A new report from Android Authority shows that Qualcomm will change the name of its chip called Snapdragon, which means Snapdragon 898 will have to change the name. The possibility was raised a few days ago and now the US company confirms this change. However, Qualcomm representatives did not reveal that their new chip will guarantee something from now on, but only share some related information.
The news comes a week before Qualcomm's annual event in Hawaii begins. This year's Snapdragon Summit will take place from November 30 to December 1, and it is not surprising that Qualcomm's new high-end chip will be announced as soon as the conference begins. It's basically time for Qualcomm to share any details for the upcoming high-end chip.
Talking about the new name, Qualcomm praises that it is a shorter and simpler name. The first is that the word "Qualcomm" will disappear from the official name of the processor chips.
Second, the three-digit scheme will be dropped in favor of a single-digit one. This change raises some questions when we consider very similar processors, such as Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 870.
The top line is also guaranteed to continue starting with the number 8, indicating that other product lines will follow this philosophy. In fact, Qualcomm surveyed more than 2,000 customers with two different options for naming their products.
The first sign of the Snapdragon chip's name change was given by leaker Ice Universe. In one of his tweets, this account said that the Snapdragon 898 made for the ultimate era will be called "Snapdragon 8 gen1".
Now everyone has to wait for the Snapdragon Summit 2021 event to know what the future high-end chip from Qualcomm will be called. During the event, there is no doubt when all the news will be announced.
