Similar to the Galaxy S23, Samsung would use an exclusive Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy SoC for the Galaxy S24 flagships. Meanwhile, the benchmark scores of vanilla 8 Gen 3 reportedly revealed a single-core score of 1,930 and a multi-core score of 6,236, surpassing Apple’s A16 Bionic.
“Alleged 8 Gen 3 chip has 29% increase in single-core performance and 20% in multi-core.”
It’s worth mentioning that the Android devices powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 secured average scores of 1,491 for single-core and 5,164 for multi-core. If the leaked benchmark results are true, it’s going to be a great year for Android smartphones launching with 8 Gen 3.
Besides, Qualcomm’s next Snapdragon processor is rumored to bring a unique 1+5+2 core configuration, dropping one more efficiency core from its predecessor’s 1+4+3 setting. Still, it’s likely that it would be 20% more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, thanks to TSMC’s N4P process node.
Since we are about 10 months away from the tentative launch of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, it’s not fair to blindly believe this rumor. The company may change its plan anytime and make amendments until the finalization of the chipset. Therefore, stay connected for more input.

2024 Samsung Galaxy flagships to beat iPhone 15 in this key area
In the smartphone market, Samsung and Apple are the top priorities that are unquestionably reliable and powerful. With the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Apple’s iPhone 14 faced tough competition, while the 2024 Samsung Galaxy flagships could beat iPhone 15 in one key area.

Apple released the iPhone 14 Pro Max last year, bringing the most powerful smartphone chipset to the market. However, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy swiftly defeated the most premium iPhone with faster GPU performance than the A16 Bionic.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 has 50% faster GPU
This year, Apple will introduce the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which will debut the next-gen A-series processor, based on the 3nm process. Meanwhile, reports say that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 offers a GPU that is 50% faster than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
If the leak is true, the fine-tuned “Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy” will have an even faster GPU than the vanilla variant. As the 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy outperformed A16 Bionic, the S24 Ultra with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy would leave the A17 and iPhone 15 Pro Max in the dust.
Compared to iOS, high-spec gaming is more popular on Android smartphones, as Apple is pushing gaming content lately. This may save the iPhone maker from being criticized for GPU performance over the 2024 flagships powered by Qualcomm’s third-gen Snapdragon chip.
The US chip designer may unveil the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 at the end of this year, while Chinese phone makers will start introducing their production sometime in December. The real iPhone 15 competitor will be the Galaxy S24, which Samsung may reveal by February 2024.
