Qualcomm announces the Snapdragon 835 processor, in partnership with Samsung.
Qualcomm has announced the newest flagship processor to succeed the Snapdragon 821. The Snapdragon 835 is the result of a collaboration with Samsung.
The processor will use Samsung’s market-leading 10nm FinFET manufacturing technology. This will result in a 30% smaller chip while increasing performance 27% or improving power consumption by up to 40%. The smaller size leaves more room in devices, allowing device designers to use bigger batteries, add extra components, or simply make the devices smaller.
The Snapdragon 835 is in production now, and is expected to start appearing in commercial devices in the first half of 2017. So we won’t see them in BlackBerry’s upcoming Mercury phone, but we could see it in the phones that BlackBerry releases after that.
