The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ will not arrive until the second half of 2022

Qualcomm has in its hands one of the most powerful chips of all time. We are talking about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, a chip with great processing capabilities as well as an enviable multimedia section in every way. But there are already users who are rubbing their hands thinking about the next version of the chip. Its about Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ that will not arrive until the second half of 2022.

Qualcomm delays the launch of its new chip, why?

Everything seemed that this year the technology would resume its production, although not at the level of the years before COVID. And it is that between the pandemic and the semiconductor crisis, technology companies are very aware of the number of terminals they can produce.

And it is that in this section we have to talk about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+, Qualcomm’s next chip rumored to arrive this month. Everything indicates that these forecasts will be truncated until the second half of 2022. It is not that it is a drastic change, since there are barely two months until the arrival of that time.

The problem comes when factories are forced to stop production for something as important as the health of their workers. And we have realized this a lot since 2021 with something that is still as valid as COVID.

Turns out for what it counts Phone Arena in their lines the Chinese city of Zhengzhou was closed following the ‘zero-covid’ policy due to certain outbreaks that some cities are suffering. In fact, in case you did not know, this city is where Foxconn is based, where most of the iPhones in the world are manufactured.

Now the problem also plagues Android devices, as you can see, although it seems that this problem will have a quick solution in a few months when it is expected that everything will have calmed down.

At the moment it’s time to wait and it may be that the phones that were planned to launch a couple of months from now will have to postpone the launch of their terminals until a little later than expected, as has happened to other firms. This does not imply that we do not see the relevant presentations, but it does imply a considerable delay in the arrival of the terminals on the market.
