Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 benchmark result leaked, Androids getting powerful as iPhones?

Before a new chipset is released, we usually see the benchmark results from a Chinese phone, but this time it is different for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU from Qualcomm has not yet been released, but the Geekbench score of the upcoming Galaxy S23 has been leaked.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 features one core running at 3.36 GHz, four cores running at 2.80 GHz, and two cores running at 2.02 GHz, according to the Geekbench result. We aren’t sure yet but “Kalama” refers to Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship chip.

The new chipset also features an updated GPU. Adreno 730 is present in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 while the Adreno 740 is present in the new processor. Abhishek Yadav, a well-known tech blogger, claimed on Twitter that the Galaxy S23 will have 8 GB of RAM and Android 13 preinstalled.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 appears to make a significant difference as seen on the result. Chinese manufacturers can produce performance ffocused phones whereas Samsung typically releases compact phones. Galaxy S series feature remarkably thin and compact body.

There isn’t much information available on the Xiaomi 13 series, although Xiaomi may release their next phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the future. Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is used in the Xiaomi 12 series, and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is used in the Xiaomi 12S series.
