Qualcomm was rumoured to release its new 4nm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ flagship processor in May, enabling phones powered by it by June, but today, we are hearing that these plans have been pushed back, and the chip will instead arrive in the second half of 2012.

The reason for the delay is the current Covid situation in China, according to leakster Digital Chat Station, who has a solid track record.

As you might have heard, the Chinese city of Zhengzhou has gone into lockdown following China’s “zero-covid” policy. Zhengzhou is also commonly known as iPhone City because of the giant Foxconn factory that produces most of the iPhones globally.

And now, these lockdowns seem to affect not only iPhone production but also Qualcomm’s newest chip.

It is also claimed that Qualcomm and Lenovo have a great relationship, and that the Lenovo-made Motorola Edge 30 Ultra could well be the first phone to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chip. Not surprising, considering that the Motorola Edge 30 Pro was the first to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip earlier.

Moreover, Qualcomm hasn’t officially adopted the name “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+” as it’s merely a suggestion. Still, expectations for this new processor is indeed of a “plus” power: expect to see faster GPU performance while CPU speeds remain the same.
