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.
Numbers on the SM8475 (Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+) are quite good. Expecting an overall 10% jump compared to 8 Gen 1. Thermals are good, chip is stable and battery life is slightly better compared to the out going model on test machines.
Looking at an early June commercial release…

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.
