It is stated that the letter C symbolizes the term Computer. The letter G represents the faster graphics unit, the x represents the higher level. Based on the 8c Gen 1, 7c Gen 1 names on the laptop, we can see names such as Snapdragon 7Gx, 7G, 7 on mobile.
The Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1 chip will be what we know as the Snapdragon 898. Snapdragon 8Gx Gen 1, which is expected to host Cortex-X2 and the most powerful Adreno graphics unit, will compete with Dimensity 9000 and Exynos 2200 in this area.
