Qualcomm presented the new-generation flagship chip yesterday, and manufacturers are trying to seize the opportunity to be the first to present a device equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. It is relatively amusing that at least seven manufacturers have announced, preferably on Weibo, that they will be the first. Well, now this is obviously impossible, so you can guess who will be the runner-up.
Last year, Motorola took the lead at the beginning of December with the Moto Edge X30, this year it is the same plan with the Moto Edge X40 series, which has already visited the Chinese Communications Authority. OnePlus has also indicated that it is competing with the OnePlus 11 series, although the first quarter of 2023 is likely to be too late for a podium spot, probably meaning that the first OnePlus appliance.
Xiaomi is heading towards the finish line with the 13 series, at Oppo the Oppo Find X6 Pro will be the first to receive the latest set, and the ZTE group is preparing with the Red Magic 8 Pro, the Nubia Z50 and the Axon 50. Meizu is a surprise starter in the competition, and according to them, under the auspices of Geely, it intends to immediately return to the market with a top model at the beginning of next year.
Vivo, on the other hand, raises the stakes with the X90 models and the IQOO 11 series, these devices have already passed Geekbench, and the X90 Pro+ can be presented as early as next Tuesday, so it will soon be clear who will be the first to present the most powerful Android device available this year .
