All high-end phones that have been confirmed with the presentation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, The new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is now official . The new Qualcomm processor arrives ready to give an extra power, artificial intelligence and photography to high-end mobiles that will fight for the podium in 2021 and, how could it be otherwise, the brands have not hesitated to announce their plans .
Throughout today, several companies have confirmed that their next high-end models will be among the first to incorporate the new Qualcomm chip . Therefore, in this article we have compiled everything we know so far and, incidentally, what other brands are likely to opt for this solution.
Motorola and your Motorola Edge X 30
We started with Motorola for a simple reason. So far, it is the only firm that has given a release date for its next high-end: December 9. We are talking about the Motorola Edge X 30 (we do not know if it will arrive with that name to the Spanish market or will do it as Edge 20, Edge 30 Ultra or Edge X).
The device is He will present next week in China and a lot is expected from him. In addition to being, unless another firm is ahead of it, the first mobile to mount the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 , the leaks suggest an AMOLED screen of 144 Hz almost 6.7 inches, cameras (wide and wide angle) of 50 megapixels and a -on paper- spectacular camera Front of 97 megapixels.
Xiaomi and his Xiaomi 12
The second brand that concerns us today is Xiaomi. The Chinese firm has confirmed that the Xiaomi 12 will mount this processor and, in fact, assures that it will be the “world debut of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1″. However, it has not confirmed a launch date, so we have several options.
The first is that next week Xiaomi will take an event out of its sleeve before the December 9 to announce the device , something that would not be strange since the company itself has ensured that the Xiaomi 12 is already in production . The second is that it arrives after December 9, something that is also likely.
In any case, Xiaomi’s words suggest that the presentation of Xiaomi 12 It is just around the corner. And it is curious, of course, because it has not been a mobile that has been leaked excessively. There is talk of a peculiar module for cameras , fast charge of 200 W and a sensor 256 megapixels and an inch , but nothing too forceful.
OPPO and the probable OPPO Find X4 Pro
OPPO Find X3 Pro.
In third position we have OPPO. The company has been more cautious than the previous two and has not revealed the name of the terminal that will debut the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but knowing the company and seeing its trajectory, everything points to a more than likely OPPO Find X4 Pro.
The OPPO Find X3 Pro mounts the Snapdragon SoC 888, so most likely its spiritual successor assembled the latest from Qualcomm. In any case, the truth is that OPPO does not expressly mention the Find X4 Pro at any time. OPPO’s words are as follows :
” its next flagship smartphone, which will be released globally in the first quarter of 2022, will feature the new premium mobile platform Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, becoming one of the first companies to adopt it. ” Realme and Realme GT 2 Pro
Render of the Realme GT 2 Pro.
Although Realme has already released some than another high-end (arrived on the Spanish market with the Realme X2 Pro ), the truth is that the company has not yet dared to launch a full-fledged premium terminal. However, thanks to Sky Li, its founder, we know that the Realme GT 2 Pro will be. According to the executive , “GT 2 Pro: like this it’s how we’re going to name our first and most premium flagship. ”
It is not strange, therefore, that the company itself has confirmed through its social networks that the Realme GT 2 Pro will mount the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 . This device, which also has leaked in all its glory , it aims to bear some resemblance to the Google Nexus 6P in terms of design.
Also, the leaks suggest that it will have a AMOLED 2K screen with high refresh rate , an angle and a wide angle of 50 megapixels, as well as a telephoto of eight megapixels, and up to 12 GB of RAM LPDDR5 and 256 GB of internal storage UFS 3.1. In any case, at the moment there is no release date.
Those who have not yet spoken
These are the companies that, at the time these lines are written, have confirmed that they are going to bet on the new Qualcomm SoC, but they are not the only ones by far. Qualcomm itself has been in charge of unveil which other firms will opt for their new creation
Among the companies mentioned are find Black Shark (gaming mobiles), Honor, IQOO (the gaming sub-brand of I live in China), Nubia (probably on a Red Magic), OnePlus , SHARP , Sony , Live , ZTE and, interestingly, Redmi .
There are brands that it is not surprising to see on the list. It is normal that gaming mobiles are going to bet on this processor and that other manufacturers are going to implement it in their most premium devices, but the case of Redmi is certainly curious . Redmi is Xiaomi’s most affordable brand and, while it is true that it has launched high-end mobiles (such as the Redmi K 36 Pro + ), we are used to mid-range terminals and mid-high range.
