Samsung Galaxy S8 is in the works and like the Galaxy S7, it should be announced just before the MWC 2017 event kicks off in Barcelona, Spain on February 27.
There is a lot still surrounding Samsung as a company, especially due to the recent issues of the Galaxy Note 7. Many have lost faith in the company’s flagship lineup, but the tech giant is reportedly working on everything possible to debut 2017 with a bang.
While most of the reports surrounding Samsung Galaxy S8 are based on rumors, the latest is not. In continuing its partnership with American giant Qualcomm, Samsung has announced that it will be using its 10nm process to manufacture what is to be the fastest smartphone processor in 2017 – the Snapdragon 835.
Many Samsung phones selling in the U.S. are using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, with the latest being Snapdragon 820. Rumor was that the American chipset maker will come in with a Snapdragon 830, but it seems the two companies have other ideas. When the two are compared, the Snapdragon 835 will come with a huge number of improvements in terms of performance power, battery life and so on.
With the 10nm process, the Snapdragon 835 will be the thinnest ever processor to be manufactured. What this means is that we are facing the potential of having an even slimmer Samsung Galaxy S8 while at the same time carrying a large battery.
The first devices to use the Snapdragon 835, which should be released at the upcoming January CES 2017, will be here during Q1 2017. As noted earlier, Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be announced in February 2017, making it one of the phones that will ship with this chipset. As usual, some models of the Galaxy S8 should ship with the company’s own Exynos SoC, which is believed to be the 8895, based on the same 10nm process.
In a bid to avoid a repeat of the Galaxy Note 7 saga, Samsung has reportedly hired its local and international competitor LG to take care of the batteries that power the Galaxy S8.
