While Qualcomm is currently trying to make amends for its ‘short supplied’ Snapdragon 835 SoC that is delaying many handset releases, leaks on its future SoCs are still making waves online.
Now, it seems the next flagship mobile processor is already in works, as Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC has reportedly been spotted on the company official website.
Going by one report, the Snapdragon 845 processor is in the works and will be built on a new faster, more efficient 7nm fabrication process.
More so, it is being rumored that the upcoming SoC will debut on the Galaxy S9 next year.
Furthermore, the report further adds that the Snapdragon 845 SoC will be launched this year, and will ship on devices in the first quarter of 2018.
In a separate news, the new 7nm process has been started by TSMC, and it is now in a trial production stage. This new process is said to make a handset much faster than before.
The 7nm process can also be fitted in a smaller frame and will enhance performance by up to 25 to 30 percent when compared to the current 10nm process.
The report adds that Snapdragon 845 SoC’s work is also underway and will be released in early 2018, and will reportedly be pushed out with the Samsung Galaxy S9. The SoC is constructed on the 7nm process, however, the process won’t be exclusive to the Snapdragon 845 SoC only.
