Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 officially. Flagship smartphone batteries will breathe a sigh of relief

There are not so many changes to throw the newly purchased flagship with the “eight” into the trash. However, they are so significant that it would be nice if from now on new smartphones from the top shelf were hit with a plus variant.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has more power and higher energy efficiency

The new variant is first and foremost all core clock speed boosted. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 configuration includes:

  • 1 main Cortex-X2 core with a clock of 3.2 GHz (instead of 3.0 GHz);
  • 3 high-performance Cortex-A710 cores with a clock speed of 2.75 GHz (instead of 2.5 GHz);
  • 4 energy-saving Cortex-A510 cores with 2 GHz (instead of 1.8 GHz).

Qualcomm boasts that the performance of both the CPU and GPU in relation to the “eight” is higher by 10 percent

So it turns out that Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 stands apart between generationsbecause it is customary for the company to declare an approx. 20% increase in capacity year on year.

In addition, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is to be more kind to the battery

In addition, the new chip is to be more energy-efficient. The manufacturer’s tests show that the 8+ is able to work by 30 percent more efficiently with an energy consumption of 8.

Qualcomm declares that by implementing Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 instead of the eight, you can provide an additional 80 minutes of video streaming, 5.5 hours of phone calls, 50 minutes of browsing social networking sites or 17 hours of music playback.

These improvements are mainly due to a change in the lithographic process. Admittedly, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 still stays at 4 nm, but it uses technology TSMCand not Samsung.

When will Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 hit smartphones?

The rest of the parameters are roughly unchanged. Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, like the original, supports:

  • 60 hertz 4K screens or 144 hertz 2K screens;
  • cameras with a resolution of up to 200 Mpix;
  • Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity;
  • 5G data download at speeds up to 10 Gb / s;
  • LPDDR5 memory chips with speeds up to 3200 MHz.

The first smartphones with the new chip are to hit the market in the third quarter. Qualcomm revealed that their own phones with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 are prepared by the brands ASUS ROG, Black Shark, Honor, iQOO, Lenovo, Motorola, Nubia, OnePlus, OPPO, OSOM, realme, RedMagic, Redmi, vivo, Xiaomi and ZTE.
