Qualcomm is no stranger when it comes to releasing high performance chips for the midrange market. Recently, we’ve seen the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 used in the segment, mostly from Chinese phonemakers. It is safe to expect that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be the next in line to fill that position, as we’ve seen already with the Redmi K70, rumored to be a POCO device, and the realme GT5. 

A new report from South Korea claims that there are two new high performance Qualcomm chips for mobile. Two part numbers were given SM7675 and SM8635. 

The former, SM7675, is suspected to be codenamed “Palawan”, inspired from an island from Region 4B in the Philippines. The report continues that the chip will be manufactured at a 4nm process technology. 

On the other hand, SM8635 appeared alongside but not much other information has been revealed regarding the chip. 

Though these two new processors are scarce when it comes to their specifications, an interesting speculation can be deduced with these following SoCs in tune with Qualcomm’s recent releases. 

Take note of the recent Snapdragon 7S Gen 2 and 7+ Gen 2. Both of the chips have part numbers SM7435 and SM7475 respectively. The first digit represent its tier with SM7XXX being Snapdragon 7 and SM8XXX as Snapdragon 8. Third and fourth digits work in unison as they may relate to the chip’s  architecture itself. 

SM7X75 relates to high performance Snapdragon 7 chip, known as Snapdragon 7+ with the 7+ Gen 2 having a part number of SM7475. While SM7X35 being a lower tier chip in the Snapdragon 7 series, the 7S Gen 2 a prime example. 

We can speculate that SM7675 is a follow up Snapdragon 7+ chip to the 7+ Gen 2 and SM8635 is a tier below the existing Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (SM8650). 

In summary, Qualcomm is making different tiers to their existing chip lineup within the Snapdragon 7 and 8 series
