At last, Qualcomm has introduced the successor of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip today. It turns out that we have been calling it the wrong name, as the company put the plus sign after the eight rather than one, so it's Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

Qualcomm claims that the chip will bring a 10 percent processing speed increase and 20 percent higher performance-per-Watt for AI. Furthermore, a 30 percent power reduction is also in the picture, offering an extra hour gameplay on your flagship Android device. The chip manufacturer expects products to begin launching in the third quarter from brands like ASUS, HONOR, Motorola, OnePlus, OPPO and Xiaomi. We can't wait to see how they will utilize the chip for their latest powerful flagship phones!

Furthermore, the chip also features support for shooting using three cameras simultaneously, on-chip data security upgrades, and audio upgrades that appeared on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
