Previous reports indicate that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip (SM8750) with its self-developed prime core will achieve clock speeds up to 4.2GHz, the highest for any Snapdragon chip to date. GeekBench6 scores for the chip are projected to reach 3,000 points in single-core performance (an increase of 35.5%) and 10,000 points in multicore performance (an increase of 33.9%) compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

The chip is expected to utilize TSMC’s 3nm process technology. The Xiaomi 15 and 15 Pro are likely to be the first smartphones to feature this chip, potentially launching in China as early as October, shortly after the chip's debut.
