In recent years Galaxy Z Fold 3 came with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, although the upgraded version, the 888 Plus, was available at the time. The Fold 4, on the other hand, is almost guaranteed to feature the recently announced Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 instead of the relatively older stock Gen 1 chip. It has now been spotted on the benchmark website Geekbench.
The Snapdragon 888 Plus wasn’t that much of an improvement over the Snapdragon 888, so users didn’t really miss much. The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 is a more significant upgrade, especially as it will be manufactured on TSMC’s 4nm process, which is said to be better than Samsung’s 4nm technology used for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.4. an improved version of the 5nm node on which the Snapdragon 888 was based.
