Now that the first handsets with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 under the hood are already shipping, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 is not longer the fastest mobile processor in the wild. However, it seems that Qualcomm's next-gen flagship SoC is closed than expected. A Qualcomm chip codenamed MSM8998 has just been spotted on an official support page.

While Microsoft did not confirm the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 name, the MSM8998 processor appears on Microsoft.com as a chip compatible with Windows 10 Mobile. Qualcomm's previous flagship chips are the notorious Snapdragon 808 (MSM8992), Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994), and Snapdragon 820 (MSM8996). If the chip maker continues to follow this trend, its next top-of-the-line mobile processor is the MSM8998. Unfortunately, they still have to confirm the commercial name.

The interesting part of the story is that previous rumors mentioned Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 would launch in 2017, offering support for up to 8 GB RAM and using the 10 nm manufacturing technology. We will get back to the MSM8998 as soon as we hear anything new, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
