Qualcomm introduced Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset which will power flagship smartphones. The first device powered by that platform is expected to be released by the end of this year.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor includes new Elite Gaming features such as real-time hardware-accelerated ray-tracing, a 25% improvement in GPU performance, and a 40% boost in power efficiency. It uses the X70 5G modem and an AI Processor compatible with mobile technology to improve coverage, speeds, latency, and power usage. It is the first Snapdragon platform to support two 5G SIMs at the same time. The FastConnect 7800 connectivity system features Wi-Fi 7 compatibility and dual Bluetooth connectivity.

Qualcomm claims that the new Hexagon processor will deliver faster natural language processing with multi-language translation and advanced AI camera features. The chip offers camera improvements including better detection of facial features, hair, and clothes to optimize photos and videos. Qualcomm named ASUS RoG, Honor, OnePlus, Oppo, and Xiaomi among vendors planning to use the chip.
