It is no doubt that anyone in the smartphone industry has heard of the Snapdragon 870. The 870 is an excellent chip that even some of the reviewers and notable influential people in the industry prefer it over than the newer Snapdragon 888 and 8 Gen 1 due to their lackluster efficiency.

The problem with the 870 is that competition is catching up fast. The new MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and 8100 received rave reviews from their first devices. Now a speculation from Weibo surface out.

Digital Chat Station has discussed the state of the premium segment of Qualcomm in a Weibo post. With the Snapdragon 888 and 7 Gen 1 having poor reputation. The tipster speculated that the newly released Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 will position as the Snapdragon 870 replacement for next year.

Of course, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is relatively new and is currently on flagship devices right now. Though if history is any indication, Qualcomm loves to bring down their Snapdragon 8 chips to the premium midrange segment like what the Snapdragon 870 is known for.
