Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4’s chipset could be unveiled this week


Last updated: May 16th, 2022 at 13:13 UTC+02:00

A few months ago, it was revealed that Qualcomm has designed a better version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that’s made using TSMC’s 4nm process. Another report claimed that the chipset would be announced in May 2022, which appears to be the case.

Qualcomm has now confirmed a new launch event in China. It will be held on May 20, 2022. It is being reported that the company will unveil two new processors: Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. The former is rumored to be a premium mid-range chipset, while the latter is said to be the company’s most powerful smartphone chipset ever.

Samsung’s upcoming foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Z Fold 4, will reportedly feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. They could be more power-efficient and stable than Galaxy S22 series devices using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ is reportedly made using TSMC’s 4nm fabrication process, making it more power-efficient than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that’s fabricated using Samsung Foundry’s 4nm process. The upcoming chip is said to feature a Cortex-X2 CPU core clocked at 2.99GHz, three Cortex-A710 CPU cores, four Cortex-A510 CPU cores, and Adreno 730 GPU.

The Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 could feature Cortex-A710 CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz, Cortex-A510 CPU cores clocked at 1.8GHz, and the Adreno 662 chipset. If this information is correct, it could be more powerful than the Snapdragon 888 and could be perfect for phones like the Galaxy S22 FE and the Galaxy A74.
