Speaking of the MSM8998, the chipset appeared in a number of listings on India's Zauba over the last few months. That is the website where imports into the country and exports out of it are tracked. Shipped into India from the U.S., the Snapdragon 830 chipset was installed inside a prototype with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of flash storage. There is some talk that Qualcomm will call the MSM8998 the Snapdragon 835 chipset instead. but there is nothing definitive on this front.
Samsung will reportedly use the Snapdragon 830 SoC on half of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 edge units it builds. For this year's Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, all markets except for the U.S. and China employ the Exynos 8890. In those two countries, the Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood.
The value of each chip and prototype device shipped into India by Qualcomm amounted to $1,541. 80 units were delivered inside India from September 12 through October 6th

Snapdragons are meh at most nowadays, they need some real competition in the high end space.

Well considering this SD 830 will be the first to use LPDDR4X ram and not LPDDR4 ram, which Alan F forgot to mention or doesn't know. But only Samsung right now has LPDDR4X ram which uses over a lot less energy than regular LPDDR4 ram, and with no degradation in speed. That is huge savings for a battery 0.6 volts vs 1.1 volts.

Qualcomm are only significantly behind in terms of CPU They still have top notch modems, GPUs, ISPs, DSPs, memory bandwidth, ... e.g. The 820's GPU throttles less than the A9/A10's/8890's and is more efficient than the A9/8890's Very impressive considering the A10 is ~8 months newer and built on TSMC's 16FF+ process (10% better performance characteristics than Samsung's 14LPP according to a former AnandTech editer) Its just their CPUs that are holding them back

Snapdragons' specs look good on paper but does not perform as well as Exynos. I'm glad I'm living in Canada, and we will likely get the Exynos version!

I have oneplus one and iPhone 6SP...S801 scores nearly half in single core result compared to A9. And yet, both devices run equally smooth. No signs of stutters whatsoever. Snapdragons are really good with properly optimized android os...cyanogen in case of oneplus one.

Snapdragons have no competition that's why they're in everything

I hope that this new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 does reduce the number of phone explosions that has happened recently. With Quick Charge 4, "5 hours of use from just 5 minutes of charging.” It is something i doubt, like how Google said at first how the Pixel could charge "7 hours in 15 minutes"
