The America-based chip manufacturer Qualcomm is doing all to extent level up its flagship chipsets build to fix beneath Android smartphones at the utmost of its can, that can be seen in leaks of Snapdragon 8 Gen 3…….!!
Prepping for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Qualcomm is leading to several unfurl around the industry therefore a tweeter Kuba Wojciechowski has freshly tweeted “a thread with some of the first details about Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, apparently codenamed either “Lanai” or “Pineapple.”
The layout reportedly will be adopted as 2+3+2+1, which will go differ from it prior version which was a 1+4+3 configuration in 8 Gen 2. Consisting of two Arm “Hunter” (A7xx) cores, the new cluster comes from the “titanium” cluster. The full layout would include two A5xx cores, three A7xx cores, two A7xx cores, and a single “gold+” core. It’s not currently known how the “titanium” cluster would vary.
Though assuredly it could be said before knowing when Kuba speculates including more cache or could be clocked higher could be featured differently.
Back to the cores, Arm codename Hayes and Hunter (ELP) are brand new, unannounced CPU cores replacing the whole current line-up.
They drop support for 32-bit completely, meaning that 8 Gen 3 will be 64-bit-only. This is also confirmed by Qualcomm’s code. https://t.co/VSHvbFiKMD pic.twitter.com/Hgcb8YHOv1

Impressively, said in the same tweet “replace the whole current lineup” there are new cores from Arm. These new chips also apparently drop support for 32-bit entirely, going 64-bit only. Not Surprising, as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 already pulled back on 32-bit support to an extent, and Android has been pushing in that direction for a while.
It’s eventual to say, in Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Qualcomm upgrades the GPU to Adreno 750, with a (current) maximum frequency of 770 MHz. The chip also supports Linux kernel 6.1 and Android 14.
Well, rumors go otherwise to its prior Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 that Qualcomm announced in November 2022 for the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will further make you wait.
