Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 appeared on video in AnTuTu

Qualcomm has been keeping a tight lid on the features of its next flagship mobile processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. However, leaks and rumors keep appearing, gradually revealing more and more details about it.

Just today, a leak revealed that the first phones equipped with this SoC could be available as early as October. Now, in the second leak of the day, we have a video that appeared on Bilibili (via @negativeonehero on Twitter) showing a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 engineering sample undergoing benchmarking.

During the AnTuTu benchmark, the SoC managed to score 1,769,083 points. This is even lower than the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.

However, this is most likely due to the fact that it is an engineering sample SOC and it also faces heavy CPU throttling, which is another reason for the lower-than-expected performance.

The biggest takeaway is that the video shows the basic architecture of the processor. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is expected to have a 2+6 core configuration, consisting of two high-performance cores and six efficient cores.

The leaked video confirms this, showing that the chip has two “Phoenix M” cores with a maximum clock speed of 2.4 GHz and “Phoenix L” cores with a clock speed of 1.939 GHz. In addition, we can see the chip’s codename “Sun for Arm x64”.

These clock speeds fall short of the previously rumored 4.2 GHz for performance cores. However, it is likely that these numbers are specific to the engineering sample. It is likely that Qualcomm will adjust these clock speeds in the final version of the chip.

We have to wait for Qualcomm to show the final product and independent reviews to get a clearer picture of the real capabilities of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.
