Qualcomm has been among the biggest names when it comes to the world of smartphone technology. The processors made by Qualcomm power hundreds of millions of devices all over the globe. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 is their most powerful processor. The company is now working on their next major launch, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836, which will be seen on Samsung’s upcoming device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which is currently being expected to come out during the IFA 2017, is one of the most awaited phones of the year. Current speculations indicate that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be the first smartphone to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor.
Do not expect any major changes from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 as it will just be an incremental update with a few small tweaks here and there. This will be similar to how the Snapdragon 821 came out last year for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL as an update to the Snapdragon 820 that was released earlier. We expect that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 too, will be just another incremental update with no major changes to the overall architecture.
While this is what we know about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836, readers must keep in mind that this news is yet to be confirmed by both, Samsung as well as Qualcomm. The processor is likely to be a part of the upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 as well.
Talking of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, the device will launch as the successor to last years’ controversial Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Samsung is expected to launch the phone with the Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. The Note 8 is expected to feature a dual camera on the back, and will be the first Samsung flagship to do so. Design wise, it is expected to be pretty much an elongated version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 that released earlier this year. Stay tuned with us for more updates.
