Qualcomm reportedly giving Samsung a deal on Snapdragon 805 for the Galaxy Note 4

Qualcomm reportedly giving Samsung a deal on Snapdragon 805 for the Galaxy Note 4
The rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have long held that the device would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, and now it seems that we have confirmation. ZDNet Korea is claiming not only that the Note 4 will be using the Snapdragon 805, but that Qualcomm is giving Samsung a special deal on the chipsets.

The source says that Qualcomm is giving Samsung a special discount on the Snapdragon 805, but the actual language used makes that claim a bit wobbly. According to the source, the discount brings the price of the Snapdragon 805 to around "two digits per chip", which implies somewhere in the $10 to $99 range. This is not only a very large range, but it also doesn't necessarily imply much of a discount, given that the Snapdragon 801 found in the Galaxy S5 cost about $41 per chip, according to the IHS teardown report. 

It is unclear why Samsung would have gotten a deal on the processors, though the volume that Samsung sells could be part of it. The reported discount has also apparently angered LG, which doesn't appreciate Samsung getting special treatment. Still, it does seem to confirm that the Galaxy Note 4 will feature the Snapdragon 805.

Because of inefficiency of tegra K1, it's impossible to put it into a smartphone, even at this size, without a heatsink.

It would be possible with good engineering/design, though might mean the phone will have to be a extra mm or two thicker Also Nvidia could underclock the K1 as well AnandTech used GFXBench T-Rex benchmark to test the battery life of the new Shield Tablet The 800/801/A7 get about 25~ fps, the K1 gets nearly 70 fps The K1 had quite bad results when uncapped, since it was pushing nearly 70 fps compared to the others which are only pushing about 25 fps When capped to 30 fps (still higher the ~25 fps) the Shield Tablet last longer than the Note 3 & Note Tab S 8.4 The K1's temps stayed under 50C, which is similar to the others http://www.anandtech.com/show/8329/revisiting-shield-tablet-gaming-ux-and-battery-lif

Bud, if these guys are willing to bash android every time they can, why can't they keep their word? removing the article was stupid, and their "neutrality" it's just BS

This is not spam. They should know that they should be responsible. No matter how much they are in love with Apple. Right???

Let it go. Life is short to be chasing dark cloud besides 5 years I am using Symbian, 3 years ago I am using iOS. Keep an open mind and use What you like best. Android has 84% market share and still growing due to high specs budget brands like XiaoMi.

I was an ios user and I can assure that ios sucks more then any android

Thank you very much. Believe what you want to, the truth remains the same.

If the truth remains the same, why the article in which YOU helped was removed? Truth is different on each person. I'm based on facts.

I just provided some indisputable evidences, and someone panicked.

Or, somebody in charge realized they'd published an article with input from a troll who had been banned twice in the past month for being a troll.

They have whole articles that are not true, but they don't remove them. This time they must have made really fool of themselves. LOL

Your right the truth remains the same. World wide Android still commands the majority of the sales around the globe with 85% of the sales. Its because Android offers great devices now that are inexpensive, like the moto g and others for a fraction of any iPhone. Just wise and frugal shoppers who knows what's best for them.

Yes, the truth does remain the same. It's a shame you're so often blinded to it by your love for Apple / hate for others.

Aha, most apps are written in Java? 10~15% vs 85~90%. I'd call the latter the *vast* majority. Your definition may vary though.

What? What are you even talking about? Where do you see anything about java in my post?

JakeLee

I've been telling this since almost a whole year : Most serious apps aren't written in Java on Android. But you Androtakus kept telling that most apps are written in Java, thus making Android's transition smooth. "Developers who care about their users don't use Java anymore." Java sucks, and Android is nothing more than Linux with pre-installed Java vm. Android will be 64-bit ready after 3~4 years from now on, and people purchasing the first 64-bit Android phones are morons.

"I've been telling this since almost a whole year : Most serious apps aren't written in Java on Android." Jake may have an axe to grind against Android, but there is a lot of fact in this statement. About 60% of the apps from large top-tier app makers are written in C/C++ for Android. However, outside of this "top tier", the vast majority of Android apps are still in Java.

You are wrong. Maybe you didn't read the article before it vanished. From the top 25 free, non-game apps, only three are Java apps. That makes 88%, and it wouldn't look much differently if the research was extended to top 100. Java sucks much worse than people might think. There are reasons why the devs avoid Java.
