Getting closer to getting the new flagship, the first data is already leaking weeks ahead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 event.
A new chipset will arrive in the next few weeks, which we will see in many high-end smartphones. Xiaomi will rely on it in its new 14 series, Samsung is installing Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in its Galaxy S24 Ultra. But what improvements can be expected?
The first data is coming out slowly and it doesn’t look like we can expect a big increase in CPU. The first test results show about 16 percent increase in processor compared to Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
But with the new GPU things are completely different; The new Adreno 750 graphics seems to make a big leap forward. If you believe this preliminary data, the performance in the benchmark is already 40 percent higher.
These are still very early values and key data on the remaining hardware is missing. But it’s becoming clear that with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Qualcomm can once again deliver a chipset that’s absolutely the right choice for smartphone gamers.
The first new smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is likely to come from Xiaomi. The Chinese Android OEM plans to showcase the Xiaomi 14 and 14 Pro right after the Qualcomm event in October. However, Samsung should only install the new chip in the upcoming Ultra models.
