Qualcomm confirms Snapdragon Tech Summit will be held in late October

Qualcomm has recently confirmed that this year’s Snapdragon Tech Summit will be held from October 24th to 26th, maintaining their tradition of choosing Maui, Hawaii as the venue.

In contrast to previous years when the event was held in early December, last year’s event was brought forward to mid-November. This year, the summit has been further adjusted to be held in late October, evidently in relation to MediaTek’s planned unveiling of its flagship processor, the Dimensity 9300, in October of this year. This move is likely designed to enable collaborative smartphone brands to bring their new devices to market more swiftly.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Qualcomm will announce its final processor created using a semi-custom design, such as the Arm Cortex-X4 CPU, known as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Additionally, they may also reveal details of a new CPU, codenamed “Oryon,” which boasts an entirely proprietary architecture design.

On the other hand, if Qualcomm’s initial plan is to employ the “Oryon” CPU in PC products, the focal point of this year’s Snapdragon Tech Summit is expected to be on PC product application design.

As for Meta, which recently announced that the Quest 3 will adopt Snapdragon’s next-generation computing platform, it implies that Qualcomm will also elucidate the specifics of the new Snapdragon XR virtual vision computing platform at this year’s Snapdragon Tech Summit.
