But it GearVRs just fine
Google made a lot of noise about its Daydream platform and a few of our colleagues have reported that you cannot install a Daydream app on a Galaxy S8 phone.
Average speeds can double
We had a chance to see the GigabitLTE working at speeds up to 930 Mbps and upload speeds of 127.5 Mbps which is definitely the fastest that we’ve ever seen. But despite the fascination with the top speed, it is more important that GigabitLTE will significantly increase average speeds.
Dramatic jump from Helio X20
MediaTek is expected to bring the Helio X30 deca-core in 10nm based devices to the market in the next few months and we've already got some initial numbers where the company compares the X30 with last years Helio X20.
Not the sharpest knife in the drawer
Intel XMM 7560 is, according to company representatives, coming at some point next year. Since this is the first time we’ve seen an Intel XMM product supporting CDMA, we started asking around where did the modem comes from.
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.
Catching up, fingers crossed strategy
TSMC is currently manufacturing the MediaTek 10nm, deca core based Helio X30 and it looks like in 2018, TSMC might be ready for 7nm and twelve core SoCs from the same house.
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.
Google assistant look alike for the Galaxy S8
Samsung is only a week away from the official announcement of its Galaxy S8 phone and the company officially shared that the new Samsung devices will get a new intelligent interface. The Korean mobile giant is using a rather questionable name, Bixby.
Qualcomm takes the lead
It has been quite some time since Qualcomm announced Snapdragon X16, the world’s first Gigabit LTE modem. The same GigabitLTE Snapdragon X16 modem is now part of the Snapdragon 835 - a 10nm SoC that is about to debut in a dozen high end phones.
Sources close to the matter
Ryzen 7 and now Ryzen 5 have launched and they are putting enormous pressure on Intel in the top-level market segment. After a whole decade, price/performance is definitely on AMD's side and even the upcoming Naples 32 core server part will put enormous pressure on Intel’s cash cow in the server market.
