Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC is more powerful but eats much more battery: Report

Published

on


Since its October launch, more flagship smartphones are starting to include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip. With the SoC already in the hands of several reviewers, the Xiaomi 14 was the first lineup to include it. Thus, a thorough assessment of the flagship Android chipset is underway. Every year, Qualcomm, MediaTek, and other companies update their CPUs, and their general philosophy is always more and better, but with technology comes limits, so it’s not always feasible to make every improvement.

We will have more power, certainly, but less efficiency with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 based on expert benchmarks by @Golden_Reviewer. Compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Qualcomm’s most recent flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, is 13% quicker and consumes 28% more energy, according to benchmarks. That is to say, compared to its predecessor, its energy efficiency is 11% poorer.

What does the benchmark say about the new processor?

This is a tempting notion, but we don’t want our processors to be so powerful that they deplete our battery or become hand warmers, except in really cold weather. Qualcomm appears to have chosen to prioritize performance over efficiency in a challenging trade-off between the two. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Cortex-X4 benchmarks from Golden Reviewer, at least, seem to indicate this. Using its triple cluster design, a Cortex-X4 core operating at 3.3 GHz, five Cortex-A720 out of which three operate at 3.2 GHz and two at 3 GHz, and two Cortex-A520 operating at 2.3 GHz, Qualcomm guaranteed 30% more performance with 20% less energy usage at the new processor’s debut.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Could Bring Faster GPU to Galaxy S24 Ultra

The crucial information, however, is in the area of energy usage, where the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Cortex-X4 uses 28% more energy than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2+ Cortex-X3. There is a 75% increase in consumption as compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. In comparison to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2+, this results in a 11% decrease in energy deficiency and a 31% decrease from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in comparison. Further, Golden Reviewer interrupts all of this by requiring manufacturers to exercise extra caution when modifying the CPU to maximize the utilization of the intermediate cores and avoid letting the Cortex-X4 run at maximum power in order to prevent overheating or excessive battery consumption.

Its primary core, the Cortex-X4, has outperformed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2+ by about 13%, the Dimensity 9200 by 22%, the Google Tensor G3 by 43%, and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 by around 22%, as per the benchmarks.

For Samsung’s foldable enthusiasts, especially those who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6, here’s a small glimpse for you. 

Leaks and rumors always spoil the surprises regarding upcoming Galaxy devices that Samsung hides for its big events, such as Galaxy Unpacked. The same case has happened for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 unit since rumors unveiled a small glimpse of what looks like a real Galaxy Z Fold 6. A leaked image showcases the actual look of the device. 

However, in the image, only the top of the smartphone is visible, so there’s not enough to guess more here, but something is better than nothing, as this image confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s design will be flatter and also have sharper edges and corners as compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It seems that the phone has a wider cover screen. That could just be a result of the angle at which the photo was taken, but there have been tons of indicators that Samsung is putting a certain extent of a of a larger cover display on the next Fold, and now the image appears to confirm that.

The Korean giant is also rumored to be working on a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim that will have a fair measurement of larger displays on the inside and outside while also having a thinner profile. This variant is expected to arrive by the end of this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are on their way to make their debuts at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on July 10.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

A tipster on X shared an image that showcases the rear cameras of the Galaxy Z Fold 6, which is immediately apparent that this is different from any rear camera housing we have ever seen on the Galaxy Z Fold family before. This hints that this time Samsung could introduce a fresh design for the foldable’s rear camera this year. 

The image has a Samsung Galaxy AI watermark which points out that it might be made changes, however, it’s best to wait for more confirmation before trusting this particular design detail since the brand has yet to reveal any official details.
