Xiaomi 15 may be the first to receive the next Snapdragon 8 Gen 4

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 was announced at the Snapdragon Summit on October 25, 2023. The next day, Xiaomi announced its flagship Xiaomi 14 series of smartphones in its home country, and it became available a couple of days later. Now, the latest news from informant Yogesh Brar claims that Xiaomi will once again offer Qualcomm’s next-generation flagship chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, before anyone else.

The informant notes that Xiaomi still has exclusive rights to the first launch of the flagship Snapdragon chip. It is followed by OnePlus and iQOO. This means that the Xiaomi 15 series could be the first to offer the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip. The next two phones, according to the information, should be OnePlus 13 and iQOO 13, respectively.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 may be a little different

However, if you live in the US, you’ll still have to wait until January or February to experience the next Galaxy flagship powered by Oryon’s Snapdragon processor. They may also continue to add some clock speed and branding changes “for Galaxy” as they have in the last two years.

Speaking about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, Qualcomm COO Don McGuire confirmed that the chipset will also be unveiled in October at the Snapdragon Summit 2024 conference. Another key information he shared about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is the use of the Oryon processor core, which is custom-made by Qualcomm.

While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is already powerful enough to handle virtually any task you throw at it, the 8 Gen 4 will be the first processor to boast Qualcomm’s new custom-designed core. The Oryon processor cores in the Snapdragon X Elite reportedly outperform most desktop processors in both processing power and energy efficiency. However, this is Windows-on-Arm, a completely different platform, and the comparison is also made with desktop processors. Let’s see how it performs on next-generation Android flagships.
