On December 2, Qualcomm Inc launched its next-gen smartphone chip focusing on flagship Android phones with advanced functionalities such as sharper photos and enhanced graphics than smartphones using from its rivals.
It didn’t take long for flagship smartphone makers to confirm that they would set up the latest and greatest CPU in their devices after Qualcomm introduced and revealed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor for Android OEMs.
With the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 set to be the go-to flagship smartphone chip for the next 12 months, it’s no wonder that a slew of companies have leaped at the chance to announce that they’ll be using it in their products.
While we might guess about future devices, even though Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer spoke at Qualcomm’s presentation, the future for Pixel is Tensor across the board. The Android smartphone industry will use Qualcomm’s chips for the foreseeable future. A few companies claim to be the “first” to market with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 smartphone, but what counts more is the devices that will use it.
The senior vice president and general manager of mobile, computer, and infrastructure for Qualcomm, Alex Katouzian, said that Qualcomm has been designing programs that will enable smartphone manufacturers to have a profound understanding of their newest launch.
During an interview, Kautozian told Reuters, “It’s not just saying, I’ve got the biggest CPU, and I can hit a benchmark that lasts one minute.” Further, he added to his statement, “We have all these capabilities, and it’s really about the user experience. That’s going to make a difference.”
In terms of the GPU, Qualcomm is emphasizing its Snapdragon Elite Gaming features, which include increased responsiveness, HDR gaming scenes, and “desktop-level capabilities.” Like the processor itself, a new Adreno GPU doesn’t have a name or number connected to it promises a 30 percent gain in graphics rendering and a 25 percent improvement in power savings over last year’s model.
