While all those features seem regular, it is the choice of chipset that is interesting to see. The Reno 8 could debut the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset, which is yet to be announced. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will get four Cortex-A710 cores and four Cortex-A150 cores, which should promise strong midrange performance. This will carry the Adreno 662 GPU for graphics duties. This chipset will be accompanied by a LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.

Another choice of chipset is said to be the MediaTek chipsets, although the exact name is still unknown. Rumours suggest that Dimensity 8000 series chips could make it to the Reno 8 models, offering the same levels of performance as the Snapdragon 888.
