Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus Has 10% More Performance and Better Thermals will available in June
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus will replace the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 by switching from Samsung’s manufacturing process to TSMC’s node. A new leak has revealed how the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus will perform.
Qualcomm is planning to replace the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus. This new chipset will be unveiled in the coming months, and a new leak has revealed some details about what to expect.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, internally coded as the SM8475 versus the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s SM8450, is expected to be commercially available in early June, according to Yogesh Brar. According to previous reports, the chipset will be released in May, so Qualcomm may release the SoC in May, while the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus-powered phones will be available in June.
In terms of performance, the leaker estimates a 10% improvement over the vanilla Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. That means it will likely outperform the MediaTek Dimensity 9000, a chipset that is already built on the same TSMC node as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus. However, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus is said to be more stable than the SM8450, with better thermals and battery life.
