Qualcomm and Samsung Considering Dual-Sourcing for Upcoming Snapdragon 8 Chips

The American multinational Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets widely get featured in various premium smartphones, such as the members of Samsung’s Galaxy S flagship. Specifically, the Snapdragon 8 lineup processors have performed outstandingly in the market. Regarding the future Snapdragon 8 chips, some information is being spread on the internet, which is related to its developing process. So, let’s know what it says.

As per the reports, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 chips are said to follow dual-sourcing options. If we talk about the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor (used in the Galaxy S23 series) was built on TSMC’s 4nm process technology. As for the future Snapdragon 8 SoCs, they will use both the cutting-edge N3E and 3nm GAA processes from TSMC and Samsung in them. To make it possible, Qualcomm has joined forces with Samsung.

Informatively, it is expected if this plane gets into the process in the upcoming year 2024, it will be possible for a regular TSMC’s N3E process-based Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor will be launched. Besides it, a Galaxy dedicated chip can also be expected, which will be built with Samsung’s 3nm process technology. This Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for Galaxy will power Samsung’s future Galaxy S25 flagship members in the future.

Besides, this year only Apple has used TSMC’s 3nm process, and it seems that Qualcomm and MediaTek haven’t placed orders due to the high wafer price. Similarly, TSMC’s N3E process won’t be cheap. Hence, using Samsung’s 3nm GAA node will be the best option for Qualcomm. However, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will be mass-produced on TSMC’s N4P process, and Samsung’s 3nm GAA technology will come into adoption by the next year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor.
