  • A new benchmark leak reveals the core configuration of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
  • It is codenamed “pineapple,” and is tipped to be seen in the upcoming RedMagic 9.
  • It reveals 1+5+2 Arm cores config and is likely a “regular” Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset.

The Snapdragon Summit is merely two months away, where we expect to see the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The chipset will apparently launch earlier than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 did last year. Ahead of the release, a newly leaked benchmark listing shows us what we can expect from the next flagship SoC that is set to power upcoming flagship Android phones.

The alleged benchmark listing comes from reliable tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo (via Android Authority). The tipster shares the Geekbench 5 score of the RedMagic 9 (bearing model number Nubix NX769J), which scored a multi-score of 5977 and a single-score of 1596.

The listing further reveals the motherboard’s “pineapple” moniker, rumored to be the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The device appears to be running Android 14 during the benchmark and could be one of the few flagship phones running the successor of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 before the year ends.
