New rumors suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the first new Qualcomm chip and will debut slightly faster. Only later will SoC appear in other smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy S9 may receive the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor on the market. Of course, this system would also be on board a larger version, the Galaxy S9 +. If you believe the new rumors, it would be the same situation where the Koreans would trade the Qualcomm market, as before the release of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +. In the case of currently available smartphones, Samsung's 10-nanometer process technology was used. The agreement between the two companies has also allowed the Koreans to have a temporary exclusivity as well as to break out in terms of performance against the competition. If you remember well, then this year before the debut of the "eight" on the market was in vain to look for any smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor. It was only after some time that it began to appear in more devices. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/743590/data-premiery-samsung-galaxy-s9-2018/ So it looks like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + situation will be similar. The new Qualcomm chipset, the Snapdragon 845, can be re-manufactured by Samsung and will initially go onboard the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +. Gossip also indicates that new flagships will appear a month faster than usual. Earlier we had very similar reports. For now we do not know details about the new processor and its capabilities, nor the "nines". More information should be expected in the coming weeks. Source: Eldar Murtazin
