According to the embedded tweet below, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is codenamed either Lanai or Pineapple. The chip will feature a 2+3+2+1 layout, which is different from the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s 1+4+3 configuration. The tweet also mentioned that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will upgrade the GPU to Adreno 750, with a maximum frequency of 770 MHz. These new chips will only feature 64-bit support, dropping 32-bit entirely. It also supports Linux kernel 6.1 and Android 14.
The company announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset in November last year, but the Gen 3 chipset could be announced earlier this year.
Back to the cores, Arm codename Hayes and Hunter (ELP) are brand new, unannounced CPU cores replacing the whole current line-up.
They drop support for 32-bit completely, meaning that 8 Gen 3 will be 64-bit-only. This is also confirmed by Qualcomm's code. https://t.co/VSHvbFiKMD pic.twitter.com/Hgcb8YHOv1
