Its official Qualcomm’s next flagship chip will be called Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 instead of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Snapdragon 898. The chip’s new logo with the official name has been spotted by Twitter user @Za_Raczke on a staging site belonging to Qualcomm.
He also reveals that the web page has been titled “Testing Icon” and holds the new icon with “Test123” accompanying it. This clearly shows that this is a template or placeholder meant to be filled with the actual text once Qualcomm officially reveals the chip at its big event, which is set to be held on November 30 (Tuesday).
And we also think that this new naming scheme is not as fresh as we had thought. Qualcomm has had a similar naming scheme for its older Windows-ARM chip, which was called 8cx, accompanied by its other lower-end 8c and 7c chips. In this naming scheme, the ‘c’ stands for “computer” while the ‘x’ stands for “high-end.”
While the new name seems like a weird combination of the aforementioned naming scheme combined with its current naming scheme, the ‘G’ suffix corresponds to chips with higher clock speeds, as we have seen with Snapdragon 765G, 750G and so on.
Overall, although the new naming scheme seems to be slightly confusing at first, we can still expect that it will make a whole lot of sense once Qualcomm reveals the names of all its new chips at the official event. We are very excited and can’t wait to see what Qualcomm has been working on behind the scenes all this time.
