasing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ to combat these issues. It is said that the 8 Gen 1+ will be built on TSMC’s 4nm fabrication process. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ is said to release next month, i.e. in May 2022. But Qualcomm is already working on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and it is said to arrive earlier than usual.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Release Date

  • Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will likely be released in October 2022.

According to Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is on its way to launch in a few months. Qualcomm wants to release its new processors as soon as possible. The “Plus” version of processors is usually released in July or Q3. But this time, Qualcomm is planning to release the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ ahead of the usual schedule. This is due to the lack of reputation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the availability of better alternatives from MediaTek.

Similarly, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2– SM8550 might be released earlier than one can expect. There is no official information regarding the release date of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 yet. Generally, the Snapdragon 8 series processors are launched at the very end of the year. But we can expect the release to be 2-3 months earlier than the usual release schedule. Perhaps, we will it debut in October 2022.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be more powerful and power-efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the 8 Gen 1+. It will be built on TSMC’s 4nm node, unlike the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which is built on Samsung’s node.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Phones

An early release of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 may also mean an early release of flagship smartphones that the SoC will power. Perhaps, we will see an early release of the Xiaomi 13 Series. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powered phones list will probably include Xiaomi 13/ 13 Pro, Motorola Moto Edge 40 Pro, OnePlus 11 Pro, iQOO 10 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S23/ S23+/ S23 Ultra, and Realme GT 3 Pro.
