Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit is set to launch next flagship chipset

Going up against Google Tensor.

What you need to know

  • Qualcomm Tech Summit has been scheduled for November 30 in Hawaii.
  • The chip manufacturer is set to launch the next-generation flagship Snapdragon chipset.
  • Xiaomi is expected to be the first to launch a phone with the new chip.

The dates for the Qualcomm Tech Summit were revealed on Monday, where the company is expected to unveil the successor to the Snapdragon 888 platform.

The event will take place from November 30 to December 1 in Hawaii, where the summit is usually held.

Qualcomm teases that it will "debut the latest Snapdragon premium tier mobile platform," which is likely to be the Snapdragon 898 (or 895 as some rumors have called it). This chip is expected to power the best Android phones in 2022 and will go head-to-head with Samsung's next-gen Exynos chip and Google Tensor.

"Snapdragon remains at the center of delivering premium mobile experiences," says president and CEO Christiano Amon in a statement. The company will also discuss innovations in AI, gaming, 5G, and more. The company has playfully teased Google in the past for moving away from Snapdragon in the latest Pixel 6.

Qualcomm says companies including Lenovo, Microsoft, Motorola, and Xiaomi will be in attendance. At the same time rumors suggest that Xiaomi might be the first to launch a phone with the new chipset before the end of the year.

Meanwhile, Motorola is also rumored to launch a phone with the new chip.

Qualcomm chips continue to sell well despite the ongoing semiconductor shortage, and the company expects the trend to continue in the following quarters. This might be especially true if Samsung decides to power the Galaxy S22 lineup exclusively with Snapdragon chipsets as rumors suggest.

This would be in contrast to talk of Samsung selling more phones with its own Exynos chipsets, although that could refer only to lower-end devices.

Qualcomm is also expected to unveil details about its product vision and strategy at its November 16 Investor Day event.

The Tech Summit will be livestreamed on November 30 and December 1 at 3 p.m. PST/6 p.m. EST via Qualcomm's website, Twitter account, and YouTube page.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s
