The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chipset was supposed to be released earlier this month, but due to unanticipated delays, it will now be released in the second half of the year.
The revelation was reported by tipster Digital Chat Station, who claimed that the continuing pandemic in China was the main cause of the delay. Political leaders in the country will “undoubtedly lead to a vast number of diseases,” according to state news agency Xinhua, which will affect the economy and social growth of people’s health and lives.
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will most likely be the first phone to include the new technology, according to Digital Chat Station, due to Lenovo and Qualcomm’s “excellent relationship.” The Edge 30 Pro was the first device to be released with the 8 Generation 1.
The next Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ is expected to include an updated GPU while keeping the same CPU as the current iteration, but only time will tell.
