The teaser hints that an upgraded chipset from Qualcomm will be announced at the launch event on May 20. The launch event will be live-streamed for the global audience and has the title “new products”. Currently, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is the flagship chipset from Qualcomm which is used in flagship phones like Samsung Galaxy S22 series.

Qualcomm will announce an upgraded version of it’s flagship chipset named Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus which will be used in flagship Android devices that will launch in the second half of the year. This upgraded chipset is manufactured by Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC instead of Samsung.


The upgraded chipset will bring improvements in GPU over it’s predecessor. Previously, as well all the Plus variants of chipset launched by Qualcomm only bring improvements in GPU performance only.
