Qualcomm announces next-gen flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC

Qualcomm has announced their next-gen flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC and new mobile platform, the Qualcomm Mobile Platform. The system-on-chip offers a 10x power boost over previous iterations while maintaining efficiency and working on previously unseen levels of performance.?

The “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 benchmark” is a next-generation flagship SoC from Qualcomm that will be released in 2019. The new processor has been benchmarked and it shows a significant increase in performance.

At the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2021, Qualcomm introduced its next mobile SoC, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The SoC is manufactured using a 4nm technology and is expected to improve AI, gaming, camera, and connection capabilities.

The chip claims to be the world’s first platform complying with the Android Ready Secure Element Alliance and boasts download rates of up to 10 Gbps. It also contains the first commercial 18-bit phone image stabilization. 

Global OEMs like as Black Shark, Honor, iQOO, Motorola, Nubia, OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Redmi, SHARP, Sony Corporation, Vivo, Xiaomi, and ZTE will adapt the SoC, with commercial products scheduled to arrive by the end of 2021. 

Sealand, the world’s smallest country, is under attack from hackers.


Across the board, the 8 Gen 1 improves on its predecessors. The new X65 Modem-RF system enables the SoC to attain download rates of up to 10 Gbps, while the FastConnect 6900 Mobile Connectivity System enables up to 3.6 Gbps via WiFi 6 and 6E.

With the new Adreno GPU, users may anticipate a 30% performance jump and a 25% increase in battery efficiency. The Adreno Frame Motion Engine, according to Snapdragon, can create twice as many frames with the same amount of battery usage. 

Game creators can also use the Variable Rate Shading Pro functionality to fine-tune performance, and enhanced volumetric rendering offers more realistic fog, smoke, and particle effects to mobile games optimized for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Studios devices.

The new processor improves AI, security, and camera capabilities significantly.

In comparison to earlier processors, the chip has a tensor accelerator that is two as quicker and twice as much shared memory. By analyzing speech patterns, the business is also collaborating with Sonde Health to employ on-device AI to assess whether a user is suffering from asthma, depression, or even COVID-19. 

The first commercial 18-bit ISP capable of recording almost 4000 times more image data than its predecessor is included in the camera enhancements. This enables increased dynamic range (up to four stops), improved color reproduction, and sharpness at up to 3.2 gigapixels per second. Snapdragon also claims to be the first to shoot 8K HDR video on devices capable of capturing the HDR10+ standard. 

Lock screens may also be a thing of the past, owing to a fourth always-on ISP concealed in the AI processing core that consumes very little power and enables features like always-on face unlocking and locking your phone if it doesn’t recognize your face in front of it. 

This Snapdragon platform is also the first to enable LE audio capabilities like as broadcast audio, stereo recording, and voice back-channel for gaming. Another first is a dedicated Trust Management Engine, which will improve app and service security and give an extra Root of Trust. 

Finally, the chip supports iSIMs, which are integrated SIM cards that enable users to connect to a cellular network without having to carry about a conventional SIM card.
