A couple of weeks ago we first heard that Samsung might use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset for next year's Galaxy S7, and now a new report pretty much confirms this possibility.
According to a Korean publication, Samsung is currently busy putting the Snapdragon 820 through some very intensive testing. The results of all those tests will have a bearing in whether Samsung decides to use the Snapdragon 820 in the Galaxy S7 or not.
At the moment things seem to be going well, which means we may once again see a Samsung flagship with two SoC choices, each offered in certain markets only. This was the case for a few years, until this year when the Galaxy S6 only went with Samsung's own Exynos chipset. The reason for that probably has something to do both with the performance of the Exynos 7420, but also with the much-publicized overheating problems that the Snapdragon 810 encounters.
Its successor, the Snapdragon 820, is set to be quite different in that regard, though, so it may once again be seen in a high-end Samsung device.
I trust Samsung they definitely saw it coming after their own testing of the 810 showed that crappy cpu is prone to overheating thus causing the system to thermal throttle. The 7420 is better in every way and this is coming from a Snapdragon 800/801/...
Neither of us cannot do anything about that. But as every time I visit this site, most of the time it occurs to me that those hits or favorites must'nt be as made-up nor fabricated as some think they are. I don't fully believe they even the slightest...
I read just fine thanks anonymous nobody. But in your post what I can't seem to read is anything resembling a point. So either make one or jog on!
