This year's Snapdragon Tech Summit has been scheduled by Qualcomm for November instead of the usual December. The event is expected to unveil the successors of chips like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3. There could also be a first glimpse of the Nuvia cores.

In recent years, the Snapdragon Tech Summit has always taken place in the first week of December. However, on the overview page for upcoming events, Qualcomm lists November 14-17 as the date for this year's edition.
