Along with Digital Chat Station, another popular leaker goes by the name IceUniverse revealed some juicy stuff related to Snapdragon’s 8 Gen 1+ (SM8475). According to IceUniverse, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 will be launched with TSMC Snapdragon 8 gen1 plus (SM8475).

IceUniverse’s tweet:

The Snapdragon 8 gen1 plus (SM8475) processor has yet to be launched, but it is scheduled to be introduced later this month and made available in smartphones soon after. Samsung made a curious decision here, as the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 both went with the Snapdragon 888 instead of the Snapdragon 888 Plus. This year, that will not be the case.

This is a building story and we may update this post with new information. Also, the information is taken from various unofficial sources so, it is not expected to be 100% correct.
