A little more than a week separates us from the presentation of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Usually, the press release of the new chip mentions partners who will be the first to offer commercial gadgets on this hardware, but without specific dates. But Digital Chat Station has a little on this topic. So, according to his data, the first batch of flagships is almost ready, and the very first one can be presented as early as a week after the presentation of the chip – around November 22. Two more dates are mentioned – December 2 and 3, but in general, as many as four announcements can be made in the time period “end of November-beginning of December”.
Nothing about personalities yet, but the main contenders for the championship here are Xiaomi (Xiaomi 13), IQOO (IQOO 11) and Vivo (Vivo X90). Until the end of the year, OPPO, Honor and Huawei can also report on new products. The debut of Realme GT 3 and OnePlus 11 seems a little less likely. All newcomers will be available only in China, but the international release is unlikely to happen before the second half of January (Chinese New Year is celebrated on January 22) or even in February-March, after the Samsung Galaxy S23 . However, the Chinese may have completely different plans, but for now they are waiting for November 15 – the starting point for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
