Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Wins 2024 MWC GTI Breakthrough Award for Mobile Technology Innovation

During the Mobile World Congress 2024 (MWC), the GTI International Industry Conference with the theme of "Monetizing 5GAI" was held in Barcelona, Spain. During the same period, the winners of GTI Awards 2024 were officially announced, and Qualcomm Technologies' latest flagship mobile platform, the third-generation Snapdragon 8, was honored with the GTI Awards Breakthrough Award for Mobile Technology Innovation. As Qualcomm Technologies' first mobile platform crafted specifically for generative AI, the platform delivers top performance and extraordinary experiences to consumers with industry-leading AI, top imaging features, console-grade gaming experiences, professional-quality audio, and the world's fastest connectivity.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 mobile platform, launched in October 2023, is a powerful combination of device-side intelligence, top-tier performance and energy efficiency. It utilizes a 4nm process and is powered by a Qualcomm Kryo CPU clocked at up to 3.3GHz, which provides a 30% performance increase and a 20% energy efficiency increase compared to the previous-generation platform, and a Qualcomm Adreno GPU that provides up to a 25% increase in both performance and energy efficiency. In addition, terminal-side AI is a technology area that Qualcomm has been continuously cultivating for more than a decade, and the third-generation Snapdragon 8 injects high-performance AI into the entire platform system, and is bringing a transformative and generative AI experience to a new generation of flagship smartphones.

Specifically, the new Qualcomm AI engine equipped in the third-generation Snapdragon 8 achieves significant enhancements by adopting an enhanced architecture to improve energy efficiency and increasing Hexagon NPU performance by 98 percent and energy efficiency by 40 percent for generative AI applications, and is capable of supporting complex large language models, large visual models, and generative AI applications, for example, supporting the terminal side of the platform to run up to 10 billion parameters of generative AI models, running large language models with 7 billion parameters at a rate of 20 tokens per second, and supporting Fast Stable Diffusion to generate images in 0.6 seconds. The breakthrough AI experiences and features make the third-generation Snapdragon 8 the platform of choice for generative AI. During MWC Barcelona, Qualcomm Technologies demonstrated a series of commercially available flagship AI smartphones powered by the third-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform, supporting outstanding generative AI features such as AI-enabled photo expansion and photo magic erase (Xiaomi 14 Pro), smart filming and smart creation schedules (Honor Magic6 Pro), and image AI elimination (OPPO Find X7 Ultra). In addition, the company brought demonstrations of its latest generative AI technologies for the third-generation Snapdragon 8, including the world's first multimodal language model running on an Android phone, and Qualcomm's first LoRA model running on an Android phone.

In addition, the leading AI capabilities of the 3rd generation Snapdragon 8 empower a comprehensive breakthrough in the smartphone experience, delivering an imaging experience beyond imagination with innovative features such as support for photo expansion, background creation, video object erasure, and Night Vision night video capture. In terms of gaming experience, the third-generation Snapdragon 8 introduces more end-game-level gaming features into smartphones, allowing players to reap the benefits of a more immersive gaming experience in a gaming world that supports global illumination, and 240FPS gaming, allowing users to enjoy the ultimate lag-free gaming experience. All of the above experiences are supported by the world's fastest connectivity from Qualcomm, with the Snapdragon X75 5G modem and RF system powered by the third-generation Snapdragon 8 supporting industry-leading 5G experiences and hardware AI acceleration capabilities.

With powerful terminal-side AI and top comprehensive experience, the third-generation Snapdragon 8 has gained widespread praise from the industry and strong market performance, and more than ten flagship smartphones equipped with the third-generation Snapdragon 8 have been released.During MWC Barcelona, Honor and Xiaomi also held a conference in Barcelona to launch flagship new products equipped with the third-generation Snapdragon 8 for the global market, including the Honor Magic6 series and the Xiaomi 14 series.
