At its annual Snapdragon Summit yesterday, Qualcomm unveiled its latest mobile chipset. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 boasts a wealth of upgrades, but the introduction of on-device generative AI is probably the most noteworthy, being similar to the technology used by Google on its Tensor G3.

Qualcomm claims the new chipset’s AI Engine to be the world’s fastest Stable Diffusion system, able to generate images in less than a second.

Compared with the previous model, Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3’s CPU offers 30% better performance while being 20% more efficient. In terms of graphics processing, users will benefit from a 25% performance boost while enjoying 25% greater efficiency.

When it comes to camera and editing technology, the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will support the ability to remove people and objects from photos, just like Google’s “Magic Eraser” tool. Voice-activated editing will also be available using Qualcomm’s Cognitive ISP.

Elsewhere, gaming upgrades include support for Unreal Engine 5.2 plus hardware-accelerated ray-tracing, which the company says is a mobile chipset first that will deliver “lifelike, multi-source lighting” in games.

Outside of AI smarts and upgraded gaming ability, the new Snapdragon chipset also uses the X75 Modem-RF System to deliver improved 5G speeds, better coverage, and location accuracy. Wi-Fi 7 connectivity will also be supported.

Android users won’t have to wait long to try the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Qualcomm says new devices featuring the chipset should appear over the coming weeks. Among the manufacturers that will use it are ASUS, Sony, OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, Honor, and ZTE.
