This whistleblower has announced that the chip will be available to users in June (June-July). Meanwhile, in recent weeks, some sources have announced the possibility of introducing this chip in May (May-June). So Qualcomm may unveil the chip in May, and the first handsets based on it will be available in June. In terms of performance, the whistleblower claims to offer about 10 percent better performance than the standard model.
Some time ago, a Korean news agency reported that in late June or early July (mid-July) The first phone based on Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 Plus will reach users. Although the name of the phone is not mentioned in this report, it is said that Chinese users will get this phone sooner than users from other countries. This means that one of the Chinese companies will introduce the Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 Plus based phone sooner than the competitors. According to some rumors, it seems that we will see the unveiling of the OnePlus 10 Ultra in the same time frame. But on the other hand, the same rumors say that the phone in question uses Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 and there will be no news about the Plus model of this chip.
In this regard, we should mention MediaTek's efforts to offer a faster model of the 9000 Density chip to compete with the Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 Plus. At present, Dimension 9000 is a very powerful competitor in the field of Qualcomm's flagship chip. It should be noted that this chip is produced by TSMC, but Samsung is the manufacturer of Snapdragon 8 Generation 1. Meanwhile, Samsung's poor performance in producing this chip has been criticized by Qualcomm executives. Some experts believe that problems such as overheating of the chip are largely due to the way it is made in Samsung factories. Qualcomm executives also seem to believe this, and as a result, production of the Plus model of the chip has been outsourced to Taiwanese company TSMC.
Now that the Snapdragon 8 Plus 1 model is to be built by TSMC, In addition to the promised performance improvement, it also offers better performance in terms of heat and energy consumption. It should be noted that overall TSMC has the best performance in terms of chip production, which is why Apple has outsourced its chip production to the company for many years. Not published. The Diamond 9000 currently uses a powerful Cortex-X2 kernel clocked at 3.5 GHz. Some rumors have reported that the same core but with a speed of 3.20 GHz in the Plus model. However, Qualcomm is still a long way from MediaTek in terms of GPUs, and it remains to be seen whether the GPU on this new MediaTek chip will be able to close the gap on Snapdragon's latest chip. In any case, the companies' competition for better chips is good news for users, because in the end, this competition will reduce the price of the chips in question and improve their quality.
