Even if the final version of Android 13 is almost ready to be released, the engineers working for Google never stop working. It is reasonable to presume that a road map and preparations have already been established for the following major release of Android 14.
Even if we are aware of the features that will be supported by Android 13 and those that will not be supported, we are still able to compile a list of features that we would want to see included in the most upcoming version of Android, which will be released in 2023.
It is now confirmed that all information pertaining to Qualcomm’s next flagship chipset, which will be used in Android flagship devices for the new year, is out.

You can anticipate new features with image analysis, which will additionally depend exclusively on advanced AI. Its official name is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and it succeeds the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
Dual SIM capability for 5G networks is another significant advance that will be included in incoming smartphones of the 8 Gen 2 generation.
An even more enjoyable gaming experience is in store for you. This is the first chipset that Qualcomm has released that supports ray tracing, and the processor also features an updated Adreno graphics processing unit (GPU), which Qualcomm says would improve gaming performance by up to 25%.
Wi-Fi 7 standards are included in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s feature set as well. Wi-Fi 7 is capable of operating in the 6GHz frequency range, has a channel bandwidth of 320MHz, which results in a broader channel, and enables speeds of up to 40Gbps and even higher.
Improvements to the camera are something that we nearly always get to experience with the release of a brand-new flagship handset. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor has a Cognitive ISP, which improves both still images and moving images in a continuous, real-time manner.
You are in for a treat in 2023 when it comes to your Bluetooth connection since the new technology will make it possible for smartphones to have improved and dual Bluetooth connectivity.
In terms of enhanced audio, we anticipate that original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will make use of this and eventually offer support in their devices and TWS earbuds through Samsung’s S5 Gen 2 and S3 Gen 2 audio platforms.
This is something that we are looking forward to.
