This year’s flagship smartphones are mostly going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Next year, we expect them to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, and that will definitely be a chipset to look forward to, especially if the leaked benchmarks are any indication of its performance.

According to Geekbench 6 benchmarks, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be an absolute beast of a chipset. It scores 2,845 on single-core and 10,628 on multi-core. For context, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 scored 7,249 on multi-core, and Apple’s 3nm A17 Pro scored 7,281. This means that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is going to be much more powerful.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt since it’s hard to tell if this is the real deal. Also, Apple’s A18 chipset this year could possibly beat the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4’s scores or come close. But for now, on paper at least, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is going to be a monster and that’s something to look forward to.

It was previously reported that someone got their hands on an engineering sample of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. This device managed to run Genshin Impact for up to 45 minutes at 1080p while maintaining 60 fps. If that is true, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could be great for sustained periods of gaming. It’s too early to get excited for the chipset, but it will be interesting to see how the competition fares.
