The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is coming in November

  • In recent days, perhaps feeling the pressure from Apple, of the next-generation Android flagship SOC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, has also begun to spread. Specifically, Qualcomm will release the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in November this year, and then Xiaomi, Samsung, moto, iQOO and other manufacturers will also launch them one after another, and they will be released in January or February 2023, or even in December this year. . After suffering from Samsung's losses last time, will use TSMC to produce this new processor, which is still 4nm and overclocked. It is said that it will upgrade from the "1+3+4" architecture to the new "1+" 2+2+3" architecture. Its super-large core is upgraded to Cortex X3, which improves the performance by 22% compared to Cortex X2. The large core is upgraded to Cortex A715, and the small core is still Cortex A510. As for how the large core and the small core allocate the 2+2+3 structure, it is not very clear. In addition, various manufacturers will also split up and use their best equipment to match the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. What I have seen so far is the E6 luminous material screen, a 1-inch main camera, a 200-megapixel camera, and a new periscope super telephoto. But the reviewer feels that the problem of the current Android platform is not that there are too many flagships, but that the powerful models of 2700-4000 yuan are not enough. For example, from the 2999 yuan Redmi K50 Extreme Edition, we can draw some conclusions: choose a reliable SOC, the game experience will be very strong, and the picture quality can be improved at full frames; the ISP performance of the SOC is strong, and the manufacturer's Experience, the mobile phone's camera will not be weak; the 120Hz global high-brush under low power consumption will actually improve the smoothness of the mobile phone to a new level. Therefore, if the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is to improve performance through overclocking, then the Snapdragon 8+ can be selected, and the current power consumption performance and performance are just right. Qualcomm's idea may be that if the current mobile phone is cool, it proves that the frequency of the SOC still has potential to be tapped, but in fact, for the 40 °C that is common in many mobile phone evaluations, many people feel very uncomfortable. Performance is more important than 100,000 points. In fact, if a person has experienced the heat dissipation test of Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, he will cherish the cool performance of the current Snapdragon 8+, and then increase the frequency to Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 at this time. Can't help but worry that the experience might get worse again. Therefore, if it is between 2,700 yuan and 4,000 yuan to improve the performance of photos, improve the quality of the screen, and let everyone use a mobile phone that does not require a cooling fan and has a good experience in photography and video, it is actually fine. It is foreseeable that the number of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phones will decrease rapidly, and in December, Snapdragon 8+ and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors will bring enough mid-to-high-end products to the market. In addition to the small transparent Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and the Fire Dragon Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, we have the right to choose the Snapdragon 8+ mobile phone and get a good enough experience, which is much better than the previous generation flagship.
