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.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones .

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
