Qualcomm, the popular mobile chipset maker, has officially launched its highly anticipated flagship mobile processor, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (also known as Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus). The firm has unveiled a new chipset that improves speed and battery efficiency, and it is the successor to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile CPU, which was released in November of last year. So let’s get into the meat of the post and look at the full specifications of the recently unveiled mobile chip.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has the same octa-core architecture as the previous generation, which means it has a single Cortex-X2 ultra-high performance core, three Cortex-A710 efficiency cores, and four Cortex-A510 efficiency cores. However, the chipset manufacturer has made a few minor adjustments to boost the chipset’s efficiency, which will result in a fantastic experience on flagship handsets.
The Cortex X2 core has been overclocked from 3.00 GHz to 3.20 GHz, resulting in a 10% increase in CPU performance. The GPU has also been overclocked, resulting in a 10% increase in GPU performance.
The most crucial component in a device is its power efficiency, which the business has enhanced in the current set as well. The new TSMC-based chipset has been designed by the chipset maker, and it can now give 30% more power efficiency.
Apart from the improvements noted above, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile CPU is similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile processor. The chipset can support up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM running at 3,200 MHz and UFS 3.1 storage, as well as a QHD+ display with up to 144Hz or 4K at 60Hz, 10-bit rendering (Rec. 2020), and HDR10+ compatibility.
It also includes the Snapdragon X65 modem, which can deliver peak 5G speeds of up to 10Gbps, as well as the FastConnect 6900 WiFi modem, which operates at up to 3.6GHz and supports Wi-Fi 6/6E. It also has Bluetooth 5.3, and Qualcomm’s newest aptX Lossless technology and Bluetooth LE Audio are supported.
It has a triple 18-bit Spectra ISP and up to 200MP sensors, as well as the capacity to shoot videos in 8K at 30 frames per second (4K at 120fps). The chipset also supports HLG, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision codecs, as well as a dedicated bokeh engine.
Popular smartphone makers such as Xiaomi, Realme, Motorola, and OnePlus have also stated that their handsets will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 starting in Q2 2022.
