Update (11/22/21) – MR
After rumors about one of the leakers last weekQualcomm has announced major changes to the way it will name its Snapdragon series platform models, moving away from the 3-digit number sequence system that has named its products for years. This news comes about the debut of its next-generation platform at the Tech Summit event on November 30th.
The Snapdragon brand will exist as a standalone brand, breaking off from the “Qualcomm” brand and even removing the company’s name from its platforms, something seen on the Snapdragon 888 Plus, which already hinted at Qualcomm’s intentions.
The most significant change will be in the way the company will manage the name of its products. Over the years, Qualcomm has organized its platforms with three digital numbers, such as Snapdragon 800, Snapdragon 805, and Snapdragon 888. Number one informs consumers about the power of the platform, for example, the platforms in the chain starting with 8 as the best company ever, in Whereas the series starting at 4 is less powerful, and geared toward more affordable products.
The second number refers to the annual release generation such as the transition from Snapdragon 865 to 875 and the last number indicates small changes such as Snapdragon 765G and Snapdragon 768g. This model name, in addition to being baffling to follow and very technical, made Qualcomm realize that the numbers are also running out to continue naming new models.. The eighth line has already come with the Snapdragon 888, the seventh series is currently on the Snapdragon 780 and the sixth series is at its limit on the Snapdragon 695.
According to Qualcomm, it will transition to a single-digit and generation-digit system, aligned with other product categories and The change will already be applied to the next 8 Series platform. If the previous naming model is kept, it will be called Snapdragon 898. Qualcomm already uses a similar naming scheme for its computer processors, such as the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 and Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2, so the change won’t be anything unusual.
The company hasn’t given many details on what the new naming scheme will look like, but the answer will come at its Tech Summit event next week. The company preferred to publish a mysterious video referring only to the number 8, without further details and leaving speculation up in the air.
In addition, the company has also stated that it will use the gold color in its best products and will stop using 5G in the name of the platforms because it becomes a thing present in the company’s future products, so it is not doing that. It makes sense to put it in the title as a novelty or something unusual.
