Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 845 chip for next year's flagshipsBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 6 December 2017 | Categories: news
As has become routine in recent years, Qualcomm has a new Snapdragon processor designed for use in flagship devices. Unsurprisingly named the Snapdragon 845, this mobile platform is the successor to this year's Snapdragon 835, which featured in some of 2017's top flagship phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG V30+, Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
It's unclear at this stage which upcoming phones will tout the processor, or whether Samsung will horde the majority of CPUs produced for its own use during the first half of 2018. Qualcomm did say that it would integrate the Snapdragon 845 into some Windows 10 powered notebooks too.
For now the full details of the new CPU are unknown, but it's believed to utilise a 10 nanometer architecture as its forebearer did, with the Qualcomm X20 LTE modem also being paired with the processor.
There will certainly be more information on the Snapdragon 845 forthcoming during the rest of this week's Snapdragon Tech Summit, so watch this space.
