Xiaomi has recently confirmed the release of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra series for July 4th. At that date, we’ll see some of the first smartphones with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. However, these devices will not remain the only offerings for a long time. As per new leaks from the tipster Digital Chat Station, in July, new models of Snapdragon and Dimensity will be launched one after another. Among them, there are about 13 new models of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. After Xiaomi’s debut, we’ll see Realme, OnePlus, iQOO, Motorola, Nubia, Asus ROG, Red Magic, Lenovo, and Black Shark.
Around 13 smartphones with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC are in the pipeline
The leakster also brings some interesting details about these devices with the SD8+ Gen 1 SoC. Furthermore, the upcoming models will have a minimum of 100 W fast charging, and a maximum of 150 W fast charging. The list of devices includes the Realme GT2 Master Explorer Edition, OnePlus 10T, and iQOO 10 Standard Edition. There are two smartphones with 6.7-inch Displays and Full HD+ resolution. There is also one with a 6.78-inch panel and another one with a 6.67-inch diagonal.
As far as Motorola is concerned, the company will also introduce the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra which will not only bring the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC but will also be the world’s first smartphone with a 200 MP camera. We were expecting Xiaomi to also use this sensor, but, apparently, Xiaomi’s 200 MP smartphone will be released later. ASUS is preparing its ROG Phone 6 with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, and also a massive 6,000 mAh battery. Lenovo and Black Shark are also expected to bring Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 powered smartphones. However, details are still scarce.
On the Dimensity side of things, the Dimensity 9000 keeps being a “second option” in the flagship territory. Xiaomi will offer a tier of the Xiaomi 12S Pro with the Dimensity 9000. iQOO, on the other hand, will release a new flagship with the Dimensity 9000+ variant.
We expect more details to keep coming in the next weeks. Anyway, as you can see, July will be a hectic month for smartphone enthusiasts.
