Qualcomm has confirmed plans to launch its next-generation flagship system-on-chip (SoC), the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, at the Snapdragon Summit in October.

Don McGuire, Qualcomm’s chief marketing officer, made the announcement during Mobile World Congress in a post on X/Twitter, noting that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will feature the company’s own Oryon processor. He also hinted that the chip will have improved NPU performance “as an evolution of their NPU history.”

Although the video does not contain many details about the chip, details about the upcoming SoC have already begun to circulate online.

Earlier, a leak showed the performance of an engineering sample of the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip. The chip allegedly ran the game Genshin Impact smoothly for 45 minutes at 1080p resolution, maintaining a frame rate of 60 frames per second.

Since the chip in the test is still under development, the final version may be even better, possibly running Genshin Impact at a maximum of 60 frames per second at a higher resolution.

Moreover, another report says that the Adreno 830 Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 GPU scored 10% higher than Apple’s M2 chip in the 3DMark Wild Life Extreme Stress Test. This is impressive, especially when you consider that the M2 is designed for large devices such as Macs.

Before the fall debut of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, Qualcomm is expected to release an additional chip in the Snapdragon 8 Gen series. This intermediate chip, codenamed SM8635, is rumored to have a powerful Cortex-X4 core and Adreno 735 GPU.

It is expected to fall between Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and Gen 3 in terms of performance. It may be released as Snapdragon 8s Gen 2 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Lite.
