Yesterday, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which improves on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in terms of performance and power efficiency. 16 companies have confirmed that this new chip will be at the helm of smartphones starting in Q3 2022.
The Realme GT 2 Master Explorer Edition will be one of the first Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1-powered smartphones to hit the market, according to the company’s founder and CEO, Mr. Sky Li.
