Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor still on track for H2 2017 release
Samsung and Qualcomm have recently announced the upcoming availability of the Snapdragon 835 processor. Sadly, not many details about the chipset's hardware configuration have been unveiled yet, though Qualcomm promised that more information will be available in the coming weeks.

One thing that we do know for sure is that the Snapdragon 835 is the result of the collaboration between Samsung and Qualcomm. The chipset is made using the South Korean's 10nm FinFET process and it should be commercially available starting Q1 2017.

One of the first smartphones to pack the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor could be Samsung's Galaxy S8, though the information hasn't been confirmed yet.

Despite the fact that many of the rumors concerning Qualcomm's next-generation processor mention the Snapdragon 830, not the 835 model, the former hasn't been confirmed yet.

However, a new rumor coming straight out from China claims the Snapdragon 830 processor is still planned for release in the second half of 2017.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 is rumored to features either six or eight Kryo 200 cores and it will be manufactured using the same 10nm FinFTE process. Also, the chipset will embed the Adreno 519 graphics processing unit and it will feature Cat.12 baseband support.
