Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 may be released in May

Since the presentation of the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip only 3 weeks have passed, but it became known that the chipmaker is working hard on the new generation of the device. The reason for such a hurry may be the increasing competition from MediaTek, which has prepared the Dimensity 9000.

The release of the new generation was planned for a later date, but the market dictates its conditions and, in order not to lose the competition to MediaTek, Qualcomm management has decided to reduce the break and prepare the Gen 2 by May next year. At least, that's what a famous Mobile Chip Master analyst told the social network the day before.

In particular, according to the source, the chip will be released on 4-nanometer processor company TSMC. Nothing is known about the characteristics of future novelties, but it is possible that all its difference from the first generation will be the use of equipment TSMC.
