Qualcomm to release more information about the Snapdragon 835 chipset at next month's CES
Last month, Qualcomm introduced its new high-end chipset, the Snapdragon 835. A teaser released by Qualcomm yesterday via tweet, hinted that at CES in Las Vegas, the company will be putting the Snapdragon 835 "into focus." The chip will reportedly be built by Samsung using its 10nm process, and offers support for Quick Charge 4. With the latter, a quick 5-minute charge of the battery will provide up to 5-hours of battery life.

We are hoping that in Vegas, Qualcomm fills in the spaces on some information about the Snapdragon 835. For example, will this chip carry a quad-core CPU like the Snapdragon 820, or will it revert back to an octa-core CPU like the Snapdragon 810 SoC? Qualcomm also needs to fill us in on clock speeds and new features. We do have some clues thanks to a GFXBench benchmark test, which showed that the chip will have an octa-core CPU running as fast as 2.2GHz. The Adreno 540 GPU will crunch graphics 30% faster than the Adreno 530 used on the Snapdragon 820/821.

So far, it would seem that both the LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 are in line to be the first phone powered by the Snapdragon 835. While Samsung's new flagship was originally rumored to be unveiled on February 26th just before the start of MWC in Barcelona, the latest buzz around the water cooler suggests that the phone will now be unveiled in April. Meanwhile, there is talk that LG is pushing forward with its plans to get the LG G6 to market before the Galaxy S8.

CES 2017 starts on January 5th and runs through January 8th.

It'll also be the first Qualcomm processor to run full Windows.

I think Qualcomm has tied up with Kodak and will improve on camera HW/SW side!! Hopefully that should happen.

I hope camera makers would partner up with phone OEMs to add in imaging processors and sensors as P&S cameras are no longer a viable market. DSLRs on the oher hand will always be there.

Kodak isn't the Kodak of old. They have been bought out many times. They are just a name now.

I see this chip only performing on GB4 2400/6200. That is still slower than the A10. Single core speeds on Android CPU manufacturers are two generations behind Apple. I hate to say it but Apple will be the first ARM processor to 5000 single core speeds next year.

Of course but unlike iOS, Android takes advantage of all cores and it had been proven... Hell the Chrome browser is capable of utilizing 8 cores. I have rooted my OP3, installed a custom kernel and ROM and my phone is now faster than an iPhone 7 despite the 820 being a lot worse than the A10. Single core is useless on Android now since 99% of apps can fully use 4 cores or more

Let's hope for a72/73 big cores and a35/36 little cores.
