Qualcomm reserved about 10 minutes to the unveiling of its new Snapdragon 845 chipset at the Tech Summit that kicked off early today. However, the chipmaker promised to offer details about its powerful product tomorrow, December 6.
Until then, it's worth mentioning that, once again, the Snapdragon 845 is the result of the collaboration between Qualcomm and Samsung. ES Jung, president and general manager of the foundry business, Samsung Electronics, confirmed that his company will actually build the Snapdragon 845 chipset.
Xiaomi Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lei Jun was among the last guests who took the stage at the Tech Summit to announce that his company's next flagship will use the Snapdragon 845 processor.
Besides the Xiaomi Mi 7, we can safely assume the Snapdragon 845 chip will power Samsung's new wave of Galaxy S flagships, but Sony, HTC, and LG may use the same CPU for their top-of-the-line smartphones. We'll be giving you more details about Qualcomm's newly unveiled Snapdragon 845 on December 6, so stay tuned.
