While it's barely been a few days since the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ has hit the consumer market, it looks like the company has already made plans for the next big Galaxy flagship. Samsung is reportedly in talks with Qualcomm to build the next-generation Snapdragon 845 processor, which is said to be based on the 7nm manufacturing process.
Samsung and TSMC are said to be the two chip foundries that will produce the Snapdragon 845, who have already sent out test batches on 7nm node. However, the mass production of 7nm chips is said to kick start by early 2018. The new 7nm chips will perform 15% more efficient and 10% faster performances than the existing 10nm Snapdragon 835 CPU.
However, there isn’t any word if it will be Samsung or TSMC who will be mass producing the new Snapdragon 845 chips, and there isn’t any legit confirmation yet if the name of the chip will be as reported. Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ feature a bezel-less design called the Infinity Display for an immersive viewing experience. These devices come powered by the Exynos 8895 processor with 4GB RAM.
