The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has received criticism for poor sustained performance, efficiency, and thermals.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has received criticism for poor sustained performance, efficiency, and thermals.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus will replace the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 by trading in the current chipset's Samsung manufacturing process for TSMC's node. A new leak has now provided insight into how the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus will perform.

Qualcomm is geared to refresh the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with the improved Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus. This new chipset will debut in the coming months, and a new leak has now provided some insight into what to expect.

According to Yogesh Brar, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, internally coded as the SM8475 versus the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1's SM8450, is expected to be commercially available in early June. Prior reports claimed the chipset would debut in May, so there's a chance Qualcomm launches the SoC in May, while the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus-powered phones arrive in June.

As for performance, the leaker reckons a 10% boost across the board versus the vanilla Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. That will likely see it perform on par with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000, a chipset already built on the same TSMC node the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus will feature. More importantly, though, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus is said to be more stable than the SM8450, with better thermals and battery life as well.
