The Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 might come after all
Just a few weeks ago, Qualcomm officially announed the Snapdragon 835 as the flagship mobile processor for 2017. However, new rumors circulating on Chinese Weibo suggest, that just a few months after the release of the Snapdragon 835, a slightly scaled down version might see the light of day as well. That sidekick to the Snapdragon 835 will be the Snapdragon 830 apparently and it will be available in phones starting in the second half of 2017.
Both processors will be based on the 10 nm FinFET process, Qualcomm and Samsung praised during the presentation. While the Snapdragon 835 will integrate eight Kryo 200 cores, the scaled down version might only feature six of these cores. The Snapdragon 830 will be based on the Adeno 519 GPU as opposed to the Adeno 540 in the Snapdragon 835. Finally, the Snapdragon 830 will only be available with the LTE-Cat.12 modem X12. Both chips will feature Quick Charge 4.0 though.
