OnePlus 13 chip rumours

As per tipster Smart Pikachu on Weibo, the OnePlus 13 could debut a Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. 


A few days back, we heard that the next-gen Snapdragon chip will launch in October 2024. This came from the company’s CMO. Well, its predecessor also came out the same month last year. So, it seems to be on schedule.

Meanwhile, the 8 Gen 4 is said to be based on TSMC’s 3nm process and could bring Adreno 830 GPU and new performance cores, namely Oryon CPU cores. A tipster named Revengus claims the chip could clock a top frequency of 4GHz. That would be a leap from 8 Gen 3’s 3.30GHz top clock speed.

Going with the AI trend, the chip will feature a new neural engine that would mark the “evolution” of the company’s NPU journey. So, the OnePlus 13 could sport on-device AI capabilities like the Samsung Galaxy S24 series and Pixel 8 series.
