Qualcomm is very much an active player in the mobile space with its Snapdragon chipsets, which are commonly found in Android phones and tablets. At present, the Snapdragon 845 is Qualcomm's flagship mobile processor. It is built on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process, is fast (for a mobile part), and has been around for several months. The chip might also be old news pretty soon—there is a listing on Geekbench that suggests Qualcomm is already mass producing its next flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 855. The database entry points to an unnamed Xiaomi handset with an "SDM855 for ARM64" underneath the hood. That suggests a Snapdragon 855 processor, and if that is really the case, then it stands...

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have been on the market for just a few months, and the Galaxy Note 9 has yet to be announced. However, the rumor mill is already churning, digging up information on the upcoming Galaxy S10, which should make its debut early next year.

There is not a whole lot to go on at this early stage. However, a Twitter post by Roland Quandt, an active leaker (or "finder," as he prefers) of unreleased mobile devices claims that Qualcomm's contractors have been chirping about the Snapdragon 855 (SDM855).

The ink has barely dried on the press release announcing Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845, and there are already rumors swirling about its eventual successor: the Snapdragon 855. The Snapdragon 845 is built on a refined version of Samsung's 10nm FinFET process (an evolution of the tech used for the Snapdragon 835), however, the Snapdragon 855 will be built on new 7nm process technology. Whereas Samsung has been responsible for manufacturing both the Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 845, Nikkei is reporting that Qualcomm has selected TSMC to produce the Snapdragon 855. TMSC is also reportedly being tapped to produce Qualcomm's next generation modem chips for smartphones and lightweight convertible devices.... Read more...
