It’s no secret that next year the flagships will work on the new Qualcomma Snapdragon 845 processor. It is the successor of the Snapdragon 835 system, which stands in such smartphones as Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 (USA and China), Sony Xperia XZ Premium and LG V30 . The premiere (more precisely, the presentation) of the new processor will take place in early December this year.
Snapdragon 835 was introduced a year ago at CES in January 2017. Now everything indicates that we will see the new system a month earlier. But, most likely, this will not affect the rapid appearance of the first smartphones with Snapdragonem 845. Previous leakage suggests that just like a year ago, the entire first batch of new Qualcomm systems was ordered by Samsung. Thus, the first smartphone with the new processor should be Samsung Galaxy S9, while in Europe there will be a version with an Exynos processor manufactured by Samsung.
What do we know about Qualcomm Snapdragon 845?
The California mobile systems manufacturer has already confirmed that it is working on the Snapdragon X20 modem. He is likely to stand in the new SoC. Due to this, next year the flagships will be devices of the category 18, that is, downloading of data through the LTE network with a maximum speed of 1.2 Gbit / s will work. Previous rumors say that Snapdragon 845 will be an 8-core processor with four cores ARM Cortex-A75 and four Cortex-A53. For the graphics will answer chip Adreno 630, which will be much more effective, from the current Adreno 540. The new processor, of course, will be more effective than its predecessor. However, it is unlikely that it will be more effective in the matter of energy consumption. Previous leakage indicates that Snapdragon 845 will be manufactured by Samsung in the same 10-nm FinFET production process, in which Snapdragon 835 was made.
The new SoC should be presented during the Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii, which will be held between December 4 and 8. We will write a more detailed article after the premiere.
