Qualcomm’s Snapdragon: How Is It?
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform rose to prominence as it manufactured the most used Android chips in the market since the emergence of smartphones and up to the present. The smartphone platform of Android is the only device that outsources chip production from external companies, as a known rival, Apple, is known to design its popular A-bionic series chips.
The popular Snapdragon platform has evolved since then, focusing on the many offers it has for the smartphone device including the latest 5G, a capability to run games and massive tasks, and overall function. Now, it is taking on a new form and look that focuses more on the new name it has, the 8 Gen 1, which is a new step for the company.
Nevertheless, Qualcomm has been somehow secretive about it, not revealing any details until its Tech Summit release this 2021, having it as an anticipated release where people can enjoy it with smartphones. Its arrival on Android would bring a new focus of the semiconductor, and moving forward, it would bring its features and functions to Androids in the coming year.
