First Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 powered flagship phone may launch in October

Well-known tipster DigitalChatStation has claimed that the leaked benchmarks of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 are actually based on low-frequency engineering samples.

As we know, chipsets are often run at low speeds to check stability in the early stages of development. This suggests that the final product may actually be more powerful than the leaked benchmarks.

According to DigitalChatStation, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset is likely to have a “2+6” core architecture.

This means that it will have two high-performance cores and six power-efficient cores. This configuration will help strike a balance between better performance and battery life.

Possible Specifications of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4

Although the specifications of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 have not been officially confirmed yet, we can make some guesses based on leaks and rumors.

Fabrication Process: This chipset is believed to be based on TSMC’s 3nm process technology. It will offer better performance and power efficiency than the previous generation 4nm processor.

CPU Cores: As we mentioned, it is likely to have 2 high-performance Kryo cores and 6 power-efficient cores. The high-performance cores will be great for gaming and demanding apps, while the power-efficient cores will help save battery while handling everyday tasks.

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit): According to rumors, Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will have a new and improved Adreno GPU, which will provide better graphics performance and gaming experience.

AI Capabilities: Qualcomm focuses on improving artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities with each new generation of its chipsets. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is also expected to have an improved AI engine, which will improve camera, photography, voice assistant and other AI-based features.

Which smartphone can bring Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 first?

If we talk about the leaks, it is believed that the Xiaomi 15 series smartphone will be the first smartphone in the world to be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset.

Xiaomi is often one of the first smartphone makers to use Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor, and the same is expected to be the case this time as well.

However, it is important to note that these are still just rumors. We will not know which smartphone will come first with Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset until it is officially launched.


The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 promises the next generation of smartphone processors. With improved performance, power efficiency, graphics, AI capabilities and 5G connectivity, this chipset will definitely be of interest to those who want the best experience from their smartphone.
