The upcoming phones set to debut with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 this year
Following the introduction of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, many flagship smartphones like the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Xiaomi 13 Ultra, and OnePlus 11 offered the latest processor by Qualcomm. We know that Qualcomm works on a brand new chipset and early reports suggest that the new chipset will deliver a performance improvement of over 5% compared to its predecessor.
The latest rumors now shed light on which phones will be equipped with the upcoming Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chipset. As per information shared by a well known tech blogger, Redmi K60 Ultra, OnePlus 11T (known as OnePlus Ace 2 Pro in China), iQOO 11S, and realme GT Neo5 Pro will come with the latest processors from MediaTek and Qualcomm. Here’s what the Chinese blogger reveals.
Out of these four phones, three will feature Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chipset, while one will come with MediaTek Dimensity 9200+. Additionally, there is diversity in terms of screen resolutions, with three phones boasting 1.5K resolution and one featuring a 2K display.
Note that the upcoming OnePlus 11T is referred to as OnePlus Ace 2 Pro in the Chinese market. The previous models, OnePlus 10T and realme GT Neo5, featured the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
Given that the upcoming phones are expected to be unveiled in the next months, it’s worth noting that these four devices, rather than the flagship models of OEMs, will lead the pack by utilizing the fastest chipset in the Android world. While they may not super powerful in terms of camera experience, they should perform pretty strong if they will come with fancy cooling solutions we have on flagship devices.
