Here is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

Qualcomm’s next-generation flagship chip promises 35% better computing performance with 40% more efficiency, while graphics capabilities have increased by 25% with 45% more energy efficiency. These are pretty big numbers, in practice the thermal properties and stability will obviously be the decisive factor in judging the completely new design set.

Clocks are the same as Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, but Gen 2 is 3.2 GHz based on Cortex-X3 In addition to the Kryo Prime core, there are four performance-oriented (Performance) cores working at 2.8 GHz, and the energy-efficient cluster includes three at a maximum of 2 GHz Cortex-A510 seed was spent. There are two in the Perfomance set Cortex-A715 core ensures 64-bit compatibility, the two previous ones And the Cortex-A710 unit supports the 32-bit architecture. Of course, the set cooperates with the latest memory standards, such as LPDDR5x system memory and UFS 4.0 internal storage.

In addition to significantly higher performance and better energy efficiency, the graphic processing unit supports Vulkan 1.3 and hardware-level ray tracing, and is the first to provide the Unreal Engine 5 Metahuman Framework support, which enables photorealistic character rendering.

The set supports 144 Hz image refresh at QHD+ resolution and 4K panels at 60 Hz, the AV1 codec also enables 8K 60 fps stream in addition to HDR, and on an external display the 4K 60 fps quality is the maximum HDR10+ and Dolby Vision with support. In the case of video recordings, the 8K 30 fps frame rate is also an option, and the HDR10+, HLG and Dolby Vision formats.

It handles up to three cameras at the same time 18-bit ISP is willing to cooperate with a maximum of 200 megapixel sensors, or with three 32 megapixel units, and 108 megapixel sensors can work with zero shutter delay. The Sony Digital Overlap HDR (DOL-HDR) sensors and Samsung 200MP HP3 is uniquely optimized, and image processing is supported by the new Cognitive AI.

The new INT4 Hexagon AI processor supports artificial intelligence with 4.35 times better performance, for example in image processing and translation tasks, with 60% better energy efficiency per watt compared to previous solutions.

The FastConnect 78000 provides speeds of up to 5.8 Gbps on WiFi 7 standard (802.11be), and the X70 5G modem reaches 10 Gbps download and 3.5 Gbps upload speeds on mmWave and sub-6GHz networks. On the part of the new modem, there is no obstacle to the dual SIM dual active mode, so two cards can be active on the network at the same time in a 4G+5G or 5G+5G combination, and by the way, the Snapdragon is the first in the history of the sets. Bluetooth 5.3 and Snapdragon Sound not only offer a 48kHz lossless audio stream, but the lowest latency ever during gaming at 48 milliseconds.

Asus ROG, Honor, iQOO, Motorola, Nubia, OnePlus, Oppo, Red Magic, Sharp, Sony, Vivo, Xiaomi, Meizu and We will be able to try it in ZTE devices, and in February Samsung will of course also join in, but in the case of the Galaxy S23 series, it is not yet entirely clear whether the new models will come exclusively with Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line set manufactured on the TSMC node this year, or whether there will be a regional difference. According to the current situation, the former scenario is more likely, but we will wait and see.
