The (*2*)Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor went official final week, however Samsung was mysteriously lacking from Qualcomm’s official companions’ checklist. It was later reported that the South Korean agency may use a particular model of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 with a higher-clocked CPU. Now, it appears like the corporate’s upcoming high-end telephones will use a higher-clocked GPU, too.

However to tame this overclocked chipset, Samsung additionally wants to use an acceptable cooling mechanism.
(*8*)Qualcomm sometimes releases higher-clocked variations of its flagship smartphone chipsets with a mannequin quantity ending AC. For example, the Snapdragon 855 had the mannequin quantity SM8150, whereas the Snapdragon 855+ with a higher-clocked CPU had the mannequin quantity SM8150-AC.
