Qualcomm recently announced the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 smartphoneProprocessor on. And OPPO already confirmed that this will power the forthcoming Find X flagship next year.

Qualcomm always holds events in Hawaii towards the end of the year. This happened again this year and prompt became the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 presented.

OPPO was of course right at the start with a few other companies. They announced that next year's Find-X flagship will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. More details have been added to the Find X4 Pro or the Find X5 Pro (possibly one number will be skipped next year) not mentioned. What is clear is that it will appear as expected in the first half of next year.

What can the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 do?

The new naming runs through all new and future Snapdragon chips. A very controversial new feature, the "Always-On-Camera", caused a lot of privacy concerns after the announcement. Personally, I think one should wait and not paint the devil on the wall too soon. Maybe it can be very practical.

Gaming has always been Snapdragon's forte. The latest "dragon" also has new gaming features such as Volumetric Rendering or VRS PRO. That means you can render a game in 1080p, but with these new technologies it still looks like you're playing at a QHD+ resolution.

Close relationship with Qualcomm: how much longer?

“We launched several 5G smartphones this year powered by a Snapdragon flagship cellular platform, including the Find X3 series. We are very happy to be part of the launch of the new Snapdragon® 8 generation. And we are convinced that it will bring significant improvements and high-performance performance for the new generation of flagship smartphones. "

That all sounds very promising. Only OPPO has been working on its own SoC for mobile devices for several years. "Project Mariana” this should probably be called internally. There is not exactly little in its own SoC.

Advantages would be cheaper, for example Proproduction costs and longer software support. We should see the OPPO SoC in a smartphone as early as 2023. Will the manufacturer release the last Snapdragon smartphones next year? I personally don't think so. OPPO will probably only use its first own SoC in a high-endProduct a. The cheaper models will continue to rely on Snapdragons or rather Dimensitys from MediaTek. In the past, these were mainly responsible for sufficient performance in the Reno devices.

In any case, it remains very exciting about OPPO and your own SoC. But now one thing is certain: Snapdragon will continue next year.

What do you think of OPPO's future plans and of course the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1? Let me know in the comments.
