Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 logo leaks ahead of Qualcomm’s big launch
Just days before the big announcement on November 30, a logo for Qualcomm’s new chip, Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1, was leaked.
According to GSMArena, the leak was spotted at a transit site for the company. The title of the page is “Testing icon” and the icon in question is next to a “Test123” label.
Obviously, this is a template meant to be filled with actual text (that’s the purpose of the staging site), but it hasn’t happened yet.
The name of the new flagship chipset was supposed to be “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1”. Qualcomm has not confirmed the exact name; it was simply referring to “our latest flagship platform in the Snapdragon 8 series”. It is therefore possible that the 8 series chips are in fact named “8Gx”.
Qualcomm already has chips called “8cx”, the flagship offerings for Windows-on-ARM laptops. There is also an 8c, which sits just below the 8cx, and an entry-level 7c. If “c” stands for “computer”, what does “G” mean?
According to GSMArena, according to the current naming scheme, some chipsets are given a “G” suffix to indicate higher clock speeds for the GPU, for example the Snapdragon 765 and 765G. And the “x” just stands for premium.
