The Galaxy Z Flip 4 already appears on a benchmark with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+

While the Galaxy Z Flip 4 isn’t expected to launch before this summer, Samsung’s next foldable smartphone has already appeared in the Geekbench 5 benchmark, which confirms the processor that will power the device.

Just a few days after the design was revealed by OnLeaks with beautiful renderings, we now know more about the technical data sheet of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. On Twitter, Ice Universe shared the leaker the first benchmark of Samsung’s next foldable smartphone and it is equipped with a Qualcomm chip yet to be unveiled† Indeed, the benchmark confirms that the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be powered by a new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chip, as previous leaks had claimed. This high-end chip is no longer produced by Samsung, but by TSMC. This allows the Galaxy Z Flip 4 to be more powerful than the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is sold more expensively, thanks to increased frequencies.

What do we know about Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+?

According to the benchmark, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 managed to score 1277 points on one core and 3642 points on multiple cores. This makes it one of the most powerful Android smartphones on the market. Geekbench reveals that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will still use an 8-core configuration, this time with one Cortex-X2 at 3.19 GHz, three Cortex-A710 at 2.75 GHz, and four Cortex-A510 at 1.8 GHz The frequencies have therefore been significantly increased compared to the current Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which rises to 3.0 GHz, 2.5 GHz, and 1.8 GHz respectively.

According to leaker Digital Chat Station on Weibo, Qualcomm will officially announce a 10% increase in frequencies, but also: 30% lower energy consumption and 30% higher energy efficiency With Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+, Android smartphone makers hope to deliver smartphones that overheat less. We know that this chip will also arrive in the next Galaxy Z Fold 4, but also from other manufacturers. In particular, it is expected that both the OnePlus 10 Ultra and the Xiaomi 12 Ultra that will also be presented this summer are equipped with it.
