What to expect from the Qualcomm Summit 2022
Qualcomm’s annual summit, as mentioned before, is the time when the company launches its fastest and the most advanced chipset. At this year’s summit, Qualcomm will be launching the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset that will succeed last year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.
Reports suggest that Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 system-on-chip (SoC) is likely to be produced by TSMC and use a 4nm fabrication process. Furthermore, reports suggest that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip will be based on a slightly different layout with a 1+2+2+3 arrangement made up of a single Cortex A73 core, two Cortex A720 cores, two Cortex A710 cores, and three Cortex A510 cores.
Tipster Digital Chat Station via a post Weibo said that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip will clock speeds as fast as 3.4-3.5GHz on the prime core and a report by Ice Universe says the chip will primarily focus on power efficiency.
Snapdragon 8 Gen2 (sm8550) performed very well in the initial test of energy efficiency, at least better than 888 / 8gen1 / 8 + GEN1. For Samsung S23, Exynos has no reason to continue to exist. The gap between Exynos and Snapdragon will only grow.

Beyond this, we also expect the company to announce updates in the field of augment reality (AR) and mixed reality (VR) and gaming among other things.
Qualcomm is also hosting executives from various companies such as Samsung, Microsoft, Niantic, Adobe, Oppo, Sony, Verizon and T-Mobile at the event. So, it is possible that the company shares the names of companies whose smartphones will be the first ones in the market to get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
