Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ will not be released until the second half of 2022

Qualcomm was rumoured to introduce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor this month, but a leakster from China stated we are more likely to see the platform come in the second half of the year. The reason, according to Digital Chat Station, who is typically spot on with such reports, is China's present pandemic condition.

We heard rumors just two months ago that Qualcomm was on track to release its new 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ flagship processor in May, with actual phones powered by it expected in June, but we now hear that those plans have been pushed back and that the powerful new chip will instead arrive in the second half of the year.

According to the Chinese state news agency Xinhua, easing of controls will "undoubtedly lead to a vast number of illnesses," wreaking havoc on the economy and social development of people's lives and health.

Following China's "zero-covid" policy, the Chinese city of Zhengzhou has been placed under lockdown. Because of the massive Foxconn factory there, which produces the majority of the world's iPhones, Zhengzhou is also known as iPhone City.
These restrictions appear to be affecting not only iPhone production but also Qualcomm's newest chip.

Lenovo and Qualcomm have a "good relationship," according to Digital Chat Station, implying that the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will be the first phone to use the new technology. After all, the Edge 30 Pro (also known as the Edge X30 in China) was the first smartphone to use Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The name "Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+" is still a rumour, but the GPU is expected to get a bump while the CPU stays the same as the current flagship - one powerful Cortex-X2 at (nearly) 3 GHz, three extra Cortex-A710 performance units, and four Cortex-A510 efficiency cores.
