Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Phones: The Current List (2024)

Qualcomm introduced the 8 Gen 3 chipset at the Snapdragon Summit. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 was very successful, and the phones running this chip have the best battery life on the market. They also have cutting-edge GPUs with remarkable performance. Built on TSMC’s efficient 4nm node, the performance and efficiency are in perfect balance.

Qualcomm is taking this lead further with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip. They’re sticking to the tried and tested TSMC 4nm node, which is the right move. The 3nm node only has a 55% yield rate, has heating issues, and is much more expensive for questionable efficiency and performance gains. Qualcomm is better off sticking with a more reliable 4nm node, which works wonders for striking the right balance between performance and efficiency.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is already powering flagship devices from various manufacturers, including Samsung, iQOO, Xiaomi, OnePlus, and ASUS. More devices are expected to launch in the coming months.

On the graphics front, the Adreno 740 GPU steps up with 25% faster rendering and improved efficiency. It’s also the first chip that works with Unreal Engine 5 Lumen. It can make games run smoother, even doubling the frame rate from 60 to 120 frames per second. And if you have a super fancy phone with a 240Hz screen, it can even handle games running at a crazy 240 frames per second.
