A Weibo tipster said today that Motorola will be the first to launch the new generation of Snapdragon 8 flagship processor in December. Moreover, it will launch a new phone sporting the Snapdragon 888 Plus chip. So if this news is true, Motorola will get real advantages over its more powerful rivals. But if we knew about the Motorola Edge X, the second phone leaks for the first time.
The price of this new Snapdragon 888+ phone is going to be much lower than that of some flagship phones during Double 11. In this regard, Chen Jin, general manager of Lenovo’s mobile phone business department in China, said that the performance of the new Snapdragon 888+ phone is quite powerful. At the same time, the price will be surprising.
Qualcomm’s 2021 Snapdragon Technology Summit will be held from November 30 to December 2, 2021. At that time, the company will unleash a new generation of Snapdragon flagship platform. This new flagship SoC may be named Snapdragon 8 Gen1. Also, we know it is going to use Samsung’s 4nm process.
