Beats Samsung Galaxy S8
Xiaomi Mi6 is launching in the coming week and the most of the details about the new Snapdragon 835 based phone have been revealed.
First of many
ElePhone is planning to launch s large number of new phones in the next few months including the three-side bezel-less Elephone S8. This first Helio X30 powered smartphone with 10nm deca-core SoC is called the X8 Lite.
720,000 sold in South Korea
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is experiencing very high sales on most of the markets and the company released some of the first sales numbers.
With high-end Helio X20 SoC inside
The Elephone S7 launched roughly a year ago, and it packed a MediaTek Helio X20 MTK6797 SoC, 3GB RAM and 16GB storage. The successor of this phone, called the Elephone S8, comes with a three-side bezel-less screen and an updated specification.
The second Snapdragon 835
Xiaomi Mi5 was one of the best priced Snapdragon 820 phones on the market and the company is planning to launch the Xiaomi Mi6 successor on April 19th.
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.
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.
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.
