Qualcomm redefining it's upcoming processor nomenclature

Qualcomm firm restructuring its future chips to improvise from old 3-digit number system used to bring up the variance between products how it considers the way that brings the change in the branding of Snapdragon.

The Qualcomm technical Summit which going to happen on November 30. At the summit, they are going to discuss majorly on the developmental changes on the next Gen flagships.

Snapdragon will be stood as a new brand separated from Qualcomm. The 5g chips are generally with the 5g tag. The processor Snapdragon 765g has 5g which supports 5g features.

Snapdragon processor users are increasing exponentially in such a way that , the company have expanded its firm from limited nomenclature to the leading pattern followed in this world. It became hard to differentiate between mid range chips like Snapdragon 765 processor to max range chips like Snapdragon 870. The company omitting Snapdragon 888 plus the badge from Qualcomm, firm starting this move early this year.

The color code combination is previously used for the determination of these semiconductor chips. For better understanding lets see gold color used to Premier which is succeeded Snapdragon 888 processor. The midnight and gunmetal is used for low price processors.

The most significant shift, though, may be in the way Qualcomm labels its semiconductors. For years, Qualcomm has given their CPUs 3-digit names like Snapdragon 480, Snapdragon 765, and Snapdragon 888. The first number denoted the chip's power – the 8-series was the most powerful, while the 4-series were the entry-level models. The second number denoted annual generational updates, while the third denoted minor changes.

Qualcomm has stated that starting with the next 8-series flagship, it will switch to single-digit series and generation number. Snapdragon PC CPUs are labelled using a generational naming scheme, such as the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2.
