10nm LPE with Snapdragon X20 1.2Gb modem
There is more information about the upcoming Snapdragon 845 as well as the Huawei Kirin 970 and we wanted to share it with you.
14nm and Kryo for mainstream
Qualcomm has gained a lot of momentum and managed to gain market share in the mainstream from MediaTek and others and the company has just announced the Snapdragon 660 and 630 that will help it to succeed in the future.
Windows with no hint of x86
Qualcomm has dropped a huge hint that we will see ARM based PCs in the shops in the fourth quarter.
ZenFone will be delayed
Asustek will be delaying its its fourth-generation ZenFone until June or July after failing to get its paws on Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835 processor and not wanting to use the older-generation Snapdragon 821.
Sounds better than 830
Some might be interested how Qualcomm chose the name Snapdragon 835, especially as most people expected to see the Snapdragon 830 replacing last year’s champion, the Snapdragon 820.
Our own testing of score consistency
Before we tell you how well Snapdragon 835 benchmarked we wanted to share one more important thing. The 10nm chip really stays cool even after five runs of the same benchmark. Some of its competitors will fail significantly after five runs.
After years of whispers, Xiaomi finally announced its processor codenamed Pinecone and decided to call it the Surge S1. After Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi also goes for an in-house processor, but it is positioning itself it to the mainstream market. The first phone to get it is the Xiaomi 5c.
Looking better and better
While we are yet to see an actual device powered by Qualcomm's upcoming flagship Snapdragon 835 SoC, the latest benchmark shows promising performance.
Can’t show it off at MWC
As we thought, Sony will not be announcing its flagship Xperia smartphone at MWC this month because Samsung appears to be hoarding the chips.
