On Wednesday, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC was unveiled at the Snapdragon Tech Summit. Qualcomm's next flagship platform is said to have 40% higher power efficiency than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. This chipset-powered smartphone is expected to hit the market before the end of 2022. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, on the other hand, appears to be less powerful than the Apple A16 Bionic chip that powers the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models.
Qualcomm recently introduced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which supports real-time ray-tracing for games and the 200-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HP3 sensor. Its official benchmarks have yet to be released. A rumored Vivo handset with the model number V2227A was just discovered on Geekbench.
This phone is thought to be the Vivo X90 Pro+, which is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. It received a single-core score of 1,483 and a multi-core score of 4,709 points. Meanwhile, the Apple A16 Bionic chip-powered iPhone 14 Pro has a single-core score of 1,874 points and a multi-core score of 5,372 points on Geekbench.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC is built on TSMC's 4nm process, which Apple also uses for the A16 Bionic chip. The Qualcomm chipset is said to have an Arm Cortex-X3 CPU core running at 3.2GHz, four Cortex-A715 cores running at 2.8GHz, and three Cortex-A510 cores running at 2.0GHz.
One of Vivo's forthcoming flagships will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, according to the company. As previously stated, the Vivo X90 Pro+, along with the rest of the Vivo X90 series, is expected to be released on November 22.
In related developments, the previously disclosed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor has been confirmed to power the future Moto X40 and iQoo 11 5G.
