On Weibo, Digital Chat Station said that the rise in clock speed has boosted the upcoming silicon in single as well as multi-core performance.

Geekbench 6 was expected as the benchmark application of choice, with Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 likely to support 3,000 and approximately 10,000 points in single as well as multi-core runs, and according to this the impeccable single and multicore gains wouldn’t truly showcase real-world performance.

Additionally, other details related to Snapdragon 8 Gen 4’s such as power consumption are still veiled.

But, its predecessors supported massive battery capabilities. So, hopefully it wouldn’t disappoint the users with the upcoming snapdragon 8 Gen 4 cores battery-life etc. According to Digital Chat Station it is likely to support a 5,500mAh battery.

However, it is still veiled as to whether Qualcomm will adhere to these frequencies possessing a commercial alternative of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 or not.
