Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be powered by the Snapdragon 836 chipset?

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be powered by the Snapdragon 836 chipset?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be unveiled in August. The other day, one of the big questions surrounding the phablet might have been answered by an unnamed Samsung executive. The latter reportedly told a Korean publication that the fingerprint scanner for the device will not be embedded under the screen. This news has yet to show up on Note 8 renders, most of which fail to show a rear-facing fingerprint button similar to what is found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

While the Galaxy Note 8 has long been rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, a new rumor suggests that it will be the first phone to sport the Snapdragon 836 chipset inside. The buzz around the water cooler is that the Snapdragon 836 will have a maximum CPU core speed of 2.5GHz, up from the current 2.45GHz clock speed on the 825. In addition, the enhanced SoC will feature a GPU running at 740MHz.

After the Galaxy Note 8, we should see the Snapdragon 836 SoC powering the unannounced LG V30, and the next Pixel models. Qualcomm did something similar last year when it made small changes to the Snapdragon 820 and released it as the Snapdragon 821 chipset.

The next top-of-the-line chipset expected to come from Qualcomm is the rumored Snapdragon 845. Reportedly, this will first be found inside the LG G7 as a way to pay back the manufacturer for whatever role it might have had in allowing Samsung to have the first shot at the Snapdragon 835. The LG G6 is powered by the Snapdragon 821 even though it was released slightly before the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+

So sad, you're still salty that the Note 8 will have a rear fingerprint scanner. Don't worry, Apple might show them how to do it right when Samsung's CEO visits Cupertino to sit at Tim Cooks feet and learn.

And Appple will continue to buy parts from Samsung because they are unable to manufacture their own.

Samsung Pay-LoopPay, bought by Samsung Bixby-Viv Labs, bought by Samsung Infinity display-Invented by the FPD section of Toppan Electronics, and Samsung pays a licensing fee to use that display type. Samsung's semiconductor processes-Developed by the Sematech consortium, and Samsung pays licensing fees to the member universities that hold the rights to the designs. Care to hear more about how Samsung is unable to develop their own tech, but is adept at buying it? Nah, I didn't think so.

Lol You have no idea what both Apple and Samsung are capable of developing dude.

Siri - Viv labs Display - Samsung Processor designing - Samsung Flash memory - Samsung Mobile DRAM - Samsung Taptic engine - Nidec corp. Gyroscope & accelerometer - STM Cellular baseband modem - Qualcomm Power management module - Qualcomm Touchscreen controller - ADI Lol & this isheep thinks that apple makes all this major things itself. Even 3 of the major components are made by "SAMSUNG". Just apply antiseptic on BURNED area & chill you SHEEPLE. Have a good day.

Another idiot, but here we go; Samsung Pay-LoopPay, bought by Samsung Bixby-Viv Labs, bought by Samsung Infinity display-Invented by the FPD section of Toppan Electronics, and Samsung pays a licensing fee to use that display type. Samsung's semiconductor processes-Developed by the Sematech consortium, and Samsung pays licensing fees to the member universities that hold the rights to the designs. Now apply ointment to your a-nus, and have a nice day!

LMAO you apparently didn't got my comment. The things which you mentioned here are the same things which I replied to you in your previous comment. LOL you iSheeps can't digest the fact that major components of the iPhone are done by Samsung. Though your this comment don't justify anything rather mocking same things to which I replied & you didn't even properly defended my comment. So sad sheeple. Please apply Butthurt cream on your butt you iSheeple.

Apple-rulz You are one dumbazz troll. Samsung is making apple display, so if Samsung can't get it right for the note 8 then that means it would work for apple either.

I knew you were stupid from your other posts, but I didn't realize until now that you are VERY stupid. Let me try to explain; Apple designs and engineers their own parts. Once they get, say in this case, the screens with the fingerprint scanner perfected to their specs, THEN they will tell Samsung how to build them. It's sort of like Apple is the architectural firm, and Samsung is the construction company-all said company does is follow the supplied blueprint from the architect. I doubt you understand what I wrote, but at least maybe you learned a new word or two.

Apple is architectural and Samsung is both Architectural and construction. The only thing Apple designs and Samsung manufactures is the A chip. DRam, Storage, memory and Displays are Samsung's architecture and construction.

@apple-rulz You know so much about apple and samsung tech. Yet you can't afford a current gen iPhone or the S8. The irony of your life !

Post 37 It has already been said they would not have it ready, but even I don't believe rumors. It either will be or it won't. But you know what, I don't really give a s**t about it, hell I don't even care if Samsung ever does it. It's just so.ething that is not important for me. Any one that would buy a phone just because of it is the stupid one instead of a phone that meets their needs. I bet your the one that buys a phone just because you think it's​ cool to have a apple and not because it suits your needs. Now go back in your basement.

Of course it matters to you, that's why you keep mentioning it. Acting petulant won't help your cause.

No that is not how it works. SAMSUNG make displays and Apple choses which one they want. Nkt everyome buikd custom parts because its expensive. Gosh your stupid.

I agree actually, IMO, the stylus is the only thing that makes me classify a phone as phablet, and only Note series has this accessory.

U can tell that samsung is really trying hard to make it up to the fans. Good one. Its just that the spec from geekbench today tells us that the pixel 2 will use the 835 (which is rumored to use the 836 here). So lets hope this report is true. Anyway, lets hope the 836 isn't just an overclocked 835. Btw samsung should ditch qualcomm and use their exynos chip universally instead. Its more optimized for that chip as against QC.
