Qualcomm Promises More Information On Snapdragon 835 At CES 2017


It's only a couple of days until 2017 is with us. The year will bring a lot of new upgrades. The first quarter will witness 10nm's official launch in the mobile ecosystem. Samsung's 10nm process will feature on the Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895. These, will feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6. Today, we've got a little more official information on the Snapdragon 835. Take a look below to find our more.

Qualcomm Promises More Details For The Snapdragon 835 At The CES 2017

In 2015, Qualcomm was eager to reverse its earlier misfortunes. The US chipmaker started to release bits and pieces of information for the Snapdragon 835 a lot of months prior to its release. The main piece that was consistently highlighted were the processor's Kryo cores and Heterogeneous System Architecture. Still, the Snapdragon 820 didn't live up to all the hype surrounding it and only managed to avoid its predecessor's throttling issues.

With the 835, Qualcomm's taking a different approach. There has been a virtual blanket on any official information about the processor. In fact, the only details which have surfaced officially are some very broad performance numbers, the manufacturing process for the Snapdragon and what modem it'll feature next year. That doesn't tell us anything worth serious consideration and is likely a move made by the company to satiate its shareholders.

Now, the company is all set to share some more information about the processor. According to a twitter post, Qualcomm will officially share more details for the Snapdragon 835 at CES 2017. It reads as, "Our Snapdragon 835 will come into focus at CES 2017." That really doesn't provide a lot of details. For all we known, the company could simply chose to divest the name of the processor's upgraded cores. Or, the Snapdragon 835 will feature on a smartphone that hasn't made it to the rumor mill as of yet.

We're just glad that TSMC's refuted claims of poor 10nm yield. Any manufacturing problems for the processor will result in a lot of delays for next year. For starters, the iPad Pro won't be able to see a timely launch. Neither will Mediatek or Huawei be able to deliver on their promises of 10nm processors. Amidst all of this information, word on Samsung's Exynos 8895 has managed to die out. Apart from today's specifciation leaks, the Korean tech giant and the rumor mill seem to have little information to provide us. We hope that Samsung's got all of its bases covered. Thoughts?
