Rumored name changes for Snapdragon chips reportedly confirmed by Qualcomm
Qualcomm reportedly tested out two different naming systems with over 2,000 customers. The new naming scheme could be announced next week when Qualcomm is supposed to unveil the next 800 series chipset. What is unclear is how Qualcomm will account for multiple chips in the same series such as the Snapdragon 888 and the Snapdragon 870.
If we might wager a guess, that could be where the generation number comes into play. For example, the Snapdragon 8 gen1 could be the name for the flagship 8 series chipset while another slightly less powerful 8 series component could be the Snapdragon 8 gen2.
The Snapdragon name was first used by Qualcomm in 2007 with the Snapdragon S1. It was the first processor made for mobile to run at 1GHz and was built using the 65nm process node (how far we’ve come).
