Qualcomm accidentally reveals Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 launch date

Yordan, 28 June 2022

Qualcomm usually unveils its new flagship chipset on the first weekend of December but this year we expect it two weeks earlier. The official website of the San Diego chip company scheduled a Snapdragon Summit for November 14-17, which is likely when we’ll see the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

The event was later taken down from the website, and while it could be a false flag, we are keen to believe the chip is really coming in November. That would allow makers like Xiaomi and Motorola to get into the race of being the first maker to launch a phone with the new chip.

Qualcomm does not unveil the date for its summit in Hawaii as early as five months ahead, so we believe it was a true slip-up by the team in California. There is still enough time for the rumor mill to keep going and allow us to piece the puzzle of the SM8550 platform. The first rumors suggested an unusual 1+2+2+3 CPU combo with one Cortex-X3 unit, two Cortex-A720, two A710, and three A510.
