Chip manufacturing giant Qualcomm is gearing up to launch the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 at an event scheduled for October, and a new report confirms a higher pricing level for upcoming phones featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor.

With the anticipated new leap in performance from Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip, the next generation of flagship smartphones is also witnessing a jump in pricing.

During the events of the MWC 2024 conference, Qualcomm affirmed its plans to host an event in October to unveil a new generation of flagship processors. Smartphone manufacturers are expected to announce the new generation of phones featuring the processor after Qualcomm’s event concludes.

Several leaks have indicated that Xiaomi will be among the first developers of phones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor. The Chinese giant is set to introduce the Xiaomi 15 series with the new Qualcomm processor.

A report from “Digital Chat Station” clarified that the next generation of flagship smartphones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor will not launch with a starting price of $500 as seen in previous versions. The Xiaomi 15 series is expected to come with a higher price tag this year.

These details align with earlier statements from Chris Patrick, Vice President of Qualcomm, who suggested that devices with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will come at a higher price compared to previous versions. This is due to the manufacturing challenges with the N3E node used in developing this version, utilizing the TSMC manufacturing process, prompting smartphone manufacturers to increase pricing as well.
