The news is coming from our friends over at VideoCardz, which have some sneaky leaked slides on Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon SoCs for 2022 and beyond. The new Snapdragon G3x is teased here, designed specifically for next-gen handheld gaming.

Razer collaborated with Qualcomm on the Snapdragon G3x, with the mobile device teased packing what should be a gorgeous 120Hz HDR OLED display. Inside, there's a large 6000mAh battery feeding the system and display. The device is advertised here as a game streaming product that supports Xbox Game Cloud, streaming from a console or even a PC... very, very nice.

The new Snapdragon G3x Handheld Developer Kit is "The Place to Play All Your Games" and packs all of Qualcomm's latest and greatest gaming technology. We have the new Snapdragon G3x which is a "new platform designed for innovation in handheld gaming", 5G mmWave connectivity, and the gorgeous 120Hz HDR OLED panel.

We also have a USB-C port for XR accessories, support for DisplayPort over USB-C (this is important for your PC), and a huge 6000mAh battery. There's also a 1080p webcam, "incredible ergonomics and haptics", new Snapdragon Sound, and support for Qualcomm FastConnect with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 technologies.

Now, the nitty-gritty of the Snapdragon G3x is the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC that powers it. We have a chip made one the new 4nm process node, with up to 20% more CPU performance and 30% more power efficiency over its predecessor, a new Adreno GPU that is 30% faster than its predecessor, with 25% more power efficiency. There's also Unreal Engine 5 VRS Pro support, and so much more inside of the Snapdragon Elite Gaming umbrella.

Qualcomm has deployed its 7th Gen Qualcomm AI Engine, with 4x faster AI performance while there's Snapdragon Sight -- something that packs some next-gen camera technology all into the SoC.

The camera... yeah, it's powerful. We're talking 240 x 12-megapixel photos in a SINGLE SECOND, with 8K HDR support, 64-megapixel photo support, 18-bit raw, and so, so, so much more.

We should expect a huge information dump the second that Qualcomm's NDA on the Snapdragon Tech Summit kicks off.
