Qualcomm is expected to unveil its next flagship SoC — the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 — in the coming months.

Now, a notable tipster has suggested that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 could be capable of a peak clock speed of 3.4GHz to 3.5GHz.

According to a post by tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo, Qualcomm might have achieved a clock speed of up to 3.5GHz with its flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The tipster believes that the company could be planning to launch two versions of this chipset, including an ultra-high frequency variant.

The tipster claims that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will offer an increase in GPU performance over Qualcomm's current flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which launched in May. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset has a peak clock speed of up to 3.2GHz.

There is no exact date for the launch of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. However, a previous report suggested that it could be launched sometime between November 14 and 17. This rumour was based on an allegedly leaked Snapdragon Summit event listing. This report further claims that the flagship chipset has a CPU combination of a single Cortex-X3 core, two Cortex-A720 cores, two A710 cores, and three A510 cores.

We can expect more details regarding the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC to surface in the coming months.
