Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 may be released in May

Since the presentation of the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip only 3 weeks have passed, but it became known that the chipmaker is working hard on the new generation of the device. The reason for such a hurry may be the increasing competition from MediaTek, which has prepared the Density 9000.

The release of the new generation was planned for a later date. Still, the market dictates its conditions and, to lose the competition to MediaTek, Qualcomm management has decided to reduce the break and prepare the Gen 2 by May next year. At least, that's what a famous Mobile Chip Master analyst told the social network the day before.

In particular, according to the source, the chip will be released on a 4-nanometer processor company TSMC. Nothing is known about the characteristics of future novelties, but all its difference from the first generation may be the use of equipment TSMC.
