In November of 2017, Qualcomm introduced their most recent and most advanced flagship processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. A brand new Adreno 740 GPU is included in the chipset, which brings both performance and efficiency to a whole new level. Its successor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, is also in the process of being developed, and a recent listing of the processor on Geekbench hints that it will push the edge even farther. The second piece of encouraging information is that the next-generation system-on-a-chip might be released earlier than expected.
It is anticipated that Qualcomm will reveal the brand new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC around the same time of year (November) as it did the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 last year. Nevertheless, a reputable source of information known as Digital Chat Station claims that the corporation is already ahead of schedule with the development of its forthcoming processor and may launch it earlier than is customary. The source did not disclose a particular schedule, however we may anticipate that the SoC will be introduced some time during the month of October.
In addition, according to Mr. Chat Station, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-equipped handsets will begin launching somewhere in the fourth quarter of this year. It is anticipated that the new processor will be used to power the majority of the flagship smartphones that will be released before the end of this year and at the beginning of next year. It’s possible that this includes products made by Chinese firms like Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo.
Because we are still quite some distance away from the formal debut of the chipset, very few details about it are now available. The SoC was able to achieve a single-core score of 1,930 and a multi-core score of 6,236 according to a recent listing on Geekbench. This demonstrates roughly a 25 percent increase in CPU performance in comparison to the best Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 currently available. In the following days, we should see additional information regarding the future Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 made available to us.
