Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will launch this October


The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset launched last October. If you’re curious about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 and when it will launch, Qualcomm has essentially confirmed in a video on X that the Gen 4 will launch this October.

This was revealed by Qualcomm’s CMO Don McGuire who said that the Snapdragon Summit will take place in October. McGuire does explicitly mention the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, but since the company usually uses the event to announce new products, it’s not that surprising.

McGuire also talks about the new Oryon CPU that will probably make its way into the Gen 4. While smartphone hardware has peaked, we are still pretty excited for the Gen 4. The rumors are claiming that it will be built on TSMC’s 3nm process and it will see insane clock speeds.

There was a leaked benchmark in January where it showed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 beating out Apple’s A17 Pro. So that’s promising. Unfortunately, there have been other rumors claiming that the chipset could be more expensive. Unless smartphone makers were to absorb these costs, there’s a chance that 2025 flagship phones could get more expensive.

In any case, October is still quite a long ways to go. Be sure to check back with us later if you’d like to learn more about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 launch!
