Chip giant Qualcomm is gearing up to unveil its all-new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset at the end of October. However, preliminary tests by handset manufacturers suggest impressive performance. A prototype equipped with the chipset was recently submitted to Geekbench, revealing a remarkable multicore score of 5,977, outperforming the current second-generation Snapdragon chipset by 20%.
The mystery smartphone:
The phone with the model number NX769J is presumed to be the ZTE Nubia Red Magic 9, which is expected to be equipped with 12GB of RAM and will come with Android 14 pre-installed.
