The arrival of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is just around the corner. Before that happens, we have some new information regarding the next-gen flagship chip, with a tipster claiming that it will bring "great improvements" in several aspects.

According to tipster Ice Universe, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will pack "greatly improved" GPU, NPU, and ISP. However, not many details got revealed. The tipster continues to mention that the Cortex-X3 core is expected to offer up to an 11-per cent IPC increase over the previous one, the Cortex-X2, alongside confirming the model number SM8550.

Despite being a 4nm chip like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the upcoming chip will sport a four-cluster architecture instead of a tri-cluster setup. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 should utilize three Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 2.0GHz, two Cortex-A710 cores set at 2.8GHz, two Cortex-A715 cores at 2.8GHz, and one Cortex-X3 core at 3.2GHz.
