Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC last year in October at the Snapdragon Summit hosted in Hawaii, and we have now learned that this year's Snapdragon Summit will also be held in October, where the chipmaker will introduce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.

This revelation comes from Qualcomm CMO Don McGuire, who, in a video posted on X from the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC), said the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will use the Oryon CPU. You can watch the two-minute video below.

Before announcing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, Qualcomm is expected to introduce another Snapdragon 8 Gen series chip. It has model designation SM8635 and is tipped to include one Cortex-X4 core clocked at 2.9GHz, with the graphically intensive tasks handled by the Adreno 735 GPU.

This chip is rumored to be manufactured on TSMC's 4nm node and has an AnTuTu score of around 1.7 million. It will likely be positioned between the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Gen 3 and is expected to be called the Snapdragon 8s Gen 2 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Lite.
