Qualcomm announced 10nm FinFET process, and introduced Quick Charge 4 fast charge technology, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, its specifications have become the focus of market attention. For Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, is currently available to determine the 10nm FinFET process, Quick Charge 4 and Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE Modem.
However, there are some earlier information about Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 was revealed.
If no information is wrong, then, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 will use Kryo 200 architecture. As for what is Kryo 200 architecture, it is speculated that the current architecture Kryo upgraded version, it will be what are the characteristics, is not known; GPU part is Adreno 540, is generally believed to be an upgraded version of Adreno 530, and does not have the infrastructure change much.
Part number of cores will be upgraded to 4 + 4 configuration.
The number of cores on the processor upgrade, in fact, there is a similar market earlier rhetoric, but later agreed that most of the news will remain at 4-core configuration, so 4 + 4 core voice weak slowly away.
In addition, the memory portion will begin supporting LPDDR4X policies, which SK Hynix and Samsung Electronics have been ready.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the fact codenamed MSM8976 Plus lead the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 more of our attention.
Samsung Electronics 14nm LPP process may use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Kryo architecture, but there may be ARM Cortex-A73 with the ARM Cortex-A53, the current SoC for this information is still too small, you’ll have to take it so. Although the processor architecture is quite advanced, but Modem part to maintain the current Snapdragon 600 series mainstream Snapdragon X10 LTE Modem.
Memory support portion to LPDDR4, and can be used with high-speed UFS 2.1, it is standard on the books, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with Huawei Kirin 960 is somewhat similar.
10nm FinFET manufacturing process Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 no accident, then, will be starting to Samsung GALAXY S8, while Chinese brand earliest to around in March will have a means debut; 14nm FinFET LPP of Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 will be the fastest in the second quarter launched means, for now, the front line of Chinese brands will choose this SoC.
