Anonymous, 17 Oct 2016I might sound dumb when I ask this but what is nm or 10nm if it has do with generations. Also,... morenm=nanometer which is the size of the chips transistor. Smaller it is means it uses less energy and will produce less heat. This enables them to clock the chips higher and also get better efficiency.
Samsung will be the first company to make 10nm cell phone chip it will also benefit others like Qualcomm who use Samsung to make their high end SOCs like the 820.

It has many arms in the business and tech sector. And they always publish their newest innovations, regardless of the current Note 7 debacle.
This is one of the reasons samsung will continue to stay on top as despite some of the more ignorant and jaded public, samsung continues to move forward. Haters gonna cry in a corner, and nobody's going to care about them.
I might sound dumb when I ask this but what is nm or 10nm if it has do with generations. Also, how is this special than other companies (sorry if this is so obvious but I don't understand it at all. I wouldn't think a snapdragon chip would be so complicated!)
Sammy keeps on publishing their positive news so that people can forget about their negative news (Note 7)...

AMD vs Intel have shown us great capability difference that design and the rest of the tech could do.
Surely it might be slightly faster and efficient than the 14nm at very least but might turn into another SnapDragon 810
Well, will it explode and come out with Galaxy Boom, Galaxy C4 or Galaxy Explode series?

Samsung do state that they have the tech for producing up to 7nm SoC but they are trying to phase them in slowly and letting the rest of the tech to keep up. (also more profit)
But Note 7 change the plan and everything is being fast forwarded. Good for us, hopefullly. I mean, hopefully SoC design and the rest of tech part is capable to fully utilize the 10nm and is not 10 nm in the name only.
not only does Samsung flood the market with their phones, but also through mobile news.
