Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipset is listed on India's Zauba import-export site
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
