According to the report from the unknown source, Samsung has decided to introduce Qualcomm’s 10nm Snapdragon 835 chips for its Galaxy S8 and according to the reports, it will be publicized on April 14.
As the company has joined hands with Qualcomm for building a 10nm chip, however, the company’s Chip division and phone unit are not included. The South Korean manufacturer is also getting “first dibs” on the snapdragon 835.
Due to this, all other manufacturers will not be able to design phones powered by Snapdragon 835 until April 14. And it means that LG G6, which is set to unveil on Februray 26 will be powered by Last year’s Snapdragon 821.
Therefore, it is hard to estimate the performance difference between Snapdragon 835 and 821, though last year’s SoC misses some features like Bluetooth 5, Quick Charge 4.0, Gigabit LTE, and improved VR chops.
It seems like LG will alternatively focusing on advancing the software and making major improvement differences in other areas.
The manufacturer has already mocked water resistance, dual-camera setup, as well as 5.7-inch QHD + display, and slim bezels at the front as leaked last week.
Moreover, due to unavailability of Snapdragon 835 during spring season will likely lead to the arrival of new devices debuting in the summer.
