The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could be more powerful than we thought

 According to leaker Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 can run graphics-intensive games like Genshin at 1080p resolution.

The source further claims that a new phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip is scheduled to be released after his National Day in October.

Early rumors suggest that Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 may require up to 6,000 mAh battery due to higher power consumption and resulting larger phones.

 If you follow the Android smartphone industry closely, you know that performance and speed are important, especially when it comes to high-end devices. Almost all major Android flagships except the Google Pixel 8 series are now powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, and Samsung is offering a special "For Galaxy" version of its high-end phones. I am using SoC. We recently learned that Qualcomm plans to announce its next-generation chip, dubbed Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, at the annual Snapdragon Summit in October. We're now getting some early information about this upcoming chipset, specifically its GPU performance.

 According to reliable leaker Digital Chat Station on Weibo (via GSMArena), the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 should be able to run GPU-specific games like Genshin at native 1080p resolution. For those unfamiliar with this game, it requires a lot of GPU power to run smoothly on a mobile phone, especially at 1080p. Meanwhile, a thread on Reddit suggests that Genshin's resolution may be limited to 720p due to Android hardware limitations.

 Although some preliminary benchmark results have recently surfaced, there are still no official details to understand the true potential of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4's GPU. Digital Chat Station also points out that a "wave" of new Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 phones could launch after China's National Day (October 1st), which falls in line with Qualcomm's chip launch schedule. is consistent with Although this source has a strong track record with technology leaks, we recommend taking this fact with a grain of salt as we are still at least 4-5 months away from the official announcement of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.

 Details regarding Qualcomm's next flagship mobile chipset are, as expected, pretty sparse at the moment. However, a report in late April claimed that the Xiaomi 15 series could be the first phone to be launched with Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. However, people in the US may have to wait until the next OnePlus flagship or Samsung Galaxy S25 to try out Qualcomm's next-generation SoC.

 Separately, there are also rumors that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 could consume a lot of power and could require up to a 6,000 mAh battery for all-day use. This can cause devices with new chips to be larger than usual, putting them at risk of overheating when playing GPU-intensive titles.
