Rumors are circulating that Qualcomm will release an optimized version of its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip very soon.

Apparently, it will not only be the Xiaomi 12 Pro that receives this optimized version. The Lenovo Halo can also rely on the new variant of the Qualcomm chip.

New Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with 4nm process technology from TSMC

Qualcomm may be working on a more efficient variant of its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip

Rumors are circulating that Qualcomm will once again honor the tradition of releasing an optimized version of its high-end chip. Apparently, the manufacturer is preparing to release a variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that now uses TSMC’s 4nm process technology.

Remember that the currently available Snapdragon 8 gen 1 uses Samsung’s four-nanometer process. As far as energy efficiency is concerned, the technology of the South Korean company is slightly inferior to that of TSMC, and that is why Qualcomm will now launch a new chip-optimized variant.

And it is that, according to the same sources, two brands are already preparing launches of smartphones equipped with the new version of the latest Qualcomm chip. Namely: Lenovo Halo and Xiaomi 12 Pro gaming.

What we already know about the Lenovo Halo

One of the terminals that can be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with TSMC technology is the Lenovo Halo, a model aimed at the gaming area. According to leaker Evan Blass, the Halo may be equipped with a 6.67-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate.

In the configuration of the rear camera, it will have a primary sensor of 50 megapixels accompanied by a second sensor of 13 megapixels and a third of two megapixels. The terminal will be powered by a robust 5,000 mAh battery with support for 68-watt fast charging.

For now, there is no more information about this terminal, especially since the web world is showing more enthusiasm for the future Lenovo Legion Y90 that “runs the risk” of being the most powerful Android smartphone at the moment.
