  • The OnePlus 13 may get higher clock speed and on-device AI capabilities as a result of this technology.
  • An under-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner may be included in the OnePlus 13.
  • Details about the OnePlus Ace 3V’s CPU have also leaked. Here is where you may find them.

Rumors of OnePlus 13 chips.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset may make its debut in the OnePlus 13, according to Weibo tipster Smart Pikachu.
We have learned that the next Snapdragon CPU is scheduled to debut in October 2024. The CMO of the business said this. In fact, last year’s same month saw the release of its predecessor as well. So it appears to be happening on time.

Concurrently, the 8 Gen 4 is rumored to be built on TSMC’s 3nm technology, and it may include additional performance cores called Oryon CPU cores in addition of the Adreno 830 GPU. According to a source going by the name Revengus, the chip has a maximum frequency of 4GHz. The top clock speed of 8 Gen 3 is 3.30GHz, so it would be a significant increase.

The chip will have a new neural engine that will represent the “evolution” of the company’s NPU journey, in keeping with the AI trend. Thus, the OnePlus 13 might include AI features built right into the device, similar to what the Samsung Galaxy S24 and Pixel 8 series have.

According to a post on Weibo by tipster DigitalChatStation, the OnePlus 13 may come equipped with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. However, it’s unclear from his post if we should anticipate Goodix sensors, which are less expensive, or Qualcomm sensors.

In related developments, tipster Smart Pikachu has revealed that the OnePlus Ace 3V (also known as the OnePlus Nord 3) may include a new Snapdragon 7 series CPU, a 5,500mAh battery with support for 100W fast charging, and a 1.5K display with a blue-light filter. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 3 processor with up to 16GB of RAM could be that chip.
