It had been rumored that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Today, some evidence of that claim has surfaced. The benchmark listing for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 on the popular benchmarking website Geekbench reveals that the handset is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
This doesn't really come as a surprise since the same is also rumored for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. A few weeks ago, the Galaxy Z Flip 4's benchmark listing revealed that it would be using this chipset as well.
First Galaxy Z Fold 4 benchmark appears online
The Galaxy Z Fold 4, model number SM-F936U, has appeared on the Geekbench website. This would be the model that's destined for the United States. The benchmark results reveal some interesting information about the performance.
Powering the Galaxy Z Fold 4, this chipset posted a single-core score of 1351 and a multi-core score of 3808. It appears that this model will have 12GB of RAM at the very least. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also available with a similar amount of memory.
That obviously does nothing to give you a sense of the device's real-world performance. Qualcomm claims that this chipset delivers a 10% bump in CPU performance with a 10% faster GPU clock. It also claims that power efficiency is up 30% for the CPU and GPU. That will be impressive and it will enable the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to offer improved battery life even with its smaller battery.
We can expect more leaks about the Galaxy Z Fold 4 to surface as its launch nears. SamMobile has exclusively confirmed already that there's going to be a 1TB Galaxy Z Fold 4 variant. This will be the most amount of internal storage offered on a foldable smartphone yet.
Samsung is due to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 4 alongside the clamshell foldable in a couple of months. August is when it's expected to come out with its new foldables.
