Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ delayed to second half of 2022
Just two months ago, we heard rumors that Qualcomm was on track to release its new 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ flagship processor in May, with actual phones powered by it expected by June, but today, we are hearing that those plans are pushed back and the powerful new chip will instead arrive in the second half of the year.
And now, these lockdowns seem to affect not only iPhone production, but Qualcomm’s newest chip as well.
Also, do keep in mind that the name “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+” is merely a suggestion rather than an officially adopted name by Qualcomm. Still, expectations for this new processor is indeed of a “plus” power: expect to see faster GPU performance, while CPU speeds remain the same.
