The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is Qualcomm’s next processor for high-end smartphones in 2022. It’s the first chip to utilize the business’s new name and branding scheme.
The Arm Cortex X2 Prime core of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 features a 1 3 4 configuration with a maximum clock speed of 3GHz (2.995GHz, precisely). There are four Cortex A51s Efficiency cores running at 1.8GHz and three 2.5GHz Cortex A71 Performance cores.
Overall, the Kryo CPU is 20% quicker while using 30% less power. The 888 continues to support up to 16GB of LPDDR5 (3200MHz) memory. Additionally, the Adreno GPU is 30% quicker with 25% less power consumption because it is now constructed using a 4nm (from 5) technology.
With the focus on numerous key initiatives, Qualcomm is
Gen 1 Snapdragon 8 A new 18-bit Spectra ISP (image signal processor) for photography can store 4,096 times as much camera data as its 14-bit predecessor. In actuality, this translates to 240 12MP photos every second. Video-wise, 64MP photos can be captured simultaneously in 8K HDR at 30FPS. Additionally, you can concurrently take three 36MP images with different lenses or one 200MP photo with a single lens. The following are the maximum sensor configurations: Triple camera up to 36 MP at 30 frames per second with no shutter lag Dual camera up to 64 36 MP at 30 frames per second with no shutter lag 108 MP single camera at 30 frames per second with no shutter lag In addition to an AI processor, DSP, and RAM, the third generation sensing hub adds an always-on ISP to the fourth generation of 8 Gen 1s. As a result, the front-facing camera can
run with incredibly low power consumption for always-on face unlock that enables locking even when your face isn’t there. The 7th Gen AI Engine is 4x faster than the previous generation at AI tasks, speaking of machine learning workloads.
To showcase the hardware
In addition, Qualcomm is promoting several software alliances. While Sonde Health can leverage the on-device AI advances to analyze vocal patterns to track physical and mental health/fitness, there are integrated Leica Leitz Looks filters that replicate the bokeh and color style of the camera brand. This calls for explicitly looking for ailments including COVID-19, depression, and asthma. Additionally, Hugging Face’s natural language processing allows your device to evaluate, intelligently group, and prioritize all of your alerts. It will be interesting to observe how consumers and OEMs respond to these features. A 4th Gen Snapdragon X65 5G modem with up to 10Gbps, Wi-Fi 6 and 6E speeds (up to 3.6Gbps), and Bluetooth 5.2 are among the other features. The chip also supports Android Ready SE for digital licenses and car keys and has a Trust Management Engine.
Black Shark, Honor, iQOO, Motorola, Nubia, OnePlus, Opposite, Realme, Sharp, Sony, Vivo, Xiaomi, and ZTE will all use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. By the end of 2021, the first gadget is anticipated.
