Snapdragon 830 Shows up on Listing Website – Announcement Not Too Far Away Now


Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 830 is going to be manufactured on the 10nm FinFET architecture, allowing the processor running inside it to potentially feature more cores running at a higher clock speed compared to its predecessor, Snapdragon 820. According to details listed on Zauba, Snapdragon 830 has appeared, where it will most likely be tested on prototype devices before it is actually shipped out in actual consumer phones and tablets.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 Features the Model Name MSM8998 – Listing Shows 4GB RAM With LPDDR4X Support

Snapdragon 830 has appeared in a number of listings on India's Zauba over the last few months. For those unfamiliar with the matter, Zauba is a website where import listings fall in India, and exports out of it are tracked. According to the details, the Snapdragon 830 chipset was installed inside a prototype with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of flash storage. According to sources close to the matter, there is a rumor that suggests the Snapdragon 835 is going to be the actual name of the SoC, but there isn’t any concrete detail on the matter.

Other leaked details state that thanks to the 10nm FinFET node, Snapdragon 830 will be able to accommodate an octa-core Kryo processor, and will also be able to increase clock speeds thanks to the latest manufacturing process. This will definitely usher a new level of performance exhibited from the chipset, and the GPU improvements are also said to be astronomical compared to the Adreno 530. It is also said that the chipset’s processor will be able to deliver performance sufficient enough to record 4K videos at a steady 60FPS, but that will also depend on the performance of the camera sensor present in the mobile device.

A new LTE modem is also going to be embedded in the chipset, so performance across various categories are going to be expected. Snapdragon 830 could be present inside Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8, and we also reported that an unnamed device managed to shatter AnTuTu’s benchmarking scores not too long ago. Perhaps this is the unnamed chipset present inside the mobile device. There isn’t any evidence to substantiate these claims so remember to take the AnTuTu score with a grain of salt for now.
