This year, OnePlus might introduce a device running on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. No information has been released on the company’s upcoming premium phone launch. We already know that the OnePlus Nord 3 will include a tonne of accessories. The OnePlus Nord Watch is included in this.
Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC last year, and since then, the company has released a “plus” version of the processor. Now that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to be introduced shortly, OnePlus may create a phone to showcase it. The year 2022 has been difficult for OnePlus. The company’s OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10T were hacked on Jerryrig Everything, OxygenOS has essentially turned into Color OS, and public enthusiasm for the business has decreased. Therefore, we are all anticipating the company’s upcoming release. It might help OnePlus emerge from its rut.
However, according to Digital Chat Station (via Android Authority), the company’s next flagship could launch with the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. In a post to Weibo, the tipster made a statement that was, well, rather confusing, but it’s a translation.
So, if you could navigate your way through that, there are a few details that you can glean. First off, the “sm8550” refers to the model number of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. While this is in the post, you should still take it with a hint of salt. Qualcomm is expected to unveil this new chipset sometime in November, and that gives OnePlus a month and a half to spit out a new phone.
[OnePlus’] sm8550 new machine at the end of the year focuses on texture and performance, and has not seen the version of the 1-inch super outsole for the time being. Therefore, the new image combination of the European and Canadian system is the first to go up next year’s new flagship of the green factory.
Next, while it’s really hard to tell, the post may possibly be talking about camera improvements. The “1-inch outsole” may point to the sensor size for the main camera (because it’s definitely not talking about shoes). Also, the “new image combination of the European and Canadian system” could also have something to do with the camera.
The fact is that we’re talking about a phone we don’t know about running a processor we also don’t know about. So, we’re going to need to wait on more information. Since both the phone and processor are set to be revealed before the year is out, there’s not much time to wait for more information.
