Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3: What We Know So Far About Qualcomm’s Next-Gen Chipset. Qualcomm, a company closely associated with high-end Android devices, is rumored to be working on a next-generation release, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.


The chip is expected to arrive later this year with significant improvements over the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The eight-core Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected to use derivatives of new, unannounced Arm core designs and, notably, shift the configuration of the performance clusters. Two Cortex-A500 series cores from Arm’s new Hayes series will be used in the 8 Gen 3, one less than on the 8 Gen 2. A mid-pack performance cluster gets the missing core with a total of five Hunter A700-series cores, three of which will be “Gold” while two will be “Titanium,” the first such instance of this compute core tier in a Qualcomm product. A top-tier Hunter ELP X-series core rounds out the package.


The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is dropping 32-bit support, meaning the chipset will only support 64-bit architecture by default. There’s mention of the Adreno 750 GPU being on board with a clock speed of 770 MHz. However, that could change as the chipmaker makes further modifications to the GPU ahead of its wider release. The chip is said to be supporting Linux Kernel 6.1 on Android 14.


The new chip will be known internally as Lanai or Pineapple, with the screenshot below of Qualcomm’s code showing a reference to the latter. The last bit of info coming from researcher Kuba Wojciechowski isn’t particularly surprising, with the chip said to be supporting Linux Kernel 6.1 on Android 14.

Qualcomm’s partnership with manufacturers like Samsung makes it a safe bet to assume that the Galaxy S24, expected to be released early next year, will feature this chipset. Companies like Xiaomi and Nubia should also be high up on the list to be among the first to have a phone featuring Qualcomm’s newest mobile chip.


It’s worth noting that all of this information is based on leaks and rumors, so we can’t confirm anything until Qualcomm officially announces the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Nonetheless, this news will likely excite Android enthusiasts and those interested in high-end mobile devices, as Qualcomm’s chips have a reputation for providing top-notch performance and powering some of the most popular smartphones on the market.
