Despite that many smartphones are rumoured to feature the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ made by TSMC, the chip could still face delay. According to reputable tipster Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ would only arrive by the second half of 2022.

The reason could be the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, which might have affected the production of the chip. Earlier rumours have been pointing towards later this month for the launch, but it seems like it won't be happening after all.

The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is said to be the first smartphone to arrive with the chip. However, it's rumoured to be coming in June, which is basically telling us that it would no longer be the case if the delay happened. The source states that Lenovo and Qualcomm have maintained a "good relationship. Therefore, the Edge 30 Ultra may still be the first device to get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. 

With the delay of the chip, many of the smartphones that are scheduled to launch around the same time frame could be moved to later dates as well. Leave a comment to let us know what you think about this, and stay tuned to TechNave.com for more tech news.
