This is the processor that will carry Android high-end mobile phones in 2022

It is very soon yet to know how the best Android phones we will see in 2022, but what we do know is already the processor that will take many of them. Qualcomm, which manufactures most mobile processors, has already advanced and the details of what will be your best chip of the year, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

If the name sounds something strange is because the company will use it as a starting point for a new image strategy. Snapdragon is going to become an independent brand and the chip nomenclature will be simplified with respect to the current one. The Snapdragon 8 GEN 1, for example, will be the substitute for the current Snapdragon 888 and will be, supposedly in 2023, the Snapdragon 8 gene 2 and so on.

The chip brings important changes both at the graph and in process capacity. It will be manufactured on the new Armv9 Architecture of ARM. The chip will have 4 low-performance cores, three middle and a very powerful core, the cortex X2, which will be used in intensive tasks and will be 20% more powerful (or 30% more efficient, according to what is required in a Time given) that the current cortex X1 of the Snapdragon 888.

Qualcomm has also advanced that graphic capabilities will be much higher thanks to a new generation of Adreno GPU, which will be 30% faster when it comes to performing the necessary calculations.

The most notable progress, however, will be in the process module dedicated to photography, which have been redesigned to provide better support for future Android cameras. Qualcomm has baptized this new component as SNAPDRAGON SIGHT and will allow operating with a higher volume gives data from the sensor.

It offers, for example, 18-bit color support instead of the 14 of the previous image processors. This number will be aid, above all, when creating high dynamic (HDR) images, as it allows you to squeeze much more information from the various catches made to generate the final image.

The module will also be able to process better nocturnal photographs thanks to its ability to automatically combine and align up to 30 consecutive shots.

Finally, the chip will include a specially designed module to help with video portrait of up to 4K resolution, which means that manufacturers will be easier for creating video recording modes that compete with "cinematic mode" of the iPhone.

The new chips will incorporate a 5G compatible modem, the X65. This modem was already sold as an additional component to manufacturers that required it on their phones, but now it will be integrated as standard in all chips.
