Samsung Galaxy S24 Could Outpace iPhone 15 with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Processor
Samsung’s Galaxy S23 line is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is also used in many of the best Android phones in 2023. However, Apple’s A16 Bionic chipset remains the fastest on the planet, denying Samsung the privilege of calling its smartphones the fastest. But that could change in 2024 with the release of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, which is expected to be significantly more powerful than its predecessor. According to serial leaker RGcloudS, the Galaxy-specific version of the chipset is set to beat Apple’s upcoming A17 Bionic “on paper.”
This means that the Samsung Galaxy S24 and its larger siblings, which are expected to launch early next year, could be faster than the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and the much-rumored iPhone 15 Ultra. While the speed gains may be negligible, this leak bodes well for the performance credentials of future Android devices.
In conclusion, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 line could potentially outpace Apple’s iPhone 15 with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. This development is exciting news for Android users who are looking for faster and more powerful devices. Stay tuned for more updates on the Samsung Galaxy S24 and its performance capabilities.Snapdragon Gen 3: The Future of Mobile Processing Power
The latest leaks suggest that the Snapdragon Gen 3 is set to be a game-changer in the world of mobile processing power. According to RGcloudS, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will feature a high-performance Cortex-X4 core clocked at an impressive 3.7GHz, along with four low-frequency performance cores and three efficiency-focused cores. This represents a significant increase in power over the previous generation, with the standard Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 boasting a 3.2GHz clock speed.
While the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra all currently pack a bespoke version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the rumored 3.7GHz clock speed of the Snapdragon Gen 3 would mark a sizable increase over that chipset’s slightly higher 3.36GHz clock speed.
The main contributor to this impressive leap in processing power is said to be ARM itself, particularly the X4 and 1,4,3 configuration. While it remains to be seen how the Snapdragon Gen 3 will perform in real-world tests, on paper, it looks set to beat the Bionic 17 frequency.
At Tech Leaks, we’re excited to see what the future holds for mobile processing power, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest leaks, guides, and walkthroughs regarding Apple, Android, Microsoft, Google, Blogging, SEO, and Freelancing. Stay tuned for more updates!Samsung’s Galaxy S23 to Use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Chipset
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 phones will reportedly use a bespoke version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. While it’s not entirely clear whether the figures quoted by RGcloudS refer to the standard version of Qualcomm’s next flagship chipset or the Galaxy-specific version, their mention of “Gen 3 for Galaxy” suggests that we will indeed be seeing two variants of Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, as in 2023 with the 8 Gen 2.
We can expect the base Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset to find its way into future Xiaomi, Honor, and OnePlus flagships, but the performance differences between these devices and Samsung’s next Galaxy S phones are likely to be negligible. Samsung is also expected to offer Qualcomm chipsets across the board with the Samsung Galaxy S24 line. In years prior to the release of the S23 range, the company used either Snapdragon or Samsung Exynos processors in its flagship phones, depending on the regions in which customers were buying them.
The lack of processor discrepancy between regions is a key part of the reason why Samsung’s latest phones are highly rated. Therefore, it would be foolish of the company to undo all that good work with its next line of Galaxy S series devices.
