Samsung has already announced that its next flagship will skip the traditional Mobile rld Congress unveiling this year, now Sin of Forbes reports that none of the phones released before it will include the new Qualcomm silicon. That includes HTC’s Ultra U, which was already announced to include the Snapdragon 821, most likely ’s G6. According to Sin’s source, “The Snapdragon 835 won’t be available in large quantities until after the Galaxy S8 launches.” TechCrunch previously reported that Samsung semiconductor would fab the new chip for Qualcomm on its new 10nm process. But Samsung’s chip manufacturing business isn’t really the same arm of the company as the mobile division. The Snapdragon 820 was manufactured by Samsung on it’s 14nm FinFET process, the first phone to use that chip was the Max o from TV. It’s more likely that Samsung just has an agreement to buy the entire initial inventory of the chip, leaving other manufacturers to wait for later production runs. The new processor brings a load of new features, including new Kyro 280 C, 25 percent faster 3D graphics, much improved power efficiency, dual 14-bit image signal processors, Qualcomm’s new X16 E modem. y this matters: one manufacturers are constantly battling over specs, if true, this is a big win for Samsung. ile we’re still waiting to see what kind of real-world improvements the Snapdragon 835 brings over the 821, a window of Galaxy S8 exclusivity, however small, will bring a major advantage to the new hset on paper, will likely make its competitors seem instantly outdated.
