Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 logo leaks days before Qualcomm's big announcement

Peter, 26 November 2021

What’s this now – a Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1? A logo for a new Qualcomm chip was spotted in a staging site for the company by @Za_Raczke just days before the big announcement.

The title of the page is “Testing icon” and the icon in question sits besides a “Test123” label. Clearly this is a template that is meant to be filled in with real text (that is the point of the staging site), but that hasn’t happened yet.

But the name of the new flagship chipset was supposed to be “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1”. Qualcomm didn’t actually confirm the exact name, it just referred to “our newest flagship Snapdragon 8-series platform”. So it’s possible that the 8-series chips will actually be named “8Gx”.

Qualcomm already has chips named “8cx”, the flagship offerings for Windows-on-ARM laptops. There is also an 8c, which sits just below the 8cx, and an entry-level 7c. If “c” stands for “computer”, what does the “G” stand for?

According to the current naming scheme, some chipsets get a “G” suffix to denote higher clock speeds for the GPU, e.g. the Snapdragon 765 and 765G. And the “x” simply means high-end.

The big event is set for November 30 (Tuesday), join us then to find out what this Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 business is all about.
