The third-generation Snapdragon 8s mobile platform is officially released, and Lu Weibing announces Xiaomi’s global premiere

Today, Qualcomm held a new product launch conference and launched the third-generation Snapdragon(®) 8s mobile platform, which is also an important iteration of the Snapdragon 8 series.

The third-generation Snapdragon 8s mobile platform brings together a series of innovative features, including powerful on-device generative AI capabilities, all-weather image signal processor (ISP), immersive mobile gaming experience, revolutionary connection technology, and lossless HD audio experience.

This new flagship platform continues to be equipped with Qualcomm Kryo CPU and adopts the same new CPU architecture as the previous generation. It contains one ultra-large core clocked at up to 3.0GHz, four performance cores at 2.8GHz, and three efficiency cores at 2.0GHz.

Compared with competing products, in the GeekBench 6 multi-threaded test, the CPU performance of the third-generation Snapdragon 8s is 20% higher than the same period last year. At the same time, in terms of game performance, tests based on eight popular mobile games show that its energy efficiency is 15% ahead of competing products in game scenarios.

AI is a highlight of the third-generation Snapdragon 8s, which supports running multi-modal generative AI models on the device side, with model parameters up to 10 billion.

At the same time, the distributed processing architecture not only improves the performance of the third-generation Snapdragon 8s, but also significantly reduces power consumption. In the field of generative AI, the platform supports a variety of mainstream AI models, such as Baichuan-7B, Gemini Nano, Llama 2, and large language models such as ChatGLM.

In many key scenarios such as object detection, background blur, image segmentation and language understanding, the third-generation Snapdragon 8s mobile platform has demonstrated excellent performance, significantly surpassing competing products on the market.

In addition, the third-generation Snapdragon 8s platform is equipped with the same three 18-bit cognitive ISPs as the third-generation Snapdragon 8 platform, and performs heterogeneous computing with the Hexagon NPU to achieve numerous intelligent image processing.

For example, the third-generation Snapdragon 8s platform can provide real-time semantic segmentation of photos and videos, making the recognition and segmentation of objects and scenes more accurate and improving the quality of captured content.

The third-generation Snapdragon 8s also introduces Snapdragon low-light shooting technology. Thanks to the efficient blessing of the 18-bit Cognitive Triple ISP and Hexagon NPU, beautiful images can be captured even in low-light night environments.

Performance is standard for top-tier chips. The third-generation Snapdragon 8s not only maintains flagship-level image processing capabilities, but also fully supports Snapdragon elite gaming, bringing hardware-level accelerated real-time ray tracing.

This technology can realistically simulate ambient occlusion and shadow effects while achieving precise reflections and high-fidelity soft shadow rendering on smooth surfaces, greatly enhancing the visual experience of the game.

In a crowded environment, having no signal when making calls is a commonplace topic. But with the support of the Snapdragon Sound technology suite, the third-generation Snapdragon 8s can achieve ultra-clear voice and video calls, as well as lag-free in-game voice chat. It maintains a robust link even in crowded RF environments and supports up to 16-bit 44.1KHz CD-level lossless wireless music streaming.

Thanks to Qualcomm's Aqstic speaker amplification technology, the third-generation Snapdragon 8s platform has significantly improved the audio output quality of mobile phones, effectively reducing distortion during high-volume playback while providing an immersive stereo effect.

The third-generation Snapdragon 8s platform is equipped with the FastConnect 7800 connection system, which supports Wi-Fi 7’s high-frequency multi-connection concurrency technology. The platform can provide an extremely fast Wi-Fi experience supporting HBS while ensuring longer battery life and a wider range of application scenarios.

Chris Patrick, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm's mobile phone business, said: "The third-generation Snapdragon 8s relies on rich features such as on-device generative AI and advanced imaging features to enhance user experience and help users unleash their creativity in daily life. and productivity.

We are excited to expand our Snapdragon 8 Series flagship platform family. As our top mobile platform solution, the Snapdragon 8 series will bring a series of outstanding selected features to more consumers. "

It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi has just officially announced that the Civi 4 Pro mobile phone will be equipped with the third-generation Snapdragon 8s for the first time in the world. According to reports, this is a chip deeply customized by Xiaomi and Qualcomm based on Xiaomi's Thermal OS. The warm-up poster is known as "Image , performance, and AI capabilities have all jumped up."

Regarding this cooperation, Xiaomi brand general manager Lu Weibing said: "This new mobile platform allows us to use generative AI to provide users with top-notch personalized experiences."

Major OEMs and brands such as Honor, iQOO, Realme, Redmi and Xiaomi will adopt the third-generation Snapdragon 8s, and the first terminal is expected to be launched in March.
